Although some of our sessions may show a “waitlist” notification, we still have plenty of room in other units throughout the summer. You can also join the waitlist to be notified if a space becomes available in this session by registering today. We highly encourage you to still register, as availability can change during the year. Best of all, you can register for an open session AND still join the waitlist for your first choice. Have questions? Our team is happy to talk about finding the best fit for your camper – we have so many amazing programs. Please reach out to for more assistance.

Refunds will be given including your deposit:

  • for campers on a “Waiting List” (those not able to be placed in their desired session at OSRUI) if at any time they choose to be removed from the list or are ultimately unable to be placed;
  • if OSRUI is unable or elects not to open because of government regulations, orders or guidelines
  • if OSRUI is required to cancel the session of a child with a pre-existing health condition;
  • if OSRUI is unable or chooses not to open at their own discretion


Change of Session

If Camp is required to make a change to Camper session prior to summer, you will be notified by Camp in writing.  Camp will provide an opportunity at that time for you to cancel Camper’s session without penalty (including return of any deposit). You will also be eligible for this change of session refund for all children in your household who are registered at Camp regardless if the sessions of the sibling(s) were not changed.

A change to the Camper session is defined as one or more of the following: a change of session dates, session cost, or camp geographic location change.


additional fees and discounts

Sibling Discount: Families with two or more campers will receive a $100 discount for each camper after the first. The discount may not be used to reduce your deposit; it will be applied to your balance.

Referral Discount: Any current camper who refers a first-time camper (not a sibling and must be a new family to OSRUI) who attends OSRUI 2024 for 2 weeks or longer will receive a $250 tuition credit. There is no limit on the number of tuition credits a camper may receive. This fee is not valid for cash and may not be used toward your deposit. The referring camper must attend camp to get the tuition credit. If the referred camper cancels, the credit will be removed. Please email the names of campers you have referred to Those families must indicate that you referred them when they register.

The tuition fee includes: All camp activities, laundry, the basic camp pharmacy registration fee, and free limited access for camper families to our online service for viewing photos and emailing your camper.  

The tuition fee does not include charter bus transportation from Chicago or the Twin Cities. On opening and closing days, we offer optional bus service to and from the Chicago area and Minnesota. The bus fee is $280 roundtrip. More details will be available soon.

The transportation fee is covered in the cost of Atid tuition.

Campers enrolled in Kallah or Tzofim Aleph AND Bet are welcome to stay at camp during the day between the sessions (July 2-3). Campers staying for sessions spanning the mid-summer intersession (July 16-18) should plan to depart camp with family between sessions. If travel home for the interim days is not possible, please contact the camp office to discuss options.
