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.


SOS member

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!


Senior Counselor '20

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.
