URJ Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute is a Reform Jewish summer camp in Oconomowoc, WI for children in grades 3 to 12. Since 1952, OSRUI has provided campers a place to build lifelong friendships, explore Judaism, and have the time of their lives.
As we prepare to celebrate our 65th summer, we look with pride on the more than 30,000 children who have passed through our gates, building lifelong friendships, exploring their Jewish identity, and having the time of their lives. In 1952, Union Institute was founded by the Reform Movement; today, URJ Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute serves more than 1,000 campers each summer from throughout North America and beyond.
We see our mission, in part, as providing the opportunity for the pursuit of excellence in Jewish life experiences. Our sessions are varied and focus on specific areas of interest, including Kibbutz life, the arts, Hebrew immersion, and more. We offer a wealth of activities, from archery and the Alpine Tower to drama, photography, and waterskiing, to name just a few. Most importantly, our programs foster independence and personal growth.
