Sign up for Camp this Summer!

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 magical place where children cultivate their unique Jewish identities in a supportive environment. At GUCI, we celebrate our differences and unite in our love for Judaism. Each summer is a dynamic blend of friendship, outdoor adventures, swimming, sports, music, dance, art, theater, and much more.

If you still need to register, this will be your first step toward making this dream a reality for your children. Information and enrollment forms can be found at

Financial Assistance is available from various sources to help your camper attend GUCI this summer.

  • Jewish Federation of Louisville offers significant support for summer camp experiences and “One Happy Camper” scholarships specifically designed for campers in their first three years. Please contact Alison Roemer for information (502) 238-2730 or
  • Albert & Betty Hess GUCI Scholarship Camp Fund – specifically designated for Temple children to attend GUCI. Please see below for application.
  • GUCI provides options and generous discounts which are need-based. More information can be found at

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; please call or email; we can help you make this possible. Attached below is the simple form you need to fill out to request support from The Temple.

Rabbi David Ariel-Joel

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.  For more information, please contact Andrea at
