Camp Harlow History

Over 70 years ago, Frank and Gertrude Harlow generously donated 200 acres of land to First Baptist Church to be set aside for ministry to children.  Original plans called for an orphanage, but the state, at that time, was transitioning toward the foster system.  Therefore, the plan for a children’s camp was set in motion.

For seven decades, Camp Harlow has been providing a fun, safe, welcoming environment where kids can come to camp to play, laugh, grow and learn of God’s great love.

We continue to be amazed as God’s blessings continue to grow at Camp Harlow, year after year.
