The first Gvanim was held on Labor Day weekend 2012 at Camp Starlight in Starlight, PA. Originally the dream of Gabi Gabbay, the camp came to fruition after Gabi was diagnosed with leukemia due to the efforts of a team led by Ilana Vichness. The camp was held one week after Gabi's passing, with his family's blessing. Irith Shade Shemesh took over as camp director for 2013 and continued the camp with the goal of creating a family friendly camp where the next generation of Israeli dancers will meet.

The next Gvanim is scheduled for the weekend before Labor Day weekend 2018 (August 23-26, 2018).
