Dear Families: Did you know that Camp Harlam has the largest tables of any camp* in its Chadar Ochel?

I first saw these tables in January when I took my inaugural trip to camp as the new Director, and when we entered the Chadar Ochel, I was immediately taken aback by their size.

Please use this web address to access our blogs, video and other great communications from camp. http://harlam.rjblog.org Dear Families: As the First Session of Camp Harlam’s 2011 season comes to a close in the next few days, I know that many of our campers and staff are feeling mixed emotions.

Dear Camp Harlam Families: It’s warm in the Poconos, but the Camp Harlam kids are cool as they enjoy their second day of Maccabiah (Color War) programs.

Our water stations all over camp are bustling, and we will continue to do all that we can to ensure our campers’ good health and happiness.
