Gan Israel is much more than a physical break from the school routine and winter activities. It’s a comprehensive summer camp designed to strengthen the body and soul. It provides your child with a rich and wholesome summer vacation of fun and excitement along with friendship and meaningful experiences.
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, games and contests, which are part of the unique Gan Israel experience. Combined with group discussions, these events bring to life the beauty and values of our tradition.
Our summer camp program is enhanced with games, drama, sports, dress-up days, water play, Shabbos parties, Challah baking, and .. oh... so much more. Under the direction of our experienced crafts instructor, campers will have the opportunity to design and take home some wonderful art projects.
Our Summer Camp is centrally located at the Chabad Jewish Center in Vancouver, 9604 NE 126th Ave, Vancouver.
Child development is the most significant ingredient in a healthy camp experience. This is why our staff is the real secret to our success. Our experienced counselors are known for their personal warmth and ability to care for each child as an individual. Each counselor is a role model for our children, promising them friendship which will last forever! Their love for the children is surpassed only by the children’s love for them.
