Realizing the unique challenges our children have this summer with COVID-19, Chabad has successfully envisioned and is bringing into actuality an organized and highly engaging program, that will put both SAFETY FIRST as well as properly compensate for the usual field trips, social activities and swimming the children are used to in the summer. With all this in mind, our popular Camp Gan Israel was completely transformed to be "COVID-friendly". As always, CGI will be "an amazing summer that will last a lifetime!"

Camp has already started and is in full swing, with an incredibly fun and enjoyable program, with friendly and warm counselors, all with strict social distancing and extreme sanitation measures. An option for at-home Camp is being offered as well with a new  "Gan Izzy - My Home" program, to give everyone the Camp feel this summer! Huge thank you to CGI 2020 Summer Camp Hosts Ben & Diane Docktor! For more information about the summer camp, to see pictures and updates or to register your child please click here

With the unique economical challenges facing many families in these trying times, Leonard and Faigel Shapiro have graciously come forward to help with scholarships for those families struggling to pay for their children's camp fees. With their gracious assistance, as well as of Connect First Credit Union, your donation can go even further!

Thank you for being a part of the Chabad Relief and the Children's Summer Program initiative!  We are overwhelmed to see the outpouring of help and support that our community has provided sharing our vision during this pandemic. Your donation enables us to help those who are in desperate need!

Any donation made through Connect First to Chabad's "Children's Summer Programs"  fund will be matched as follows:

  • For every dollar donated to the "Children's Summer Programs" fund, Leonard and Faigel Shapiro will match it dollar-for-dollar, up to $15,000

  • Connect First will match 50% of your donation to a max of $500 per individual donation.

For example, if you donate $50, the Shapiro's match it with $50 and Connect First provides an additional $25 dollars. Your $50 donation is now $125!

$15,000 from the community will turn into $37,500!
