Year Round

2023-2024 Year-Round Programs

Throughout the year, we host a variety of family camps and youth programs for all ages. These special experiences show off the joy of camp, fun activities, new connections, and learning. We love welcoming our camp community to GFC year-round and we look forward to having you join us. 

Join us for NFTY TOR’s winTOR Kallah February 9-11, 2024! Open to all 8th – 12th graders in the Texas/Oklahoma region. 

February 9-11, 2024

For over eighty years, NFTY – The Reform Jewish Youth Movement, has offered thousands of young people the opportunity to explore and live Reform Judaism through teen-powered weekends and engaging social justice ventures.

TOR is the Texas and Oklahoma region of NFTY. We hope you will join us for our first in-person event of the year- a very groovy win-TOR Kallah! 

Bring the entire family to join us for GFC JFAM Winter Family Camp, February 9-11, 2024. This event is for all ages!

February 9-11, 2024

GFC JFAM Winter Family Camp is a whole-family event for families with children camp-aged or younger. Powered by JFAM, through the Foundation for Jewish Camp, we are able to offer 50% off your total tuition for first-time attendees with a child 8-years-old or younger. We are excited to partner with PJ Library for this immersive weekend event. This is a chance to be together as a family, enjoy activities planned just for you, and meet new friends. Relax, have fun, and spend quality time together while learning what Jewish camping is all about. For questions, please reach out directly to our Family Camp Coordinator, Valerie Klein, at VKlein@urj.org.
