Forms Are the Best Way to Communicate Your Needs to Us

“The day that OSRUI summer forms are ready is a very exciting day in our house. It is the first official sign that summer camp is just around the corner. While my kids are excited, thinking about their friends, favorite activities and what to pack, I get ready to tackle the digital stack of forms in front of me that help me know my kid will have the amazing experience they are dreaming of. As parents and guardians, we fill out so many forms all year round for the many activities our kids participate in. Over the years I have sent my kids to OSRUI I have been so impressed with how camp meets the unique needs of each of my campers. I am increasingly grateful for the opportunity to share our families’ stories with the OSRUI team”.

Summer is coming and before you know it you’ll be dropping off your children at Olin Sang Ruby Union Institute! Planning is well underway to create a special and memorable experience for every camper. Needless to say we are excited and eager for the magic to start!

As we prepare for the summer, we want to learn as much as possible about each and every camper before they even step foot on camp. The information shared with us ahead of the summer helps us ensure a healthy and successful experience at OSRUI for everyone.

This is why the forms are important. They’re our map for creating a safe adventure full of memories, friendships, and joy for the whole OSRUI community.

There are 2 ways to access your forms: Through the CampInTouch Forms Dashboard or through the Campanion App.

Read below to learn more about our forms and process!


The CampInTouch Dashboard is a way to access your forms where you will see which forms are required for your camper and which are optional. The Form Instructions include a checklist of all forms, and any special instructions.  All forms are due April 15, except where noted.

Please note: all forms must be submitted electronically through either CampInTouch or the Campanion App.

NOTE: You will need to login with your CampMinder account to access the CampInTouch dashboard.

The Campanion App

Campanion is a mobile app that is used during the summer to share your child’s experience at camp (pictures, updates and more!) and can streamline the process of returning Camper Forms. Campanion includes a built-in PDF uploader, allowing you to take pictures of your forms with your phone or mobile device and upload them directly to your account.

To get started, follow these simple steps:

  1. Download the Campanion app 
  2. Login to the app using your Camper Account login and password
  3. Complete and Upload Forms and Documents
Note: You will need to sign in on the app with your CampInTouch username and password. If you have forgotten your password, you will need to reset it from a computer.
