The last week of the calendar year is usually a very quiet one for Jewish children, except for those who attended the Gan Israel winter camp in Great Neck, Long Island.
During the smashing week, with the help of very capable Bochurim from 770, over 50 Jewish children k"ah enjoyed a fun filled learning experience, along with trips to ice skating, rock climbing, swimming, lazer tag, snow tubing and sports, while learning about Brochos, Kashrus, and Shabbos through sports, arts and crafts, baking, games and songs.
Camp ended on Tuesday with a very lively presentation by the campers for their parents, who were moved by the amount the children learned in such a short time. Many children were heard wondering aloud why camp couldn't be longer.
Rabbi Geisinsky, director of Chabad of Great Neck, was very happy with the camp commenting that it was the best camp since he moved out on Shlichus.
