Camp Harlam's Executive Director, Aaron Selkow, will share a series of writings that explore the stories of prominent leaders that helped to establish, grow and sustain Harlam's success during the last 60 years.

"For sixty years, Camp Harlam has thrived as a place for campers and staff to come together and enjoy extraordinary opportunities for connection, Jewish identity and culture, programs and traditions, skill-development, and personal growth. If a film was to be made of Harlam, it would be full of color, humor, love, ritual, and spirit."  [Read more]
