About Us

Welcome to Berkowitz Gan Israel Day Camp, where safety, fun, and learning go hand-in-hand! We are caring and intimate, and our goal is to create a safe, happy, and secure environment for your child throughout his/her camp experience. Our professional staff are warm and loving, cultivating a sense of security for our very young children.

I invite your family to join us for a fun-filled summer program, designed to give your child the best early camp experience possible, in a safe and warm environment of Jewish values and culture.

I am available for a private tour of our facility and for any questions that you may have. I look forward to speaking with you soon!
