How are campers assigned to bunks?
Campers are placed in bunks that are divided by grade. The beginning of camp is filled with various icebreakers and team building exercises to help the campers get to know their fellow bunkmates and learn how to live together. The campers also have the opportunity to spend time with friends who are not in their bunk during various group activities, electives, in their rest hour, and on trips.

What does a typical day look like?
The campers are woken up in the morning and begin the day with line up followed by a hearty breakfast. They will then gather for morning prayers that will be guided by the dedicated staff to ensure that campers of every background can follow along. Prayers will be followed by different activities such as swimming, sports, art and more! After enjoying other activities that will vary by the day, the campers will sit down to a nutritious lunch. Immediately following lunch will be electives that the campers will get to choose to their preference. All the fun will be followed by an amazing dinner. The day will conclude with exciting night activities and then lights out. Time to rest up for the exciting day ahead!

How will my child get to camp?
Free bussing will be provided to and from our partners at Camp Gan Israel Milwaukee. 

Children coming from out of state can fly into General Mitchell Airport where we will provide pick up and drop off. 

How is the food in camp?
There is a full time chef on ground who will provide delicious, healthy, and fresh meals for your children in addition to scrumptious snacks and treats.
There are plenty of snacks and beverages provided throughout the day, and all of our food and snacks are exclusively Kosher.

How can I contact my child during camp?
Once camp begins, you will be able to send your child an email message through our Campergram system. Campergrams are distributed daily. This is the only method of sending an email to your camper. Messages sent to any other email address will not be distributed.

Mail received after camp ends will not be forwarded.

Campers may not receive nor place calls from the office phone. Campers may not use staff member’s cell phones. If you need to contact your camper please make an arrangement with our camp director.

How does laundry work?
Please make sure to pack enough clothing for the entire summer and reference our recommended packing list. Any questions please reach out to our camp director.

What is camp’s cell phone and electronics policy?
Ckids Gan Israel Wisconsin adheres to a strict no cell phone and electronics policy. Any device with viewing and internet capability. This includes, but is not limited to an mp3 player, iPod, iPad, DS, PSP, laptop, or cell phone. If found, they will be confiscated, and your child may be sent home from camp. We believe that the campers benefit immensely from an immersive camp experience without any distractions.

What shouldn’t my son bring to camp?
There is a recommended packing list available on the website. We strongly discourage parents from sending any pricey clothing items. Camp will not be responsible for any personal belongings that are lost or broken.

Do I need to send extra spending money?
Campers may want to bring a small amount of spending money for field trips. We recommend putting spending money in a sealed envelope to be given to your child’s counselor on the first day of camp. Spending money should not exceed $30.

Will I be able to visit my child during camp?
As of now, we are not having visiting day in camp, due to the duration of camp. No visitors will be allowed on the campsite at any time. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Do you upload pictures daily of campers?
Yes! Pictures of the day’s activities will be updated to the camp website every day. Please login to your parent portal for access to all pictures.
