CGI Detroit Finalizes Purchase of New Grounds

CGI Detroit Finalizes Purchase of New Grounds

Just in time for 5782 camp registration, CGI Detroit announced that the purchase of their new campgrounds in Tustin, Michigan has been finalized.

Just in time for 5782 camp registration, CGI Detroit announced that the purchase of their new campgrounds in Tustin, Michigan has been finalized.

“We are delighted with these developments and enthusiastic about cementing this step in the growth of Camp Gan Yisroel Detroit,” said Rabbi Moshe Shemtov, Camp director.

Just a few weeks ago with the down payment paid and the paperwork complete, the property officially became the permanent home of CGI Detroit boys’ camp. The move came just as organizers are putting the final touches to staffing and schedule arrangements ahead of registration opening later this week.

After an incredibly successful summer last year, camp organizers have decided the best way to maximize CGI Detroit’s value is to once again lead two months of girls’ camp at the Kalkaska site and two months of boys’ camp in Tustin. To allow the maximum number of girls to participate, there will be one session for elementary girls followed by a session of the popular teen camp. Boys will enjoy two sessions for both elementary boys and the Bar Mitzvah Division.

Both camps will be run in CGI Detroit’s trademark style of learning and fun in chassidishe atmosphere, following the Rebbe’s directive that summer camps are an opportunity for immersive and life-changing growth in the life of a child.

“We are eternally grateful to the donors who have partnered with us to make the down payment,” said Rabbi Levi Raichik, director of the boys camp “In their z’chus over 1,000 campers and staff will spend a summer in the chassidishe and nurturing environment for which CGI Detroit is known.”

Registration will open this Thursday, 4 Shevat / Jan 6 @ 12pm. Below is the camp schedule:
Girls camp
Elementary girls: Wednesday, July 6 / Tammuz 7 – Tuesday, August 2 / Av 5
Teen Camp: Wednesday, Aug 3 / Av 6 – Tuesday, August 23 / Av 26

Boys Camp
Session 1: Tuesday, July 5th / 6 Tammuz – Monday, August 1 / 4 Av
Session 2: Monday, August 1 / 4 Av – Wednesday, August 24 / 27 Av

CGI Detroit is Year-Round

BH

Vov Tishrei 5782

CGI Detroit is Year-Round

The campers and staff of Camp Gan Yisroel Detroit joined together over Zoom for a special Rally and Farbrengen in honor of Vov Tishrei, the Yahrzeit of the Rebbe’s mother – Rebbetzin Chanah.

The program included the 12 Pesukim, Sefer Hamitzvos, a video of the Rebbe, a special presentation from the staff and a special story from guest storyteller, Rabbi Benny Hershkowitz.

But in truth, this is not the first time the campers have had the opportunity to reconnect to their  “camp roots” after the summer was over.

“Camp Never Ends.” 

A slogan oft-repeated in summer camps as the campers head home. But is it true? 

For the campers and staff at CGI Detroit, camp is indeed a reality – all year round.

Why should the spirit of Gan Yisroel stop when camp is over?

After camp “officially” ended, Gan Yisroel Detroit’s exciting program called Gan Yisroel Year-Round, now in its third year, was launched to ensure that the chayus and excitement of camp would not fade out, even as the boys went back home.

The program includes a monthly magazine in full color filled with exciting articles and entertaining and informative stories to read, and games to play. The pages of this unique publication are chock-filled with lessons to learn, insights to gain – and all in a fun way!

These beautiful magazines are delivered to the doorstep of every single camper. Each month, a special contest is announced in the magazine which motivates the campers to get involved in the Rebbe’s Mivtzoim, as well as helping to develop an appreciation for the Rebbe’s Sichos by encouraging the boys to translate the Sicha into their own words and make it more relatable to them. 

The program also includes weekly Farbrengen voice-notes from different staff members which are posted on a WhatsApp group with the parents, along with camp memories and photos. 

This year at the banquet, every single camper was given a one of a kind “Gan Yisroel Calendar” with a daily checklist and information on all of the special days on the Chabad calendar throughout the year. A special incentive program was set up for all the campers who fill out the daily checklist and send it in to the Gan Yisroel Year-Round team.

These programs not only remind the kids of the summer and strengthen the lessons they took home with them, but also encourages them throughout the year to focus in class and grow in all aspects of Avodas Hashem.

Is there any better way than this to continue living and growing with the spirit of Gan Yisroel all year round? 

All of this was made possible by the devoted staff of Gan Yisroel Detroit and especially by the Gan Yisroel Launchers; Avi Katz and Shea Shmotkin, as well as, the Head Staff; Mendel Azimov, Levi Katz and Levi Shemtov WB.

“The Launchers” are hard at work planning an entire year of programs and events for the campers of Gan Yisroel!

The Gan Yisroel Year-Round team wishes to show appreciation to Rabbi Moshe Shemtov and the entire administration of the camp for encouraging them to create and manage this beautiful program and hopes that the program can continue for many years to come.
