Watch What These Girls Know

You will be amazed by the candid comments that campers at Camp Gan Israel Florida - girls division made when asked on camera.

Camp Gan Israel of Florida - Girls has gotten off to a truly amazing start this summer. Color war ended with a total of 3,554 lines of Tanya recited in 1 hour, and together with a record breaking amount of 85 campers attending cocoa club daily, the Chayus for Chasidishkeit is in the air.

The girls are learning the meaning of Davening and Hachana L'Tefilah each morning, as well as a nightly "Rebbe Time", "Reflection Time (a 1 min. Rebbe video and Cheshbon Hanefesh daily). The innovative Tzivos Hashem Program helps create a wonderful level of excitement as the girls are ready and eager to learn each morning.

The goal at our camp is to make everyone feel at home and comfortable. The campers needs are always a priority. We make sure that each and every girl is taken care of and happy. We do whatever necessary to make that happen," said Executive Director Rabbi Yosef Y. Biston.

Camp Director Mrs. Liba Andrusier said, "CGI Florida is known for its perfect blend of Chassidishkeit and fun giving a chance for each girl to shine in so many different ways. We are a family camp, where every individual is noticed and cared about. The staff has created an exceptional experience for the campers with their dedication, devotion and positive energy 24-7."

The grounds boast beautiful, grassy areas with stunning scenery, air conditioned bunk houses and refrigerators in each room. CGI Florida is praised for it's exceptionally nutritious and tasty meals made by Chef Nissan Pewzner. There is a salad and pasta bar available at each meal.

Night activity is another highlight of camp with themes and props brought to pump up the excitement such as a fire-engine squirting water for Wacky Water Wednesday and a Glow in the Dark dance party. Runaways and trips galore is just another reason to love CGI Florida.

The staff in CGI Florida is greatly appreciated with trips, a counselor's lounge that is fully stocked with food, nosh, fruits, coffee and more, as well as nightly activities and Farbrengens.

"The activities are so much fun and the food is so yummy! Also, the counselors are so nice – all of them! And the beds are SOOO comfortable," said 8-year-old Sara Batya Lipskar, Bal Harbour, FL, camper of Bunk Alef.

"Gan Yisroel Florida, my home away from home. A staff that loves, a staff that truly cares, bringing excitement, bringing warmth, to every single camper. Gan Yisroel Florida, my inspiration, my family," said 13-year-old Mirel Bryski of Agoura Hills, CA from Bunk Tes.
