Enrollment is now underway for Camp Gan Israel in Wellington.
“Camp Gan Israel has a program geared for your child, understanding that all kids are unique and are drawn toward different activities,” Rabbi Mendy Muskal said. “Camp Gan Israel offers something for everyone. We have professional sports instructors, baking experts, dance instruction, jewelry making, karate instruction, trips to exciting venues, swimming, boating, scrapbooking, edible art and so much more.”
“Camp Gan Israel understands the heart of a parent: We all want our children to be in a warm and caring environment,” Rebbitzin Miriam Muskal added. “That is why our counselors are handpicked, dedicated and go beyond measure to ensure the safety and concern for the children.”
This year, Camp Gan Israel will run for five weeks, from June 15 through July 17. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with aftercare and pre-care available (pending minimum enrollment) for a nominal extra fee. Campers can attend the entire five-week season or individual weeks. Hot lunches are included. The camp has a younger division for ages 4 and 5, and an older division for boys and girls ages 6 to 13.
“Camp Gan Israel provides an opportunity for children to spend their vacation time in a Jewish environment where Judaism is fun and alive and something that they can relate to — not just parts of it, but the whole environment,” Rabbi Muskal said. “In the past, we’ve seen that the experience of the campers has an effect on the parents and siblings. It’s a wonderful way to reach out to families.”
“We feel that every Jewish child and every Jewish soul is so important that we want to spend a lot of time and resources on making their experience positive,” Rebitzin Muskal added.
