About Camp Gan Israel

Welcome to Camp Gan Izzy of the Foothills. CGI Grass Valley is part of the largest network of Jewish Camping in the world. Each summer, from Alaska to Singapore and hundreds of points in between, more than 200,000 children experience the summer of a lifetime at CGI.  From preschoolers to our Junior high campers, all will enjoy a wide range of activities and field trips in a warm, vivacious Jewish atmosphere. 

CGI is much more than a break from the school routine and winter activities. It is a comprehensive program, designed to strengthen the body and soul. We provide your child with a rich and wholesome week of fun and excitement along with friendship and meaningful educational experiences. 

Camp Gan Izzy's outstanding program was put together with input from both parents and campers. Our campers are challenged with exposure to a wide variety of sports; stimulated with Jewish themed art, songs, baking and drama; and inspired with a sense of Jewish pride and understanding. These are only some of the many benefits your child will enjoy. 

CGI of the Foothills is directed by Mrs. Chyena Yusewitz and it runs for two week, with a trip almost every day.  It is co-sponsored by Chabad of Grass Valley and the CGI Scholarship Fund.
