In Upper Gan, campers can choose to sign up for General Camp, Soccer Camp, All Sports Camp, CGI off Broadway Camp or STEM Camp. All campers pay the General Camp fee, those who select one of the other camps offered, pay an additional premium, based on which camp they choose.

GENERAL CAMP

General Camp gives 2.5 to 12-year-olds a fun, well-rounded experience unlike any other. Your child will have the unforgettable opportunity to develop skills, try new things, overcome challenges and interact within the safety of a small, supervised group of boys and girls who are the same age. Our General Camp offers that and so much more with: a close counselor-to-camper ratio within a small group structure. Caring and experienced staff who love what they do. A diverse and well-balanced program and a safe and supportive environment where children discover new skills and create lasting friendships.

INCLUSION CAMP

Campers with mild to moderate disabilities will participate in an inclusive camp program
Pre-screening application & interview
CGI gives all children an opportunity to succeed and welcomes campers with special needs who can benefit from a total inclusion experience. We have great success with children with a wide range of developmental disabilities. Our goal is for these campers to succeed in our extraordinary and supportive world amongst typical campers- just as they will when they become adults.
Campers with Special Needs are placed in groups according to age and gender along with their typical peers. Groups are supervised by an adult Group Leader and 1 or 2 high school aged counselors. Many of our campers with special needs require additional one-on-one assistance. We refer to these additional helpers as Advocates. Camp families can secure advocates in the following ways:

  • Some school districts provide advocates if it is part of the student’s summer plan.
  • Some campers qualify for aid from state agencies which provides advocates.
  • For higher functioning children with special needs, we can help identify staff who we believe will make great advocates. Parents would pay the additional cost of the advocate through the camp.
  • Some parents hire their own advocates. Often times they find people who already work with their child during the year and are very familiar with their needs.
