Our Divisions

Each of our summer programs are tailored to be age appropriate and flexible to serve the needs of each child. With each new division, children will encounter new adventures, excitement, and challenges, all built on the CGI hallmarks of safety, fun, and unconditional love.

Main Division

Ages 6-9
 Campers in our main division  thrive in the positive Jewish atmosphere and spirit unique to “Gan Izzy”. Our bunks are led by qualified counselors who are committed to the safety and fun of all campers. Our main division features a  full daily program with bi-weekly trips and specialty activities like Cooking, Sports, Arts and Crafts, and much more. In addition, swimming takes place twice a week under the careful supervision of certified lifeguards.

Pioneers Division

Ages 10-11
 For the budding tweens, the main division activities are spiced up with extra programs, such as team building activities, exciting overnights, additional trips, and of course the campers leave camp with the extraordinary warmth and friendships that are a natural result of a summer at CGI. The pioneer program  is led by our highly qualified and trained counselors who are completely devoted and dedicated to giving their campers the summer of a lifetime. They are leaders who are excited  to impart the timeless values of our heritage and tradition in a way that the campers are able to learn and appreciate them and most importantly, enjoy and take pride in the fact that they are the next link in Jewish History.

The Gan Israel registration system is powered by Ultra Camp.

We are sure that you will easily familiarize yourself with the system and enjoy all of its benefits.

Please take a minute to read these helpful pointers about our new system before you register.

  1. As soon as you are redirected, you will be prompted to create an account. Once your account is created the basic information will be stored in the system and you will simply need to add children to your account. The information will be stored in the system for future years.

  2. Once your children who are attending camp are added to your account you can go to the reservations page and sign them up for camp.

  3. The system will automatically calculate the price (prices can be viewed here). The base price for each week will show as $257, and the appropriate discounts will automatically be applied. At checkout all discounts will show.

  4. There is a required health form for each child. We recommend that you fill it out with the registration, but you do have the option of logging back into your account and doing it at a later time.

  5. A $200 deposit is required at registration. In addition, while full payment is not required at registration, the system will prompt you to set up a payment plan for your tuition balance.

    Click here and you will be redirected to the registration page. You are about to register for the Northbrook, IL location.
