Travel Insurance:  See our Program Protector insurance.  You have 20 days from the time of your first payment (typically your deposit paid during registration) to purchase a Program Protector plan enhanced plan. The option to purchase a policy is built into the registration system and is not administered by Camp Kalsman or the URJ in any way. Any questions must be directed to the Program Protector Team.

Forms  Required Camper Health & Information forms will be available to complete on-line via your CampInTouch account in early 2024. These forms must be completed no later than May 1st, 2024. For the Medical Examination Form, a physical exam is required within twelve months of the camper’s arrival at Camp. Families who have not completed all of their forms by June 1st, 2024 will incur a fee of $50 per camper unless an explicit exception has been made by the Camp in writing.

Vaccination Policy The URJ Camping system considers camp safety and public health as matters of utmost importance. The vaccination of all members of the camp community ranks as a key component in maintaining a safe environment and in decreasing the risk of transmission of contagious illness. Accordingly, the URJ Camping system requires that any member of the camp community in residence receive up-to-date, age-appropriate immunizations. The complete list of required immunizations Summer 2024 can be found here.

Complete Terms & Conditions: As one of the steps in the online registration process, you will be asked to indicate your agreement with our Terms & Conditions. Please click here to review them before you begin the online registration process. They will be visible and available for your review when you apply online, but we recommend you review them here before you begin.

Waitlist
If your desired session is marked “Waitlist” please register your child for that session (by clicking Register Now above) and your child will automatically be placed on the waiting list in the order received. You will not be charged the $300 deposit. Should a spot open in that session, we will contact you right away to verify that you would like to move forward with taking the spot. Should you elect to take the spot, you will be charged the $300 at that time.
Special Incentives

Sibling Discount – If you have more than one child from your immediate family enrolled, we will apply a $50 discount to each additional child.

First-Time Camper Grants – 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.
