additional Fees and conditions

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.

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. We’ve done our best to compile a list of financial resources for families in our region. Some of these are available to all; others are based on your geographic location. Please visit our financial assistance and savings page.
