Always looking to enhance the superb quality of the overnight camp experience for its hundreds of campers, CGI Poconos is proud to announce that Mrs. Dini Druk, who has previously worked at CGI Poconos as the Program Director, Assistant Director, and Director during the past few summers, will be taking on a new responsibility during the off-season to focus on staffing & programming.
Since its founding 11 years ago, Camp Gan Israel Poconos has become the leading force in overnight camping for Jewish girls that don’t receive a comprehensive Jewish education, with over 175 Shluchim referring the camp to its over 700 alumni campers from around the world.
Under the leadership of Directors Gershon and Devorah Sandler, CGI Poconos has become synonymous with professional, fun, and inspiring summer camp experiences. In honor of celebrating its “Bas Mitzvah” anniversary, 12 years of overnight camp, it is now expanding its leadership to further spur its growth.
In her new role, Dini will focus on program and curriculum development, greatly enhancing the progression of the camp program and overseeing the development of a brand new, comprehensive curriculum uniquely designed for campers of CGI Poconos. The new curriculum will be designed to teach and inspire each girl based on their specific level of observance in yiddishkeit and geared towards each specific division in camp.
“The objective of my new role is to further inspire and uplift the girls in camp with a love and passion for Yiddishkeit,” says Mrs. Druk. “I am excited to be a part of this amazing growth and I look forward to what the future will bring!” In addition to program development, she will focus on growing the summer leadership staff to better enhance the camper experience.
“Over the past few years, we have continuously been growing and improving the camp,” Said Rabbi Moshe Browd, Director of Growth & Operations. “From large facility renovations to hiring additional staff, but this next step will IyH have a major impact on the service we will be able to provide our camp families and the shluchim that refer them.”
