Choosing a Session

Please review the following important information regarding your choices for enrollment:

For Campers Currently in 1st Grade
Full session enrollment does not allow for attendance by campers that are younger than those currently in 2nd grade. Our experience has been that limiting our youngest cabin groups to those finishing 2nd grade or older assures a more successful experience. Campers currently in 1st grade are eligible for our Introductory Experience program. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact the camp office at 610-668-0423 (off-season) or 570-629-1390 (summer).

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 about our intersession program between first and second sessions will be shared in the fall.

New Intro Experience Program Launching in 2020

  • Program designed exclusively for Intro Experience campers that provides an introduction to the Harlam experience, and highlights the best of what our community and program can provide
  • Two 12-day/11-night sessions offered
  • Each session targeted to a specific age group – open to campers entering grades 2-5
  • Intro Experience campers will be assigned to bunks with only other Intro Experience participants

We offer this introductory experience for children currently in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grades only for the purpose of giving families more options and another gateway into residential Jewish camp. Although the Intro Program is full of activity and offers the essence of the camp’s unique spirit and experience, we strongly encourage families considering this option to also give thought to the full 3½-week sessions (please keep in mind the Intro Experience is the only overnight option for current 1st graders). We have found over many years that campers who are ready for our Intro Experience at Camp Harlam are almost always ready for more, and it’s the full First and Second Sessions that provide the most robust and authentic program for all ages of campers.

If you have specific questions regarding the consideration of the Introductory Experience Sessions for your child, please contact the camp office at 610-668-0423 (off-season) or 570-629-1390 (summer).

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. Please review these policies before you begin the registration process.
