Chabad Sparks 

Who are we?

Chabad Sparks is a new Chabad Youth group designed specifically to target the wider Melbourne community.  The movement is called "Sparks" because its core aim is to reveal the G‑dly Spark within every Jewish youth.  Chabad Sparks is a division of Chabad Youth and an initiative of the Yeshivah Centre. 

Our Goals:

Goal One:  A Youth Movement

A movement designed to give youth a true sense of religious Jewish belonging.  Chabad Sparks connects with Jewish Youth in Melbourne's shules and schools.  Our fun activities keep youth involved in religious activity in a creative and diverse way.  We also place a strong emphasis on youth empowerment and leadership.

Our movement offers total continuity for children from prep age until Year 12.

Gan Yisroel

Gan Israel is part of the largest and fastest growing network of Jewish camps in the world. Gan Israel enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trendsetter with innovative ideas, creative programs and new activities. 

“No one puts more care into the care of your child.”

Gan Israel is much more than a physical break from the school routine and summer activities. It’s a comprehensive program designed to strengthen the body and soul. It provides your child with a rich and wholesome winter vacation of fun and excitement along with friendship and meaningful educational experiences. 


Child development is the most significant ingredient in a healthy camp experience. This is why our staff is the real secret to our success. Our experienced counselors are known for their personal warmth and ability to care for each child as an individual. Many staff members return year after year, lending experience and continuity to all programs. Each counselor is a role model for our children, promising them friendship which will last forever! Their love for the children is surpassed only by the children’s love for them.

Gan Israel campers are imbued with a deep sense of pride in their Jewish heritage and a love for the land of Israel. Weekly Judaic themes are taught through exciting activities, stories, songs, games and contests, which are part of the unique Gan Israel experience. Combined with group discussions and educational programs, these events bring to life the beauty and values of our tradition.  

Trips On The Go 
Gan Izzy's summer camp “Trip Days”, which are well known, are geared to the children’s interests and are scheduled a few times a week.  All trips are run by qualified and professionally trained instructors.
