10 Day Sessions
Our youngest campers get to experience a taste of Greene by attending 10 day sessions instead of the full 3 1/2 weeks. Learn more about our programs below.
Beginning Your Camp Journey
Current 1st and 2nd Graders: Bonim
For our Bonim campers, everything is new! Our Bonim campers have constant supervision from counselors who are specially trained to help foster friendships, teach traditions, and instill within our campers a love of Judaism and camp.
Current 3rd and 4th Graders: Shorashim
Our Shorashim campers get to experience the best of camp in a shorter amount of time than our usual twenty-four day sessions. Shorashim campers get to choose one week’s worth of activities, get to go on a camp out, and learn new camp traditions. This is a great way to try out camp before returning for a longer session.
3 1/2 Week Sessions
Our older campers get to experience all that Greene Family Camp has to offer in our 24 day sessions. From advancing a swim level to choosing activities, all-camp programs that build community and a chance to work together on our Challenge Course, a full session of camp helps our campers to make new friends that could last a lifetime while also growing as individuals.
Current 3rd and 4th Graders: Niviim
Many new campers, as well as our Shorashim and Bonim campers, move right into Niviim for their first opportunity to stay in camp for 24 days! These campers get to experience all that camp has to offer, from daily activities like swimming, sports, and the arts to meaningful and exciting camp-wide events.
Current 5th Graders: Kohanim
Curent 6th Graders: Shoftim
Current 7th Graders: Melachim
Melachim campers get extra perks as some of our older campers. Melachim gets to wake up an hour later, and stay up later, too. Melachim campers get to choose a “Gadol,” or a specialty area where they can focus in on an activity, and master it. Melachim campers also get to experience more of our Challenge Course.
Current 8th Graders: S'ganim
In this critical year before entering high school, S’ganim campers have their very own program while also still having an opportunity to partake in some traditional camp activities. S’ganim has their own renovated and air conditioned camper village that used to house our Kibbutz program. S’ganim unit’s campers explore their Jewish journeys as individuals and as a unit through a variety of hands-on activities and projects.
Current 9th Graders: Kibbutz
Kibbutz is one of the most exciting steps up through a camper’s career at Greene. Kibbutznikim (Kibbutz campers) live in a setting apart from main camp in our Isaac Mayer Wise Academy Eco-Village. They participate in a fun yet intense program of learning and living designed to foster an environment that supports personal growth and an appreciation of the natural world.
Summer Long Teen Training
Current 11th Graders: Avodah
The top rung of the GFC camper ladder, Avodah gets to experience being a counselor and staff member, with the opportunity to work directly with co-counselors in a bunk and contribute their skills to a range of campers in various specialty areas. At the end of the summer, Avodah participants earn a certificate detailing the hours spent in community service and continuing education and receive a salary bonus if hired the following summer as a staff member.
