Staff applications are available!
Notice some changes have been made regarding our positions and application
process. We have done some restructuring of positions and position titles
so make sure you read the description of each position carefully. We feel
this restructuring better suits our mission as a staff.
What counselors are saying:
I’ve loved getting to work at camp throughout the years, but the thing I might love the most is all of the new relationships that were created that will last beyond camp.
My favorite part of being at Camp Harlow this summer was getting to pour myself into every camper and develop relationships with the staff. I felt that I really got the chance to push myself outside of my comfort zone and deepen my faith!
This summer I grew so much in trusting God with uncertain circumstances. Throughout this summer, we got to see God work in ways that we never thought would’ve been possible.
CITS (Formerly CAPS): 13-14 year olds
As we have been restructuring our application process, some changes have been made regarding our positions. Our position for 13-14 year olds, formerly known as the CAP Program, will now be called Counselors-in-Training or “CIT’s.” The job responsibilities of our 13-14 year staff (formerly known as “CAP’s”) will remain the same, but we believe the name CIT better fits the position description. Counselors-in-Training are a vital part of the overall ministry at Camp Harlow. It is designed as a training program for 13 and 14 year old students, giving them a chance to assist and support counselors in leading campers at Day Camps. CITS play a very key role in our ministry and have a significant spiritual impact on the lives of their campers. This year CITs are invited to apply to work at
Spring Break Camp through this application as well. FILL OUT A CIT APPLICATION.
