Parent Handbook

Dear JORI Families,

The staff of Camp JORI looks forward to welcoming you to the 2019 camping season. Since its beginning in 1937 as the summer program of the Jewish Orphanage of Rhode Island (JORI), campers have enjoyed summers in a nurturing, family-like environment.

Our Parent Handbook 2019 will provide you with the answers to questions and resources to help prepare your child for camp. Returning and first- time families should review the information provided in this handbook. In response to many questions raised by families regarding procedures, policies, and resources, we update this manual annually.

As always, families are welcome to phone Camp JORI at (401) 421-4111×124 before June 17th. Please call the camp at (401) 783-7000 from June 17th-August 14th. I am available via email at or my cell phone: (314) 495-7089 during the camp season as well as off-season.

Ricky Kodner
Director, Camp JORI
