Making camp affordable

Home » Financial Assistance


URJ Greene Family Camp is pleased to offer partial, need-based financial support or “camperships” to help families send their children to summer camp.

A significant portion of the assistance we provide is made possible through the generosity of former campers, parents and friends of GFC. We are extremely grateful for their support and commitment to making camp accessible for families throughout Texas and Oklahoma.
