Camp Harlam's leadership is dedicated to helping families afford our extraordinary summer experience in any way possible. In addition to partnerships with URJ synagogues and One Happy Camper (OHC) sponsors, Harlam provides very generous scholarship through the Mitch Perlmeter Scholarship Fund and other programs. Gifts from Harlam are made confidentially through an anonymous/needs-based process facilitated by the camp's Financial Assistance Committee.
The Camp Harlam Financial Assistance application will be added to an enrolled family's CampInTouch account in the Fall, as well as other materials related to this process. Please submit the Financial Assistance application by January 15, 2018, while the required tax information can be submitted by February 28, 2018. Because of the anticipated demand for assistance each year, we strongly encourage families in need to enroll in camp and apply for assistance as soon as possible. Registration deposits are refundable for applicants, and we will make every effort to award scholarships in the early Spring.
You can also refer to the 2018 Financial Assistance Resources for Families and Synagogue Participation 2018 documents for information about the process and additional scholarship opportunities (these documents will be updated for the 2018 season shortly). Please feel free to contact Cori Miller, our Camper Care & Enrollment Manager, at CMiller@URJ.org or 610-668-0423, ext. 1033 with any questions.
This process should be followed for currently enrolled campers (you must be enrolled to be considered for scholarship) as well as by Harlam families with a child participating in NFTY in Israel. Please note that 2017 Weidhorn Scholarship Program recipients will not need to complete the Financial Assistance Application again in 2018.
