Get together and celebrate Shabbat with your Harlam family wherever you are and eat whatever you want! All you need to do is sign up, host your Shabbat, take pictures and post them using the #HarlamShabbat hashtag, and confirm with us who attended. Plus, we'll send every host a package full of Camp Harlam Shabbat supplies to help you to prepare for and celebrate a Harlam-style Shabbat.

On August 13, 2017, we were joined by over 300 friends to enjoy a spectacular day at Camp Harlam. We connected and reconnected to the people and the place that, for so many of us, helped shaped who we are today. Highlights included a ceremony honoring couples who met at camp, fun activities throughout camp, recording of incredible stories for our Harlam@60 podcast project, beautiful dedications of the new Fendrick Commons and Jyl's Office spaces, and much more. Thanks to all who were attendance, and look for photos and videos coming soon!

As part of Harlam@60, we are creating an exhibit in the Welcome Center to honor camp’s incredible history. Our vision for the exhibit is to have a curated collection of memorabilia and photos organized by decade, and we want your mementos to be a part of this archival collection!
