Our most popular weekend returns combining Fall Camp Retreat (2nd-5th Graders), Fall Fest (6th-8th graders), and NFTY-TOR’s Na’aseh v’Nishmah and March on Austin trips (9th-12th graders). Send all of your campers to GFC for a weekend of camp fun, and special programming.

Teens can also sign up for a social justice track, where they can participate in offsite trips and learn about issues they truly care about.

This is also a great opportunity for children to try out camp for the first time, or reunite with old camp friends!

Check Out Our Schedule for 2nd-8th Graders!

TEENS:

Join us for a fun and meaningful weekend at Fall Camp! Our social justice teen track will be full of learning, bonding, skills building and fun that you won’t want to miss! This is our newest event that combines our traditional leadership and learning NFTY-TOR event, N’aseh V’Nishmah, and our travel social justice trip, March on Austin!

Highlights include:

Celebrating Shabbat together at Greene Family Camp with musical services and dinner with old and new friends.

Faculty and teen-led programs on exploring how our Jewish tradition teaches us about healthy dialogue, civility, and the brokenness you see in the world.

Saturday trip to Austin for an interactive training with the Anti-Defamation League that will equip students to respond effectively and pro-actively to anti-Semitism. We will have additional speakers and training so that teens can learn how to be upstanders for other minority groups and explore how they can make an impact on their local communities.

We will wrap up our time in Austin with a hands-on community service project with a low-income school district.

We will return to camp for a relaxing evening with a campfire Havdallah service, campfire song session (with s’mores), and fun programming.
