The Jewish Experience for the Modern Child

The Jewish Experience for the Modern Child

If you are looking for a wonderful, loving, and fabulous Jewish day camp, you've come to the right place!

Welcome to Gan Israel Day Camp - Portland, part of the largest and fastest growing network of Jewish camps in the world. Gan Israel camps enjoy a well-earned reputation as a trendsetter with innovative ideas, creative programs and new activities being introduced continuously. Children who span the entire spectrum of the Portland Jewish community await Gan Israel’s return all year long!

Gan Israel Day Camp is much more than a break from the school routine and winter activities. It is an experience in which children learn the importance of caring, sharing, tolerance, patience and working with others. Our program is designed to provide your child with the experience of a lifetime and to bring out the best in each child’s character and personality in a warm and spirited atmosphere.

At Gan Israel  we offer children of all backgrounds a structured opportunity for growth. Our program is designed for campers to promote independence and self-confidence all while making new friends and learning exciting new skills. We strive to encourage campers to participate, to try their best, express themselves, make new friends, and to be proud of their Jewish identity.

We believe that strong morals and values enrich children’s lives. Our counselors model it-our campers live it! Come join the Gan Israel family and see for yourself what it’s all about!

Gan Israel has been providing a unique Jewish summer camp experience to our campers and families since 1997.
