Chabad Lubavitch UK's Flagship Overnight Camp for Girls

For over 50 years, CGI Girls UK, Chabad Lubavitch UK's flagship Overnight Camp for Girls, has provided thousands of girls with a joy-filled and uplifting summer experience.


Camp Gan Israel, named for the founder of Chassidism Rabbi Yisrael Baal Shem Tov, was first established in the USA in the mid-1950s with the direct involvement and guidance of the Lubavitcher Rebbe..
To-date, many hundreds of day camps and overnight camps bearing this name, operate all over the world.

At CGI Girls UK, campers are cared for by a top-notch team of enthusiastic and dedicated staff, under the leadership of Rabbi Nissan Dovid & Sarah Dubov (directors of Chabad of South London) and Rabbi Zalman & Shterna Lewis (directors of Chabad at South East Coast Universities), together with Rabbi Peretz & Chavi Chein (directors of Chai Network, Chabad of Cheadle, South Manchester).


Our camp kitchen provides daily delicious and nutritious in-house, freshly cooked meals, lovingly prepared by Mrs Chein and her hard-working kitchen-staff team.


A typical day at CGI is never typical.
Each day's programme is carefully crafted, with a jam-packed schedule, nourishing and refreshing to both body and soul.
At CGI, the girls will discover a joyful and engaging Yiddishkeit that they can truly love, with inspiring daily Davening, captivating and informative learning classes and Farbrengens.
In addition to the typical camp sports, crafts and games, a summer at CGI includes in-house adventure activities, such as abseiling, high ropes, zipwire, coasteering and more, provided by fully trained and qualified on-site staff.
