Welcome Home to Camp Harlam!

Located in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, Harlam offers everything from outdoor adventures, to waterfront programs, to arts and sports and much more.

But beyond all of these activities, Harlam offers something special that every camper feels from the moment they arrive. It’s the power of our community. It’s a sense of belonging and comfort. A place where you feel safe and free to express yourself. Campers gain confidence, strong friendships and a love of Judaism.

Nestled in the foothills of Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, Camp Harlam offers a top-tier Jewish Camping experience. Since 1958 Camp Harlam has been dedicated to the spiritual, physical, social and emotional well-being of our campers. Each summer, our 300-acre facility is home to roughly 550 campers per 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. 

Camp Harlam is one of 15 Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) overnight camps across North America. Our mission and philosophy are grounded in Reform Jewish values.
