Sukkot Family Retreat
October 18-20, 2019
Bring the whole family to GFC, celebrate Sukkot, and discover the incredible experience of Jewish camping! Camp is for EVERYONE, and we are excited to share the magic of camp across generations.
Sukkot Family Retreat is the ultimate Jewish family vacation and an excellent opportunity for parents and children of all ages to discover the magic of a GFC Shabbat and get a taste of camp. We are partnering with PJ Library for an incredible, literary Sukkot Family Retreat weekend. 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, 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 will be housed together in private rooms.
The incredibly talented Nefesh Mountain will fill our weekend together with their award-winning eclectic Jewish-Bluegrass music. Other activities include arts & crafts, story-time, ropes course, sports, scavenger hunt, and more!
Join us for the GFC Sukkot Family Retreat, and you will return home with memories of a Shabbat your family will not soon forget. Get your summer questions answered and take advantage of early registration opportunities for summer. Whether you are a camp veteran or this is your first time at Greene Family Camp, Sukkot Family Retreat will be a weekend filled with memories for everyone!
