Camp Gan Israel in the Poconos

Joyful Judaism is our specialty!

CKids Gan Israel Poconos offers a top-quality overnight camp experience in a beautiful setting for girls entering 3rd-8th grades, regardless of their Jewish background. Our camp provides a truly immersive experience infused with Jewish values, and we minimize social pressures by offering single-gender sessions. In our fun and nurturing environment, campers develop new skills and build meaningful friendships within a small-group setting, fostering a close-knit family environment that creates lasting moments. This 24/7 immersive experience allows children to make new Jewish friends, lasting memories, and internalize the beauty and values of Judaism. Over the past 12 years, CKids Gan Israel Poconos has welcomed over 800 Jewish girls from 25 states and 8 countries, aiming to deepen their understanding of entering adulthood as strong, self-confident teens while fostering a sense of strong Jewish identity that will impact their lives and inspire others.
