Monday: CGl Goes Frozen! With a crackle and a pop Camp Gan Izzy hit it off with Frozen day. Grand Gan went on a cold trip ice skating! Back at camp, we baked delicious cookies that looked like real snowballs after we rolled them in snowy confectioners’ sugar! Then Gan Israel campers really went frozen with some wacky and wild ice activities. We found hidden treasures in frozen ice, tie dyed Mushky's shirt with ice paint and unraveled frozen Gan Israel shirts! What fun!  Smiling Gan Israel campers were off to swimming to end off our Marvelous Monday!

Tuesday: Rain or shine, Gan Israel was off to an awesome day at Wet n' Wild! We slipped and flew down the slides, got swept up with the waves at the wave pool and relaxed at the lazy river.
