Home » About GUCI » Board of Advisors

The URJ GUCI Board of Advisors is a dynamic volunteer body which exists to advance GUCI’s mission by providing counsel and expertise to the Director and his/her staff, and assists in organizing and recruiting workforces for Camp projects and special events. This non-fiduciary board promotes the benefits of Reform Jewish resident camping and advocates on behalf of GUCI to Jewish communities throughout the Midwest and beyond. This board meets 4-6 times a year to discuss ways to support camp and is made up of camp alumni, camp parents, regional clergy and other stakeholders who care about camp.
