Safe. Jewish. Fun.
Celebrating 10+ years of Jewish camping in the Nation’s capital!
Our Camp - Jewish Culture
Camp Gan Israel is the largest and fastest growing network of Jewish day camps in the world.
CGI enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trendsetter with innovative ideas and creative programs, forming a safe, Jewish environment where campers make memories to last a lifetime. Gan Israel campers are imbued with a deep sense of pride in their Jewish heritage and a love for the land of Israel. Judaic themes are taught through exciting activities, stories, songs, and games, which are part of the unique CGI experience. Combined with group discussions and educational programs, these events bring to life the beauty and values of our traditions.
No one puts more care into the care of your child. While many camps can offer professional programming, few can compare when it comes to the individual attention we give to our campers and their families. Our experienced counselors are known for their warmth and ability to care for each child as a unique person. Each counselor is a role model for our campers, and their love for the children is often only surpassed by the children’s love for them.
Our camp is conveniently located at TheSHUL (Chabad) in Kalorama, just a few short blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro station. We are pleased to partner with local facilities to provide top level experiences for our campers. With Mitchell Park just a short walk away, we are able to offer full sports and outdoor programs, and our swimming and aquatics activities take place at the state of the art Washington Hilton Living Well facility, located just across the street. Each division also participates in age appropriate field trips, which are often the highlight of the week!
Parents have referred to our camp as “the Jewish all-in-one camp” and we truly have something for everyone! Each summer, we offer a wide variety of activities such as:
Mitzvot & Judaics
Field Trips such as Adventure Park USA, Kayaking, Bowling, and Port Discovery!
