Quick facts:

–Arrive between 3:30 and 4:30pm on Friday. We will light candles a bit before 5:00pm.

–Greene Family Camp provides motel-style housing. Each room has two twin beds and a bathroom with an upright shower or a shower with a tub. Some rooms have a connecting door to an adjacent room; families with more than one child will receive priority on those. You’ll want to bring pillows, linens, blankets, and a pack-n-play if necessary. A full packing list will be sent to those who register.

–We will facilitate parallel activities so that kids of all ages will feel loved and engaged. Parents will also get special attention after you put your kids to bed. Our staff will monitor the rooms and will come get you if your kids wake up.

–Food will be vegetarian and will not be cooked on Shabbat.

–We’ll end Sunday morning around 9:30am.
