If you have questions or need assistance in determining the proper program for your child, please contact the camp office at (610) 668-0423.

*Tuition is inclusive of a $1,000 One Happy Camper Incentive Grant for first-time campers attending a full session (families must apply at to receive this grant after enrolling at camp). Please note that some areas offer a smaller grant if your family has received a One Happy Camper grant in the past. Tuition does not include a $300 non-URJ member fee for those families unaffiliated with a URJ congregation.

**Full session dates and rates include the cost of intersession. More information will be shared soon about our intersession program options.

***Our partners at NFTY in Israel have partnered with us to create a summer program which combines 3.5 weeks at Harlam in our Gesher program with a 3.5-week trip to Israel for the teens who were supposed to be in Israel in summer 2020 but were unable to do so because of the global pandemic. Our plan for this unique situation is for teens to participate in three weeks of community-building and leadership and skill development in our Gesher program at Camp Harlam, and then leave directly from camp to depart for 3.5 weeks of travel in Israel. As we continue our summer 2021 planning, we are exploring the feasibility of allowing those who choose not to go to Israel as part of this program to remain at camp after the initial 3.5-week Gesher experience. The cost listed here covers only the 3.5-week program at camp. Screening and preparation for the program will follow after registration. Click here for more details.

Rishonim (our 12-day Introductory session for first time campers) may be offered in the future, but with reduced capacity and measures in place to manage risk by fewer people arriving and departing camp, we are not opening enrollment for this program. 

Full Season Session Option

If you are interested in having a child attend camp for both the First and Second Sessions (each session is 3½ weeks) please select ONLY the “Full Season” check box when enrolling. In recent years, approximately 5-10% of Camp Harlam campers have attended camp for the full summer. More information will be shared about our intersession program options for our full season campers.

Payment Plan Options

Payments may be made by E-check, Paper Check, Debit Card (all without surcharge), and Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard and Discover). A non-refundable 2.75% credit card processing fee will be added to all credit card transactions. During this time, all URJ offices are closed and the entire Professional Staff is working remotely, so we are unable to accept paper checks. There is a $500 deposit due upon registration. Families can then opt to pay in three installments, monthly, or in full. Click here for more information about payment options for summer 2021.

Special Sibling Discount

Camp Harlam families will receive a $150 credit for their second child enrolled for 2020 at Camp Harlam. Each additional child enrolled in Camp Harlam will receive a $250 credit.

Additionally, through the generosity of the Weidhorn Family Foundation, a $1,000,000 endowment for scholarship has been established at Camp Harlam. This will allow us to begin awarding special Weidhorn Scholarship Program awards to families with 2, 3, 4 or 5 children at camp. No special form needs to be completed; families interested in being considered for this program will self-identify through the online Financial Assistance application and acceptance in the Weidhorn Scholarship Program will occur during Camp Harlam’s Scholarship Committee review process.

Registration Terms and Policies

As the final step of the registration process, families will need to indicate their agreement with our Camp Harlam Application Policies.
