Camp Gan Israel, the Chabad Camping Network

Lubavitch HQ, NY

Chabad Lubavitch operates the largest Jewish camping network in the world, with the participation of hundreds of thousands of children.

Since 1956, day camps, overnight camps and winter camps attract Jewish children, the majority of which come from unaffiliated homes. Chabad believes that camps should be a fun and safe environment providing educational opportunities to teach children the values of sharing, tolerance, and sportsmanship. Innovative programming includes exposing campers to positive Jewish experiences for children of all levelsof knowledge.  At Gan Israel there are also extraordinary programs to aid children with special needs.

Here's a collection of some Gan Israel's in action.
