Community Imprint Project:
Once a week our campers reflect on our responsibility to those around us and participate in an interactive mitzvah project to benefit those in need around us. It is never too young to begin taking action for what matters most – loving and caring for one another!
A professional sports instructor introduces our campers to a range of sports all while having fun and bolstering their sportsmanship. Campers should wear appropriate gym shoes on sports days.
Campers will have a swimming activity with our certified lifeguard 2-3 times a week. Campers that do not wish to swim will be offered an alternative fun activity.
Each camper’s artistic side shines at our weekly guided art session. Using authentic art materials, our campers are directed in an expressive art session as they try something new and exercise their creativity.
Challah Baking & Shabbat Bash:
Every Friday, Gan Izzy gets into the spirit of Shabbat at our signature Shabbat Bash as we sing songs, drink grape juice and play a Shabbat themed game. Campers will also mix, knead and shape their very own challahs every Friday!
