Camp Gan Israel Chamah in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn recently completed its 7 week Day Camp.
The Camp was founded in 1999 by Rabbi Efraim and Chanie Zaltzman – directors of Chabad of Kingsborough, and has been running annually since then.
Children come from many parts of Brooklyn to participate, especially from the greater Brighton Beach area. 98 children enjoyed the camp this year.
The camp was co – sponsored by the international organization Chamah and by Chabad of Kingsborough.
Of the many inspiring stories, one counselor reported having 13 children in his bunk- three of whom came with Yarmulka and Tzitzis the firs day. As camp was drawing to an end, all the campers in his bunk were wearing a Yarmulka and Tzitzis./
Rabbi and Mrs. Zaltzman thanked all the dedicated staff who made the camp a smashing success.
