Staying Connected With GFC After Session Fun!

Posted on June 29th, 2020

 

These last three weeks have gone by in the blink of an eye! Thank you all for your participation, your support, and your enthusiasm, as we created this brand-new summer experience. Although we cannot be together in person, we have had such a great time creating our Summer 2020 community online. Whether this was your first GFC program or your 100th, we are where we are because of YOU, and we cannot thank you enough.

Even though Session Fun is over, there are still many opportunities to engage with GFC and with Jewish programming throughout the summer.

Campfire On Tour

Join Us for a Summer of Music and Fun! During this unique and uncertain summer season, when these artists cannot take to the road as usual, we are pleased to offer a series of online concerts to continue to extend the joy and community that their music fosters. These online performances are free to attend, thanks to the generous underwriting of individual families within our community; attendees are invited to support and show their commitment to our camps and other URJ Youth programs by making an online donation.

Tune in on Sunday nights this summer at 7p.m. CT, every week from June 14 – August 23 on the GFC Facebook page to enjoy performances from some of the biggest names in Jewish music.

Mondays through Thursdays, join us on the URJ Facebook Page as songleaders from our URJ camps lead “after-supper” song sessions.

GFC is excited to partner with Reform Movement camps across North America for three weeks of exciting virtual experiences beginning June 29! Join your camp family for daily activities in RJ On the Go, the Reform Movement’s new online platform. Once you’re in, you can select from dozens of great camp programs to participate in, with great content every day of the week! Register today at http://onthego.reformjudaism.org using code CAMP2020.
