*1st Timer Tuition represents the URJ Member Tuition less a $700 One Happy Camper Incentive Grant for first-time campers attending a session 12+ consecutive days. Families must apply at OneHappyCamper.org to receive this grant after enrolling in camp.  For campers who are not members of a URJ congregation, the grant would be applied after assessing the Non-Member Fee.

Housing: All camp sessions, with the exception of CIT & Avodah, will live in cabins this summer.

 

All-Gender Housing Option >

For Summer 2024, based on demand, we are pleased to continue offering all-gender housing options during Session 1: Rishonim and Hagigah, as well as all summer for Avodah and CIT. If there is sufficient interest in other sessions or amongst other age groups, we will consider adding additional all-gender cabins as well.  We have found that there is a lot of interest in all-gender cabins for the older campers and currently not enough demand to warrant offering all-gender cabins for younger campers; however, ALL of our counselors are trained to create a safe and welcoming space for campers of all genders in every cabin. If you are interested or have questions, please email rdubowe@urj.org.

Campers entering 6th-9th grade in Fall 2024 who are attending a 4-week session for the first time are eligible for a $1000 tuition grant through the 4isMore initiative. Learn more >>

 

4 Week Sessions

Campers entering grades 6 - 11 interested in a 4 week experience have two session options throughout the summer: Session 1 or Session 2.
