The Head Staff of Camp Gan Yisroel, Parksville NY are working vigorously to ensure that the campers, counselors, and all staff members experience the most exciting thrilling and Chasidushe summer.
As this year marks the beginning of the 60th anniversary of the camp, the staff is determined to improve and enhance all the activities and day to day affairs of the camp.
Recently, the head staff met with the Executive Director, Rabbi Avraham Shemtov, who shared words of inspiration and motivation as he expanded on the Rebbe’s ideals in creating Camp Gan Yisroel.
Rabbi Shemtov imparted and shared with staff the Rebbe’s vision for a Camp that not only effects positive changes in the children during the summer, but has a lasting impact throughout the year.
