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.

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

Can my camper bring a precious item to camp?
Camp Gan Israel supplies everything campers need for the camp day.  Precious items may get lost or broken and we do discourage bringing them to camp.

What does my camper need to bring each day?
Campers need to bring swim gear on swim days.  We supply all sports and safety equipment.

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?
Rabbi Chezky and Bassie are available to answer your questions and discuss your concerns.  Rabbi Chezky at 412-657-8164, Bassie at 412-867-9266.  In the event that there is no answer leave a message and your all will be returned that day.

Are we obligated to give a tip or gift to our child's counselor?
Your child/ren's ounselor/s will be very appreciative if you choose to give them a gift or tip.
