Founded in 1976, the URJ Greene Family Camp offers an unforgettable Jewish summer camp experience in the heart of Texas. GFC is located in Bruceville, TX and serves Reform congregations in Texas and Oklahoma. Students spend up to four weeks sleeping in cabins with their friends, taking on new challenges in daily activities, and immersing themselves in Judaism and a 24/7 Jewish community. The ultimate summer experience is waiting for you...learn more about GFC!
Temple Beth-El is proud to support GFC. Each Summer, over 50 TBE campers make their way to Bruceville, TX, to spend a session at Greene Family Camp, joined by our clergy and staff and other members of the Temple community. Want to be part of the fun? Follow TBE to GFC!
