All forms required to be completed for each Teen Dorm resident will be emailed to you the first week of June, and must be completed and returned to us by June 24.

- All of our residence halls are equipped with a magnet locking system and will be locked between midnight
and 6 am. Should anyone need to leave the building during that time, they will not be able to re-enter without someone to open the door from inside or calling the JBU campus safety hotline (479-215-5000).
- Also, we ask that you leave the mattress covers on the beds in the residence halls during your stay and ensure, prior to your departure, that all mattress covers remain on the beds. Campers tend to roll the mattress cover into their own bedding accidently. Any missing mattress covers will incur a $20 fee.
Campers will be provided with an internet guest pass for the week. You can find the password in your registration packet.
Alternative Housing Option – Local Hotels/Motels
For larger families, it can be more economical to stay in a local hotel or motel. Click here for information on local accommodations where OSI has negotiated a group rate.
