Description

Nestled in the foothills of the magnificent Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, Camp Harlam provides the finest in Jewish Camping. Established in 1958, Camp Harlam has developed a strong tradition of success and excellence based on a highly skilled staff dedicated to the spiritual, physical, social and emotional well-being of each child, while building lifelong relationships between friends.

Camp Harlam is one of fifteen Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) overnight camps around the country (with one day camp, run by Harlam, opened in 2014). Camp Harlam has a 300-acre facility, a population of approximately 550 campers each session, and a staff of over 225 exceptional role models.

The Camp Harlam family consists of smaller communities within Junior Camp, Senior Camp, and the Gesher (Counselor in Training) Program. Junior and Senior Camps are further broken down into units based on a child’s school grade to create a more intimate and age-appropriate experience for our campers.
