Discover these tried and true camps and give your tweens and teens the chance to explore, learn, and be enriched this summer.

URJ Greene Family Camp
URJ Greene Family Camp provides exciting educational and recreational Jewish experiences all year long for youth, adults, and families. The flagship program is summer camp for entering 2nd-12th graders. Weekend events occur throughout the year for participants of all ages and adults alike. Every event with GFC gives participants more opportunities to make new friends, try new things, and strengthen their Jewish identity. From the ropes course to the lake and pools, the softball field to the archery range, the art room to the new theater, there are activities for everyone! Climb the Alpine Tower and hone your basketball skills in the morning; spend time with your bunkmates and create a fused-glass mezuzah in the afternoon. All in a day at GFC.


Nancy Lieberman Charities Basketball Camps
This year Nancy Lieberman Charities will celebrate 39 years of conducting summer basketball camps and clinics for children ages 5 to 17. Basketball Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman leads each session, including demonstrations of basketball skills and drills, while stressing the importance of sportsmanship, teamwork and goal-setting. At these camps, basketball is used as a tool to teach students valuable lessons such as staying in school, leading a healthy lifestyle, saying “no” to drugs and alcohol, making positive decisions to achieve goals, and building confidence and self-esteem. Lieberman stresses self-improvement, health and fitness, working together and a winning attitude. Camp scholarships available.
