Must campers wear a camp T-shirt every day?

No, The wearing of a CGI t-shirt is mandatory only for field trips and will be available for purchase prior to the start of camp.  Each camper recieves 1 free T-shirt. You may want to purchase additional T-shirts.  Since all camp staff and campers wear camp shirts, we are instantly recognizable to each other. While on field trips camp shirts distinguish our campers and staff from other visitors. 

How does my camper find a lost item?


Please mark all belongings with your camper's name and group. This is very important since shirts, backpacks, etc. are identical and individual items are difficult to identify without a label. Lost & Found items are available each day in the office. Please contact us in writing or by phone regarding specific items.

How do I arrange to pick up my camper during the camp day?


If you have to pick up your camper during the day, please notify our office. Once we are aware of your arrival time, we can arrange to have your camper ready for you. Please note that no camper will be released to ANYONE without written permission.

When can I visit my camper?

Camp Gan Israel Day Camp is open for parental visits every camp day. We suggest that you schedule your visit carefully as your camper may be involved in a field trip or other off-campus activity. All visitors will be directed to the camp office for visitor registration and assistance.  

What if my child does not want to participate in a particular activity?

No camper will be forced to participate in any activity. However, we do urge campers to try all activities and take advantage of the complete program offered at Camp Gan Israel. 

How religious is Spirit Kids Camp Gan Israel?

Spirit Kids Camp Gan Israel is a totally non-judgemental environment made up of campers from all Jewish backgrounds. An individual's level of observance is not stressed. All children enjoy a shared Jewish spirit through songs and projects.

Can my camper bring a precious item to camp?

The Camp does not take responsibility for any personal items brought to camp. Personal sports equipment such as baseball bats, hockey sticks, sports balls, etc will be stored by the counselor and used under staff supervision.

We do not permit your camper to bring jewelry, radios, expensive toys, etc. to camp. Spirit Kids Camp Gan Israel supplies everything campers may need.

What does my camper need to bring each day?

Please apply sunscreen at home. We supply all sports and safety equipment such as tennis racquets, baseball mitts, riding helmets, etc.

 How often does my child drink water at camp each day?

There are water coolers and water fountains available around the camp facility as well as the playgrounds with plenty of ice cold water and cups throughout the day. They will be instructed to drink throughout the day. The coolers are refilled as needed throughout the day.

How can I speak with my child's counselor?

A call to the camp office will answer most questions. Since counselors are constantly supervising groups and activities, messages will be taken at the camp office. Please leave your name and evening phone number and the counselor will return your call as soon as possible.

How can I speak with a Camp Director?

During camp hours the directors are available to answer your questions and discuss your concerns @ (949) 702-4175.  After hours call (949) 770 1270 and leave a message, we will make every effort to return your call before 9pm (except Fridays).
