The wearing of a CGI cap (& t-shirt on trip days) is mandatory and will be available for purchase prior to the start of camp, together with the baseball cap. We suggest purchasing 2-3 shirts.
The Camp does not take responsibility for any personal items brought to camp.
Personal sports equipment such as baseball bats, hockey sticks, sports balls, etc will be stored by the counselor and used under staff supervision.
ABSOLUTELY NO illegal substances or weapons of any kind will be allowed on camp grounds. Camp reserves the right to conduct searches when we feel necessary.
Safety and Accreditation
CGI is in the process of being accredited by the American Camping Association. As an additional precaution, all counselors are trained in CPR and First Aid. The swimming pool is supervised at all times by certified lifeguards. When going on field trips, contact is maintained at all times with the camp office by means of mobile communication.
In case of a medical emergency, G-d forbid, a staff member trained in First Aid/CPR is always with the campers. Family doctors (listed on the registration papers) and parents or guardians will be contacted immediately.
A security staff member will be on the camp site all day.
Please call the day before if you know your child will not attend camp. We request a phone call by 8:00 a.m. if absence is unexpected.
In case of a major emergency, children will remain on campgrounds and will wait for parents to pick them up.
The head counselor will be responsible for all health care and for administering medications. All medication to be administered during camp hours must be clearly marked with camper's name. A separate note containing dosage instruction and parent signature must be sent as well.
Parent notification of Medical illness or injury:
All minor aches, pains, insect bites cuts, scrapes and bruises will be dealt with appropriately by camp staff. If a situation arises, where a child is seriously injured or feels ill, parents will be contacted immediately, by phone.
Parents wishing to have their child released during camp to anyone other than themselves or their designated substitute must make prior arrangements with the camp Director.
Camper Pick-up and Drop-off
Parents or guardians driving onto camp grounds should drive slowly keeping to a 5 mile mph speed limit. Please drive and park in designated marked areas only, since vehicles are not permitted anywhere else on camp property. Campers should be dropped off at the greeting area, where a staff member will be signing them in.
When arriving late, please walk your child into the building and over to a staff member.
Please drive in one direction, so as not to confuse any pedestrians. When leaving please follow the circular drive-through path and loop around to the exit onto Hempel Avenue. Please be extra careful to stay on the dirt road and be vigilant as you go around the bend which is near to the pool area, in case there are children coming back from swimming.
Please make sure to sign the release form, with the supervisor, when coming and leaving camp with your child.
Extended care hours and financial assistance, based on need, are available.
We offer Hebrew Tutoring during extended care hours.
No Smoking on CGI grounds
Please be advised that our policy is that there is no smoking on camp grounds.
