It’s camp fun for EVERYONE!
Bring the whole family to Greene Family Camp to celebrate Tu BiShevat surrounded by nature, and discover the incredible experience of Jewish camping! Camp is for EVERYONE, and we are excited to share the magic of camp across generations.
Tu BiShevat Family Retreat is the ultimate Jewish family vacation, and all are welcome! We are partnering with PJ Library/Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, PJ Library/Jewish Federation of Great Houston, and the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston for an incredible, literary, Tu BiShevat Family Retreat weekend. We will start the weekend with a meaningful and memorable Shabbat dinner and service, celebrate Havdallah around the campfire on Saturday evening, and fill all the moments in-between with activities, Shabbat rest, renewal, and reflection, new memories, and new friendships!
Jewish musician Jason Mesches will be filling the weekend with songs, spirituality, energy, and fun. Enjoy classic songs as well as music from his new album, “The Nosh Pit”, as we sing, dance, and nosh!
The young and young-at-heart will spend much of their weekend together – climbing our 50-foot Alpine Tower, experiencing the giant swing, creating arts & crafts projects, playing sports, visiting the garden, learning Israeli folk dances and camp songs, enjoying outdoor and indoor sports, as well as participating in many of the other great activities that GFC offers during the summer.
There will be “Parents Only” sessions with learning opportunities, as well as “Camper Only” sessions with our all-star camp staff. Our entire camp kehillah (community) will join together for exciting family programming. Camper-age kids (2nd graders and up) will enjoy bunking with counselors in camper cabins, and families with younger children (1st grade and younger) will be housed together in private rooms.
Join us for the GFC Tu BiShevat Family Retreat, and you will return home with memories of a Shabbat your family will never forget. Have all of your questions answered about our summer camp program and let us show you how incredible a summer at GFC will be for your campers and your family! Whether you are a camp veteran or this is your first time at Greene Family Camp, Tu BiShevat Family Retreat will be a weekend filled with memories for everyone!
