Dear Families,

We are so pleased to share that Camp Gan Izzy-Chattanooga will be opening the Main Camp and Kiddie Camp!

As the safety of our campers, their families and the staff, is of our highest priority, the CGI program has been adjusted and modified to follow the most current Covid-19 summer camp guidelines set forth by the CDC, the state of Tennessee  and in consultation with local health professionals.

With everyone following all the necessary proactive precautions, we are confident that your child(ren) can be provided with an amazing, exciting and fun filled summer, with all the love, care and wonderful Camp Gan Izzy spirit they have come to know! A new, updated and comprehensive Parent Handbook, with all the updated information and details, will be sent after registration.

Below are some of the important policies, changes and information that you need to be aware of:

*The camp dates remain the same: July 13- July 24th

*A certified, professional chef will be on site to prepare kosher hot lunches and snacks following all Covid-19 rules and regulations.

*All camp staff are required to take Covid-19 tests before the start of camp.

*All campers and staff will have their temperatures taken each morning at drop off. 

*All camp staff will be trained on appropriate cleaning, disinfection, hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette. 

 *Our full-time, onsite custodian will be sanitizing the building thoroughly throughout the day, including door handles, bathrooms, etc. 

*The campers will be in small groups of 10 campers or less and each group will remain with their own counselors at all times, while social distancing from other groups.

 **The majority of activities will take place outdoors. Activities will include sports instructors, art using all mediums in our new Art Barn, shows, water activities, karate, baking, and JAM (Judaism through Art and Movement). A full updated calendar of events will be available soon.

*Due to the new guidelines, we are limiting the amount of campers that we will be accepting. The early bird special will be extended through June 15. If you have any questions  please reach out to us.

We are looking forward to a great summer!
