Synopsis

Camp Harlow tells the moving story of Alex, a teenage bully who spends her time lashing out at classmates and making their lives as miserable as she possibly can. Only when Alex has a chance encounter at a local Christian summer camp, does she finally receive the wake-up call she so desperately needs. But will it be enough to truly turn her life around or will she just return to her bullying ways once camp is over? Camp Harlow is a touching story of redemption and hope. A faith-based drama and a gentle reminder that there is no soul beyond the saving reach of God’s love.

Dove Review

What a film this is! It’s about growing up and also about coming to Jesus. Alex is a teen-aged “mean n girl” who goes to a Camp Harlow, and her life is soon changed. She doesn’t know it is a Christian camp when she first attends but she soon finds out. She initially goes to camp because she likes the boy who asks her to go.

She has an attitude before her conversion. For example, she tells one girl who gets into a bunk that she wants her to get out of it. She shoplifts and is mean spirited. She throws a girl’s property into the toilet.

A counselor is involved in her conversion and she is baptized. Her new attitude amazes everyone and she makes amends to those she offended. With themes of change and forgiveness, this is a good one to watch. We are approving it for all ages although it is not really intended for the very young. This might be a good DVD to encourage kids to attend camp.
