Gan Yisroel West in California, The camp is directed by Rabbi Shlomo and Aliza Menkes, is headed towards another amazing and inspiring summer led by our outstanding head staff:
Yisroel Weisberg – Head Counselor
Levi Raskin – Learning Director
Yisroel and Levi have quite a program prepared where campers will enjoy archery, kayaking, horseback riding, and even paintball shooting, all while staying on campus. Campers will participate in sports, crafts such as leather working and woodworking, making their own pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven. The hiking trails include a three-mile hike through the camp property. They can kick back and relax and enjoy the beautiful star-filled nights.
Campers are accommodated in rustic cabins and modern buildings and dine in the dining room and on the deck that overlooks beautiful forest terrain.
The variety of projects, trips and overnights are just a part of the big fun and the amazing activities. By inspiring the campers with twice daily learning classes, Tzivos Hashem, Mishnayos Ba’al Peh and many other programs they breathe in a love for Yiddishkeit and Chassidus that lasts a lifetime, making Gan Yisroel West perfect for a yeshiva/cheder student.
