We believe that Camp Gan Israel is the perfect place for your child to have fun, make friends, create memories and grow in their Judaism, in a safe, fun nurturing environment. But, don't just take our word for it, listen to what parents are saying:


My daughter Maya LOVES Gan Izzy!!! She waits all year to this camp! She was received with love and care way beyond our expectations. They were adventuring all week long, pool, parks, hiking, arts and crafts and Challah making on Friday was the most fun for Maya. I can’t recommend it enough!

   Our son Jase had an incredible experience at Camp Gan Izzy . He thoroughly enjoyed each and every day and  especially loved swimming and the field trips . He always had an epic story to tell me about his day at pick up and was tuckered out in the best way from all of his camp adventures . This will absolutely be an annual camp for our children and we are so grateful that it is available in Novato !  - Jessielyn Jackson CGI Mom

Camp Gan Izzy made me really happy because the counselors were so nice and supportive. They came up with such fun activities and we sang Jewish camp songs. I can’t wait to go back next year.” -  Gracie, age 10 1/2 CGI camper


"My daughter absolutely loved Gan Israel. She loved the daily adventures, made many friends and learned new Jewish lessons. She can’t wait to come back next year!"    - Anna Abramzon, CGI Mom

Our three boys had a great time at summer camp!  They enjoyed the fun field trips, swimming, friendships and Jewish learning through games and activities.  The Trader Joe's OU hunt still has them talking all these months later!    - Erin Simon, CGI Mom

Dear Menachem and Adina,  Thank you so much for offering your fun, wholesome and active summer camp for the community!

Having grown up in Novato, I didn't have a Jewish community or summer camp to go to. It is especially moving to send my children to Camp Gan Israel in Novato.

My 8 and 12 year old children loved the activities, the educational fun and the experience they gained by hearing music, learning about reptiles, working on art projects while incorporating Hebrew and Judaism. The counselors were wonderful as well! -  Miriam Menkin
