 "Camp Gan Israel Chicago is a very positive and wonderful experience, where my sons have an unbelievable time. They learn new things, make friends, play games ( knock hockey) in an all loving,  wholesome and Jewish environment. The staff is very professional and left a lasting impression on my sons. This year CGI went beyond the call of duty and made camp happen against all odds. Thank you Camp Gan Israel Chicago"

 "Ever since I was a child, I loved CGI! I enjoyed the warmth of the staff, the vibrant environment, the meaningful moments and the everlasting memories. Undoubtedly, I know that this is the best place I could send my children to have a most wonderful summer experience. They meet new friends, gain new skills, and enjoy every minute of the packed schedule. I feel so fortunate that those memories I have from CGI, my children can now relive through their own rich experience."

"My kids have been attending winter and summer CGI sessions for several years. This camp is the best. The staff is caring and amazing! In recognizing the importance of a summer camp experience, this year CGI truly went above and beyond in providing a safe summer camp experience for the kids. My kids always come home from camp super happy, eager to return the next day, with a sense of fulfillment and heightened awareness of derech eretz! Look no further."

Thank you CGI for five summers of AWESOME!!!"

"The Rabbi, his wife and camp staff were amazing with my son who has behavior challenges, providing him with a great summer experience!"


"My daughter attended Camp Gan Israel for many years and is always excited to go back. She loves personalized attention that fits her interests and needs. We love the flexibility of schedules, activities, lunches and transportation options. Compared to all the other camps in the area, CGI can work with each family's schedule and needs. We were able to choose the weeks and days that work for us. Same goes for pick ups, drop offs, transportation and lunches. The cost of the camp is lower that most other camps, especially if you choose to register early."

"My children very much enjoyed going to camp Gan Israel! They loved the various outings, swimming, challah baking, and Torah that Camp Gan Israel offers. Not to mention, they had amazing camp counselors who got to know them and truly cared about their safety and wellbeing! This camp is unique (so many fun outings), engaging, and very well priced! We did a lot of research to find the best camp for our kids before making our decision. We are so happy that we chose Camp Gan Israel and can't see our family going anywhere else!"


-Carly Swartz-Humes, Highland Park


"My son attended CGI summer of 2019 as a first time camper and had a blast! He loved the field trips and his counselors. CGI provides a fun and safe summer experience. He’s still talking about it! Can’t wait for next summer when his little brother joins him at CGI. Highly recommend!"

"CGI is an amazing gem! As a mother of 4 kids, we've tried other camps in the area. However, kids absolutely love the daily adventures and swimming of CGI and have been avid fans of CGI for the last 3 years! As a parent, I also very much appreciate the nurturing care CGI staff offers not only to kids, but to parents as well. For example, I had to urgently fly overseas for a meeting. CGI smoothly arranged for transportation for the kids, and then texted me when kids arrived and departed the camp. Sitting in London, I felt my kids were under a very good care while I was away."
