Payment Schedule: Tuition must be paid in full by April 1st. A number of monthly payment plans, including payment in full on April 1st are available. Please note that credit cards are charged on or about the 1st day of each month if you select a payment plan.

Cancellation Insurance: You may want to consider cancellation insurance, in the event you need to cancel your child’s registration. We make available, through TravMark, competitively priced cancellation/interruption protection to cover program costs. Of course you may select another policy/company of your own choosing.

Fee Assistance: GUCI offers scholarships based on financial need. An aid form can be requested after January 1st by contacting the office. Decisions are made on a rolling basis. 

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

One Happy Camper, through the Foundation for Jewish Camp, provides for up to $1,000 for a child's first summer at camp. Please note that many families live in an area where One Happy Camper grants are administered by a local federation or other organization. Learn if that applies to your community.

Sibling Discount: Families with two or more campers will receive a $100 discount for each camper after the first. The discount will be applied automatically. 

Referral Fee: Any current camper who refers a first-time camper (not a sibling and must be a new family to GUCI) who attends GUCI 2016 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 guci@urj.org Those families must indicate that you referred them when they register.

Non-URJ Fee
Goldman Union Camp 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.

We understand that your children's Jewish education and identity are extremely important to your family. And we know, just as you do, that sending your children to an overnight Jewish summer camp is the best way to ensure a lifelong affiliation with the Jewish people and customs, and to make Jewish friends. But we also recognize that summer camps are an expensive endeavor.
