Must campers wear a camp T-shirt every day? 
Yes, we require that all campers wear a Camp Gan Israel T-shirt each day. Each camper should purchase at least one T-shirt before camp begins. Since all camp staff and campers wear camp shirts, we are instantly recognizable to each other. While on field trips camp shirts distinguish our campers and staff from other visitors. While at camp, it allows our staff to recognize any visiting children, parents, etc. Camp shirts will be available for purchase before the start of camp. 

Where is the camp facility located? 
Each day pick up and drop off is at Chabad, 730 East Main St, Vacaville. 

What if my child does not want to participate in a particular activity? 
No camper will 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 Izzy 

How religious is Camp Gan Israel? 
Camp Gan Israel is a totally non-judgemental environment made up of campers from all Jewish backgrounds. An individual's level of observance is not stressed. All children enjoy a shared Jewish spirit through songs and projects. 

Can my camper bring a precious item to camp? 
We do not recommend your camper to bring jewelry, radios, DSI's, Ipods, expensive toys, etc. to camp. Camp Gan Izzy supplies everything campers may need. 

What does my camper need to bring each day? 
Campers need a bathing suit and towel brought on the the first day of camp. Will be left in camp and washed.  Please apply sunscreen at home and send a wearable canteen. 

How often does my child drink water at camp each day? 
It is the campers responsibility to bring the bottle each day filled with water. They will be instructed to drink every hour. Bottles will be refilled as needed throughout the day. 

How can I become more involved with Camp Gan Izzy? 
The camp encourages the involvement of "camp mothers" and "fathers". If you are interested, please contact us.
