Order Personalized Labels for your Campers 

 The Gan Israel Staff will make every effort to keep campers' belongings safe and in good condition; however, we are not liable for broken or lost items. We cannot guarantee the return of unlabeled items. All unlabeled items will become camp property if not claimed by the time campers leave.


We are excited to announce a new service we are promoting in 2018 to help you easily purchase the items on your Gan Israel packing list.
