Celebrating Melissa

I arrived at Camp for the first time on April 26th, 2018. Unlike many of Greene's staff members, I never went to GFC (or any camp!), and this was my first time setting foot at Greene. I knew no one except Senior Assistant Director Ethan Lane-Miller, who started my...

Tonight's Hanukkah blog post was written by Lexie Lowey, a long time GFC camper and a Summer 2021 Avodahnik Camp is my safe place, my happy place, and the one place I can truly be me. My favorite memories with my favorite people happened at camp. Camp experiences are...

Tonight's Hanukkah blog post was written by Lihi Solomonov, a Summer 2021 Mishlachat member, photographer, and Chalutzim counselor. Hanukkah is one of my favorite holidays, and it is for a good reason. For eight nights, we get to spend time with loved ones, share...
