Welcome to Camp Gan Israel of The Woodlands. CGI is part of the largest network of Jewish Camping in the world. Each year, from Alaska to Singapore and hundreds of points in between, more than 190,000 children experience the winter camp of a lifetime at CGI. 

Camp Gan Israel is dedicated to enriching the lives of children from diverse Jewish backgrounds and affiliations through a stimulating camping experience.

“No one puts more care into the care of your child.”

Gan Israel is much more than a physical break from the school routine. It’s a comprehensive program designed to strengthen the body and soul. It provides your child with a rich and wholesome summer vacation of fun and excitement, along with friendship and meaningful educational experiences.


Child development is the most significant ingredient in a healthy camp experience. This is why our staff is the real secret to our success. Our experienced counselors are known for their personal warmth and ability to care for each child as an individual. Each counselor is a role model for our children, promising them friendship which will last forever! Their love for the children is surpassed only by the children’s love for them.

Gan Israel campers are imbued with a deep sense of pride in their Jewish heritage and a love of the Land of Israel. Daily Judaic themes are taught through exciting activities, stories, songs, games and contests, which are part of the unique Gan Israel experience. Combined with group discussions and educational programs, these events bring to life the beauty and values of our tradition.
