Welcome to the URJ Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute! As we prepare to celebrate our 65th summer, we look with pride on the more than 30,000 children who have passed through our gates, building lifelong friendships, exploring their Jewish identity, and having the time of their lives. In 1952, Union Institute was founded by the Reform Movement; today, URJ Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute serves more than 1,000 campers each summer from throughout North America and beyond.

We have programs for children of all ages and talents, with sessions ranging in length from five days to seven weeks. All of our sessions are staffed by mature college students, under the guidance of experienced senior staff members and faculty from across the country. OSRUI is proud of its commitment to providing campers with strong and encouraging Jewish role models.

We hope this website will give you a feel for what a special place OSRUI is. We look forward to speaking with you about OSRUI and hearing more about your child. Contact us via phone or email: 847-509-0990 osrui@urj.org
