Camp Gan Israel of Riverdale prides itself on its exceptional staff. All staff come with prior camp experience and a desire to work with kids. Bunk sizes are kept small and well staffed. Our camp maintains a low staff-camper ratio (one counselor to six campers). Each special class is run by professional instructors.

The real secret to our success lies in our outstanding staff. Hand-picked from experienced counselors around the world, Gan Israel counselors are known for their warmth and ability to understand, relate to, and care for every child individually. As positive role models for your child, they will cultivate friendships that last forever. Their devotion to your child’s wellbeing and accomplishments is reciprocated by the children’s love for them.

We take great pride in our commitment to recruiting, training and keeping the highest quality staff in the camping profession. Over the years, Camp Gan Israel of Riverdale has always been dedicated to small groups with exceptional staff supervision. This ensures the best possible care, instruction and supervision for our campers. Our counselors are highly trained, dedicated, and experienced, and all are fully trained in First Aid and CPR.
