I was one who hardly knew anyone and couldn’t find my way around camp. At this point in my life, this was one of the biggest chances I had ever taken – and it most certainly paid off! My first summer at GFC allowed me to take a chance and explore new activities and create new friendships and memories.

The 2013 application materials are now available for the GFC Avodah counselor-in-training program. The Avodah program combines leadership training and professional development opportunities as they look ahead to their senior year of high school and further to college. It gives them the unique opportunity to learn while having fun with their friends and taking advantage of everything GFC has to offer. Rachael Pearson, a 2012 Avodah participant, shares her experience in the program last summer.

And much like the circus, it seems like we’ve saved much of the best stuff for last, gearing up for one big finale before the campers head home. The last few nights have provided some eye popping entertainment and fun. 2 nights ago we gathered together for the All-Camp Talent Show. This year’s theme, Legends of the Hidden Talents (that’s for all you alumni and staff that grew up watching the show [...]

A successful summer wouldn’t be possible without the amazing GFC staff. Every summer more than 150 people from diverse backgrounds travel from near and far to spend the summer at Greene. While of course our first priority is caring for campers and ensuring they have a great summer, there are so many benefits to being on staff. Working at Greene isn’t just taking a summer job, it’s making a choice to be part of something bigger. It’s about ensuring that there are future Jewish leaders, it’s about personal growth and lifelong friendships. It’s about acting like a kid while still [...]

By Jackie Glazer and Taylor Weiss Hey GFCers! We are Jackie Glazer and Taylor Weiss, two Avodahs that were lucky enough to shadow the lovely, wonderful, and abatiwaha ( a Dan Nichols inspired Swahili word for fantastic) Emily Andes. Our experience as shadows were similar to Carly’s, but we were lucky enough to have a special event going on tonight, THE DAN NICHOLS CONCERT!!! The evening started out with a delci0us Thanksgiving dinner that consisted of turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and ended with the GFC special recipe for cherry pie. YUMMY! We used this opportunity to think of some of [...]
