Camp Gan Israel Farewell Banquet

As the summer draws to a close, campers attending Gan Yisroel in Parksville, NY bid farewell to their newly-found friends and dedicated counselors and teachers at the grand banquet. The next morning they packed their luggage and boarded the buses which would take them back home.

Goodbye Gan Yisroel 5772

As summer camps ends, we present a photo of a Bar Mitzvah that took place in Camp Gan Israel New York in 5717 (1957). One of the three brothers in the photo is a known Shliach and educator in Europe.

Color War! Part 1

After the teams were split up and the generals announced (Generals Shazi Perman and General Avremi Wolf!), we were underway with the best Color War ever. Heading to the dining room (which was transformed into a battle ground of  Red vs Blue) for lunch we munched on piping hot pizza and drank ice cold orange juice. ” Attention Gan Israel make your way for the Team Scavengers!” The dining room split up into 2 sides and the benches were lined around a stage, then we sat quietly waiting for the hilarious scavengers to begin.

Once the scavengers kicked off it was non stop laughing with Lt. General Chesky impersonating various members of the head staff on a lie detector. The fun continued with the next scavenger, a group of random people Shteible Hopping together! (ok so theres a rabbi, a rock star, and a airplane, they walk into a bar……ahahahahahah)

Stay tuned for many updates throughout Color War!

Campers Gone Biking!

Campers of Bunk Yud Bais were chosen to try out the new Biking Activity. Headed by E.C.A.D. Eli Lipskar and Head Counselor Nochum Shapiro the campers set out throughout camp each camper on his own bike, they continued into the Rebbe’s Forest following a special bike path.
Everyone was equipped with a safety helmet, knee pads and elbow pads!
