"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. On the brink of a family crisis, Alex finds herself being sent to the last place she wants to be, summer camp. Knowing that a young admirer from school will be at the camp, Alex reluctantly agrees. But, thrown into a group of people she has never met, Alex is determined to shut the world out. However, she is brought out of the corners of her own heart by the most unlikely of friends: a horse. Only then 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 GodÌÎ_Ì´åÇs love.
"What a film this is! ItÌÎ_Ì´åÇs about growing up and also about coming to Jesus. Alex is a teen-aged 'mean girl' who goes to a Camp Harlow, and her life is soon changed. She doesnÌÎ_Ì´åÇt 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 girlÌÎ_Ì´åÇs 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." - Edwin L. Carpenter, The Dove Foundation
