The buzz is back as Camp Gan Israel Florida Overnight gears up for another fantastic summer, CGI Florida style. What makes CGI Florida so different from all the other overnight camps? It’s all in the details.

Accommodations: All facilities are equipped with central air conditioning and campers are housed in luxurious bungalows that include a kitchen and fully-furnished living room.

The spacious shul and famous “shteeble” recreation room are fully equipped and carpeted. The cafeteria features such “little extras” as a fully stocked and serviced salad bar, juice bar and cereal bar.

Meals: All meals are prepared by Chef Nissan. The menu appeals to parents and children alike.

Learning Program: Original and Innovating learning curriculum geared toward the educational and spiritual needs and skills of the campers. Curricula topics from past years include: Yiddish Language, the 12 Pesukim, the Rebbe’s Mivtzoim in Halacha, Geulah Facts, and Davening with Pirush HaMilos. Many of the lessons are supported with innovative “hands-on” projects and weekly game shows.

Grounds and Activities: Tranquil lakes and tame wildlife form nature’s backdrop. Additional amenities include: outdoor Olympic-size swimming pool, basketball court, miniature golf-course, paved paths, biking trails, and professional-grade fields for all sports and activities, including beach volleyball – plus a 5,000 square foot air-conditioned indoor gym and state-of-the-art game room

The grounds are cared for by an independent professional licensed company, ensuring that everything is safe and properly maintained.

Trips and Outings: The camp is located a quick 30-minute drive to Florida’s major attractions, so campers enjoy many outings and field trips throughout the summer.

Campers: The prevailing culture of CGI Florida is legendary, imbued with the spirit of Ahavas Yisrael. Camp nurtures a warm chassidic and friendly atmosphere, one where every camper knows he counts and is cared for by staff and fellow campers alike.

Extra Curricular: For the past five years CGI Florida has focused and invested in many of innovative and exciting extra-curricular programs. They include:

*A Mishnayos Be’al (MBP) program that is the most anticipated part of camp. Campers grow and excel in their memorization of Torah, Mishnayos and Tanya in an exciting and user-friendly manner. A handbook with material in both Hebrew and English with general Jewish knowledge is available. Campers use the points they have earned over the summer to order seforim from an MBP Seforim Catalogue. The program culminates in a grand MBP Ceremony, which honors each camper forhis achievements. A full length article of the camp’s most recent celebration can be found online at http://www.collive.com/show_news.rtx?id=15913&alias=cgi-florida-presents-37-000-lines.

* A customized Tzivos Hashem program encompassing every camper’s daily experience, encouraging him to develop in all areas of life. Campers are challenged with daily and weekly missions and are promoted in rank as they tackle new responsibilities and commitments. Children leave camp motivated to continue in their growth beyond the summer months.

* A world-acclaimed “Rebbe-Card System” with carefully chosen themes provides new information and chassidishe knowledge. Many of the sets are used by other camps and schools around the world.

* A set of carefully chosen programs are geared to actualize talent and develop responsible leadership. These include: Ach Katan programs and games, themed carnivals run by campers, Bunk War competition, Interactive Game Shows, Creative Exhibitions, Visiting Day Choir – all augmented by the “staple diet” of CGI activities and projects.

Information & Registration: Camp Gan Israel Florida is open to boys ages 8-13. The 6-week summer program operates from July 2to August 11, with options to register for one or two sessions.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.
