Our Mission: Inspiring Jewish Life in Texas and Oklahoma
all year long
URJ Greene Family Camp takes the magic of camp and translates it into a year-round experience!
URJ Greene Family Camp offers an expanded menu of fun, immersive Jewish experiences, 365 days a year. Our mission is to become a year-round hub for Jewish engagement—broadcasting the top hits from our camp playlist, far and wide, all year. We accomplish this through three key offerings:
From Greene Family Camp in Bruceville, TX, to social action corps nationwide, to educational trips to Israel, our summer programs empower children, teens and adults to better themselves, their communities, and the world.
We offer meaningful Jewish experiences for all ages, all year, in Texas, Oklahoma and beyond! Inspired by the magic of camp, our programs foster a love of Judaism while connecting you to our local and global Jewish community.

40 years of Greene Family Camp
Greene was established in 1976 by interested parents and children to build an unforgettable religious, cultural, recreational, and emotional experience. But our story begins much earlier than that.
During the late sixties and early seventies, members of TOFTY (Texas Oklahoma Federation of Temple Youth) had nowhere to call home.
A campaign began and the Reform Synagogues of Texas and Oklahoma raised much of what was needed to acquire the land and build the camp. But more was required and Edward C. Greene stepped forward with the funds necessary to see the project through completion. Since then, many generous individuals and families have helped Greene Family Camp become the center of Jewish life that it is today.
GFC serves all Reform Jewish congregations in Texas and Oklahoma, and is one of 14 camps in the US and Canada owned by the Union for Reform Judaism.Learn more about our history and mission!
