Dear Friend, 

Camp Gan Israel in Calgary is well known for its program and devoted staff, with our sole interest placed upon giving the best care and attention to every child in camp.

Our camp is not just recreational, but also nurtures a growing awareness of Judaism while enjoying the best possible camp experience.  Therefore, we cannot afford to exclude any child due to a lack of funds.

For the past 8 years we have added a program to the camp which is the Kosher Lunch & Snack program. We provide lunches and two daily snacks to each child. The drive behind the undertaking of such a costly program ($15,000.00 for the five weeks of summer camp and over $4,000 for winter camp), was simply to assure that no single child remain hungry (either as a result of the parents not having enough time to pack a lunch or snack or because of a lack of money and food in the house).

Many children attending camp are on full or partial scholarships.

Especially with this year’s economy we must raise the money to cover the budget.

We invite you to join us this year in this great Mitzvah of helping our local community children to enjoy a local community Camp.  This will simply be appreciated by the "kinderlach" who need your help.  (All donations are tax deductible.)
