Dear GUCI and Potential GUCI Families:
The time is now to register your child for the time of their lives at Goldman Union Camp Institute (GUCI) this summer. GUCI is a place where Jewish lives and Jewish Identity begin in a wonderfully supportive and spirit filled way. Every summer is an adventure spent with Jewish friends and family-learning who we are and what being Jewish can mean in our lives … and we have a lot of fun swimming, climbing, playing basketball, sharing our passion for music theatre, arts along the way.
We know there will be many questions as we move towards summer. GUCI will be as transparent as possible and provide you with updated information as soon as it is available. As you might expect, the health and safety of our community is of paramount importance. It is possible that COVID 19-related issues and compliance requirements might necessitate changes to certain programs, session dates or lengths, etc. GUCI will make the best decisions that they can with the health and safety of your camper(s) in mind.
If you have not yet registered, that will be your first step toward making this dream a reality for your children. Information and enrollment forms can be found at https://guci.org or just call me to talk at (502) 423-1818.
Financial Assistance is available from a variety of sources to help your camper attend GUCI this summer. The Temple has the Hess Camp Fund specifically designated for GUCI Campers, The Jewish Federation of Louisville offers further support for summer camp experience, there is a “One Happy Camper” scholarship specifically designed for campers in their first three years, and GUCI provided generous discounts on a need basis as well. Once again this year, thanks to the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence, there are more scholarship dollars than ever to support Jewish camping. No one stays home from GUCI for lack of funds, just give us a call and we can help you make this possible. You will find attached below the simple form you need to fill out to request campership support from The Temple.
