How does my camper find a lost item?
 
Please mark all belongings with your camper's name and bunk. Lost & Found items will be held in the office.

How do I arrange to pick up my camper during the camp day? 
If you have to pick up your camper during the day, please notify our office. Once we are aware of your arrival time, we can arrange to have your camper ready for you.

What if my child does not want to participate in a particular activity? 
Campers will not be forced to participate in any activity. However, we do urge campers to try all activities and take advantage of the complete program offered at Gan Izzy Day Camp.

Can my camper bring a precious item to camp? 
Gan Izzy Day Camp supplies everything campers need for the camp day. Precious items may get lost or broken and we do discourage bringing them to camp.

What does my camper need to bring each day? 
Campers need to bring swim gear on swim days. We supply all sports and safety equipment.

How can I speak with my child's counselor? 
A call to the camp office will answer most questions. Since counselors are constantly supervising groups and activities, messages will be taken at the camp office. Please leave your name and evening phone number and the counselor will return your call as soon as possible.

How can I speak with a Camp Director? 
Rabbi Berry and Nechama are available to answer your questions and discuss your concerns. Rabbi Berry at 425-985-7639, Nechama at 425-985-8996. In the event that there is no answer leave a message and your all will be returned that day. (Text Messages and Emails will be answered as well, However, for immediate reply please call).

What Camp shall I register my child who is entering Kindergarten?

If your child is entering K next year, they can join the regular Gan Izzy program or enroll in the Preschool Program. It is a decision based on each individual child’s readiness.

If you feel that your child can handle a full Day Field Trip without any resting time and lots of stimulation then they might be ready for the Gan Izzy Program. Also note that at Gan Izzy your child will be transported in the regular school bus without a booster or car seat, whereas at Preschool camp children are transported to field trips in a smaller school bus with built in 3 point harness seats. You can call Nechama to discuss it with her and help you determine what would be the best fit for your child.

Where does swimming occur?

Children swim at Beaver Lake. We have our own lifeguard on duty as well as our supervising counselors who undergo special training for swimming duties. All children are required to take a swim test; those who are not fully independent swimmers (as determined by the lifeguard) swim with lifejackets (provided by parents). Lifejackets can be stored at camp for the duration of your child’s attendance; thus your child does not have to schlep or lose it.

On Rainy days we sometimes take the children to Julius Boehms, have an alternate activity or an impromptu short field trip.
