Don’t take our word for it…
Chabad’s camp is truly a special place. My son, who’s now 4, started there when he was 2 and we immediately felt like part of the family. Esti and the teachers are incredibly warm, there are tons of exciting events and trips, and not a day goes by when there isn’t something new and amazing going on! When my second, my daughter, started there last summer she jumped on the bus and didn’t look back! The families in the camp are warm, friendly, and down to earth. We’re so grateful to have found Chabad – the camp is a great transition into school and a wonderful early camp experience.
My kids had the best time at Berkowitz Gan Israel! Each morning they were excited to go and they came home with the biggest smiles every afternoon. Their days were filled with a variety of activities that kept them active, interested and engaged. There is something so special about the atmosphere at Gan Israel. My kids are constantly talking about the great times that they had and the amazing friendships that they made there.
I cannot wait to send my son to his second summer at BGI Day Camp. Last summer he woke up every morning asking to go to camp. I was nervous because of the separation, but very quickly Chabad became his second home. He made great friends with the kids in his group as well as with the older kids. He learned so much from counting to 10, listening to directions and new songs. He loved riding the bus for field trips and water play. Every day was an adventure, from meeting the local firemen to having parades down the halls. We love the warm and nurturing environment and knew we found the right place for us. Looking forward to his baby sister joining him next summer!
