Campers at Camp Gan Israel (CGI) Longmeadow experienced an exciting fun filled summer. The four-week camp on the LYA campus at 1148 Converse St., under the direction of camp directors Chanie Cohen and Faigie Wolff, offered two divisions this summer. CGI’s youngest campers’, toddlers to four year olds, enjoyed Jewish themed weeks, organized water play and outdoor activities. Weekly field trips including: Forest Park Zoo, Holyoke Children’s Museum, Pioneer Valley Gymnastics and Connecticut Trolley Museum.
The older division of camp catered to five to twelve year olds and their trips included: Interskate 91, Laser Maze, Six Flags and Westover Air Force Base.
In addition to spirited days, sports activities, trips and themed games, CGI campers participated in Create a Camp, where campers were able to create their own camp experience by choosing elective activities that they enjoyed including specialized sports, tie dying, cooking, drama, science and power point.
