Greenwich first responders – including the Greenwich Fire Department, Police Department and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) – visited Camp Gan Israel for a “Touch A Truck” event last week to teach campers all about safety and what it takes to be a part of an emergency team that helps protect our communities. It was just another one of the many Camp Gan Israel “training programs” teaching Connecticut’s future leaders how to “give back” to their communities and support its vital institutions. This year, Camp Gan Israel campers visited the elderly in local nursing homes, raised awareness about the homeless, and raised funds to help disabled children attend camp and fight childhood cancer.
