On Friday, February 2, 2018 we will be creating a Shabbat Across the World experience with satellite celebrations going on in all corners of the world! Our congregations will join individual Harlamites and households to participate as "hosts" so we can involve as many members of the community as possible.    

This Shabbat evening can include a camp-style Shabbat service, dinner, and/or song session. We are looking for liaisons/volunteers to communicate with our planning committee throughout the year to help you create a special Shabbat celebration. You will receive support in planning your event, as well as a Shabbat package that will include items created this summer by current campers to help enhance the evening.

Please confirm your participation by filling out our short online form so we can follow up.

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!
