Deposit: A deposit of $500 per camper per session is required upon registration. If you choose to send a check instead of using your credit card, your registration cannot be confirmed until we receive your deposit check and we cannot hold a space for your child in the interim.

Payment Schedule: Tuition must be paid in full by April 1st. Parents may elect to pay in 2 or 3 installments, or may pay the entire balance by April 1st.

Cancellation Fee:
Prior to January 1: $200
January 1 - April 1: $500.
After April 1: Cancellation or withdrawal for any reason after April 1 will result in the forfeiture of all fees.

Cancellation Insurance: You may want to consider cancellation insurance, in the event you need to cancel your child’s registration. We make available, through CampMinder, competitively priced cancellation/interruption protection to cover program costs.  You'll have the option of signing up when you register for camp. Of course you may select another policy/company of your own choosing.

Fee Assistance: OSRUI offers scholarships based on financial need. A refundable deposit of $200 is required at the time of registration. An OSRUI scholarship application must be submitted by December 1st for campers registered in September, October or November. The cancellation fee for campers receiving fee assistance is $50.

All campers must be immunized. See the URJ Policy Statement on Vaccine Status for more information.

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 Fee: Any current camper who refers a first-time camper (not a sibling and must be a new family to OSRUI) who attends OSRUI 2018 for 2 weeks or longer will receive a $100 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. We are sorry but clergy and educators will not receive a credit for referring a congregant. However they will receive a credit for referring other family and friends. Please email the names of campers you have referred to osrui@urj.org. Those families must indicate that you referred them when they register.

The tuition fee includes: All camp activities (except as noted below) and free limited access for camper families to our online service for viewing photos and emailing your camper.

The tuition fee does not include:

Canteen Fee
The canteen fee is mandatory and charged when you register. See the grid above for costs per session. Campers visit the canteen 2 or 3 times each week and may purchase snacks (maximum of two per visit), toiletries, water bottles, and clothing items (t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, etc.). Laundry and spending money for field trips are also deducted from the camper’s canteen account. Campers attending 3 or more weeks may send out laundry once each week after the first week of the session. If your child runs out of canteen funds, you will be called during the session or billed after the summer. If there is money left over in your child’s account, it will be refunded after the summer.

Horseback Riding
There is an additional charge for those who want to horseback ride. See the grid above for costs per session. Horseback Riding is Western Style: 2-week campers can expect 4 lessons and 4-week campers can expect 8 or 9 lessons, subject to weather and program. Note: Due to the time that Tiferet Bet campers spend in their art studio, they will receive 6 lessons at a cost of $215. Programs are for beginners and intermediates. Horseback riding space is limited. Cancellation after April 1st will result in forfeiture of horseback riding fees. There is no charge for horseback riding for Kallah Atid – all campers will have the opportunity to ride once during the session, weather permitting.

Water Skiing
There is an additional charge for those who want to water ski. See the grid above for costs per session. Two-week campers can expect 4 lessons, and 4-week campers can expect 8 or 9 lessons, subject to weather and program. Note: Due to the time that Moshavah campers spend out of camp, they will receive 4 lessons at a cost of $165. Due to the time that Tiferet Bet campers spend in their art studio, they will receive 6 lessons at a cost of $230. Space is limited in this program. Cancellation after April 1st will result in the forfeiture of the water skiing fee. Kallah Atid campers do not water ski.

Non-URJ Fee
Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute is a project of the Union for Reform Judaism. Families who are not members of a URJ congregation will be assessed a surcharge of $75 per week, not to exceed $500 per family. See the grid above for costs per session.

Transportation Fee
There is an additional charge for those who request bus service from the Chicago area, Minnesota, or the Milwaukee airport. Parents/guardians will be able to indicate travel arrangements after February 1st. You must cancel bus service within two weeks of your child’s travel date to receive a refund.

We would never want a child to be denied the opportunity to experience a summer at OSRUI because of financial need. In addition to our congregations that offer scholarships, OSRUI also offers camp scholarships - Camperships - which are available to families and are based on financial need. There are also a range of savings opportunities available to first-time campers. For more information, please see Tuition Assistance and Savings.
Campers staying for two 2-week sessions are expected to stay in camp during the intersession (July 1-2). Parents may visit their camper on Sunday, July 1st, 10:00 a.m. until approximately 3:00 p.m. Many campers are not visited on that Sunday, and the day is fully programmed. There is no charge for the intersession program.

Campers staying for 5, 6, or 8 weeks are expected to go home/off camp with parents during the intersession (July 15-17) if the family lives within driving distance of OSRUI. Campers who must take air travel to and from OSRUI may stay in camp during that intersession if necessary, with prior arrangement. There is no charge for the intersession program.
