The Fine Print

***Penn Hillel's Pre-Orientation has a registration fee of $200.00, NOT including the University Early Move-In Fee. Your spot on the Pre-Orientation Retreat is not secured until you pay the registration fee.***
***Our students and staff will be visiting Ramah Nyack, an overnight, Kosher, camp just a bus ride away. Ramah Nyack provides us with cabins that include beds, indoor bathrooms, and showers. Our schedule will consist of light physical activity, but no extended hikes/etc. Kosher food and snacks will be provided for every meal and other dietary needs will be accomodated by request.***
