Parent's Place 

Parent Handbook

Dress Code:

There is no dress code during camp. However, on all trip day, a CGI t-shirt and CGI "baseball" cap is mandatory. They are available for purchase prior to the start of camp. A camp waterbottle will also be available for purchase.
We suggest purchasing 2 shirts & 1 cap.

Personal Property

The Camp does not take responsibility for any personal items brought to camp.

Personal sports equipment such as baseball bats, hockey sticks, sports balls, etc will be stored by the counselor and used under staff supervision.

ABSOLUTELY NO illegal substances or weapons of any kind will be allowed on camp grounds. Camp reserves the right to conduct searches when we feel necessary.

Also, we recommend that children do NOT bring cellphones and/or ipods etc. to camp. If hey need to for any reason; the counselor will put it away until it is needed.

Safety and Accreditation

The camp is a part of the Chabad Center and is fully insured as a youth program. CGI is also in the process of being an accredited camp of the American Camping Association. As an additional precaution, some of the staff are trained in CPR and First Aid. The swimming pool is supervised at all times by certified lifeguards. When going on field trips, contact is maintained at all times with the camp office by means of mobile communication.

In case of a medical emergency, G‑d forbid, a registered nurse or doctor is available for consultation, and in the case of need, children will be brought to the nearest hospital. Parents or guardians will be contacted at the first opportunity to do so.

Security Procedures

Every counselor will be in constant communication with the main office via mobile communication.

Please call the day before if you know your child will not attend camp. We request a phone call by 8:00 a.m. if absence is unexpected.

In case of a major emergency, children will remain on campgrounds and will wait for parents to pick them up.


All medication to be administered during camp hours must be clearly marked with camper's name. A separate note containing dosage instruction and parent signature must be sent as well.

Camper Release

Parents wishing to have their child released during camp to anyone other than themselves or their designated substitute must make prior arrangements with the camp Director.

Extended Care

Extended care hours may be available. Please ask the director if you would like to use that option.

We offer Hebrew Tutoring during extended care hours for a minimal charge.

Financial Aid
Financial assistance, is available, on a first-come-first-serve basis through the children's scholarship fund. Please ask the director about how to apply for financial aid..
