GFC Family Retreat

on Sun, 01/20/2013 - 01:35
  Please contact Helen and let her know if your family can attend: This will be the ultimate Jewish family vacation for parents and children! It is a weekend to remember!  It will be held March 1st – 3rd, 2013. CBSW would like to promote student involvement in the URJ Greene Family Camp (GFC) The fees are: $130 per adult, $105 per child ages 3 and up, and children under 3 are free. Studies suggest that children who go to Jewish camps come home with a much stronger sense of their Jewish selves. GFC is one of twelve summer camp institutes owned by the Union for Reform Judaism. Our regional GFC programs provide an unforgettable religious, cultural, recreational and emotional experience for all ages. GFC is a state-of-the-art facility and located 3 hours drive from The Woodlands (90 miles North of Austin) on more than 160 beautiful spacious acres. Since 1976, GFC has served all of the Reform congregations of Texas and Oklahoma. It’s the ultimate Jewish family vacation and a great opportunity for parents and children of all ages to discover the incredible experience of a GFC Shabbat. The young and young-at-heart will spend much of their weekend together – climbing GFC 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. Join us for the GFC Family Retreat, and you will return home with memories of a Shabbat your family will not soon forget. There will be “Parents Only” sessions with the GFC scholar-in-residence, as well as “Camper Only” sessions with GFC all-star staff. Our entire extended camp family will join together for exciting family programming and a wonderful time.
