Camp Gan Israel
fun forever!
Welcome to Gan Israel: St. Johns’ Ultimate Jewish Summer Camp Experience !

Our warm and spirited counselors fill the Gan Israel days to the brim with exciting trips and activities.  Most importantly, they’ll keep everyone on their toes until they’re happily exhausted at the end of each day.

There are soccer and drama camps, science, and ballet camps, and then there’s Gan Israel - A 2 WEEK JEWISH SPECIALTY CAMP  for children ages 3 through 12.


When children connect to their Jewishness while having an awesome time with their friends, they create happy, healthy Jewish memories that will last a lifetime.

For the last 3 summers, Gan Israel rocked the city with its enriching Jewish program: fantastic day trips, art projects and a spirited staff - plus a bunch of Jewish kids who were begging for camp to go on forever.
