This is the perfect opportunity for 6th-8th graders from across Texas and Oklahoma to come together for a weekend of fun at Greene Family Camp. See your GFC friends, meet new friends, and learn about NFTY-TOR, our region’s high school youth group that hosts events throughout the year so that you can see and meet new Jewish friends throughout the year.

The weekend is a chance for participants to experience Camp, celebrate Shabbat and participate in fun and interesting programs planned and led by our NFTY-TOR leaders. You will have a chance to stay in cabins with your friends, meet and hang out with NFTY TOR high school leaders who will be leading programs and joining you in the fun over the weekend.
