ENTERING OUR 50th AND MOST AMAZING YEAR AT CGI

Camp Gan Israel 50th year logoCGI is off to another smashing (or rather splashing) start! There is nothing like being welcomed by our dedicated staff (not to mention those scrumptious danishes, accompanied by a cool glass of milk.) There is also nothing like being welcome with a storm; a rainstorm. This just goes to show: come rain, shine, thick, or thin, Gan Yisroel is having a blast!
The highlight, of course (other than Head Counselor Yudi’s highly informative speech) was meeting the counselors; and what counselors! The wild applause could only mean one thing; these counselors are on a roll! We can definitely look forward to this summer being the best summer ever!

A SUMMER OF SURPRISES
Nobody could guess what this summer holds, but this start definitely hints at something out-of-the-ordinary.
Imagine this scene: you are seated in the Shul. After getting over the disappointment of camp songs not replacing night activity, you hear a loud popping sound. Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! It’s getting louder and louder. Then, a loud BOOM pierces the air (and your ear). What’s going on?
Have you ever tried snatching a seat when the music stops, only problem is, the seat is twice your height? How about tossing a ball into a basket, feeding a friend cereal, or having a pillow fight…blindfolded? These are just some of the wacky things that tell you: night activity 5765 has taken off with a bang!

FRESH STUFF
What are things like Air Miles, Express Lanes, or Gold and Platinum Memberships doing in Gan Yisroel?
The record-breaking Fresh Air Foundation (formerly known as Mishnayos Baal Peh) CEO, Moshie Frank, is back and better then ever! In this newly innovated display of anticipation, stimulation, and exhilaration, Cocoa Club and Mishnayos Baal Peh will never be the same! With temptations like marshmallows to enhance your hot cocoa, barbecues, privileges, grand-trips, and much more, who could resist?
