URJ Camps

Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) Camps

Reform Jewish camps serve as an incubator for the future of North American Judaism. These camps provide a peer group that greatly increases the likeliness of campers making Jewish choices on a daily basis. Children who attend URJ camps are more likely to remain engaged with Judaism throughout their lives.

URJ Camp Harlam is a Reform Jewish summer camp in Kunkletown, PA for children entering grades 3 to 12. Established in 1958 in the beautiful foothills of the Pocono Mountains, Camp Harlam provides the finest in recreational and educational activities. Camp Harlam has developed a strong tradition of success and excellence based on a highly skilled staff dedicated to the spiritual, physical, social and emotional well-being of each child, while building lifelong relationships between friends. Camp Harlam opened in 1958 and has grown to its present size with a 300-acre facility, a population of approximately 550 campers each session, and a staff of over 225 exceptional role models

We are pleased to share the news that URJ Camp Harlam is one of four camps selected to participate in a pilot program of the Foundation for Jewish Camp, generously funded by the Ruderman Family Foundation, to enhance and expand our efforts to support campers with disabilities at Camp Harlam.

URJ 6 Points Sports Academy offers intensive high quality sports instruction while providing individualized attention to each athlete. In fact, we’ve got a line-up of passionate sports camp coaches and counselors to help. Our programs are open to athletes entering grades 4 through 11.

Athletes take their game to a whole new level! Our unique approach to Jewish education promotes Jewish identity building throughout the course of each day. Our campers not only improve their athletic abilities, they build self-confidence, strong connections to their peers and grow into proud Jewish athletes.

URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy is where scientific inquiry meets fun! Campers entering grades 5-10 spend two weeks exploring robotics, video game design, environmental science, digital media, and a host of other fun activities in a friendly setting with boys and girls who share similar interests. Throughout their experience, campers explore what Judaism means to them—and how this complements their interests in science and technology. Campers gain an understanding of their place in the long history of the Jewish people’s contributions to science and technology, and build a strong connection to Israel as an incubator of innovation. 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy is the Reform Jewish camp that curious minds have been waiting for.

URJ 6 Points Creative Arts Academy: Mentored by the best in their field, young artists are drawn together in a dynamic community to experience camp, explore their passions, and improve their skills in culinary arts, dance, instrumental or vocal music, theatre, and visual arts. Our campers experience all that the Creative Arts Academy has to offer in our 12 day sessions. From arts majors and minors, electives and kinesthetic arts (recreational activities) to all-camp programs that build community, a session of camp helps campers advance skills, discover new passions and make friends that could last a lifetime, while also growing as individuals.

Camp can be expensive. Contact Joe Slade to learn about the financial support Temple Sinai can offer.
