Who we are

ccca logoLook Up Lodge is a non-denominational, CCCA-affiliated camp and retreat center located in Travelers Rest, South Carolina. We serve youth, children, and adult groups from across the Southeast and beyond by offering transformational group-based summer camps, school year conferences, and custom retreat facilities.

With over 50 years of experience in Christian camping, we are experts in providing Biblical teaching and excellent programs that are effective, engaging, and a whole lot of fun. Whether you join us for a marriage retreat or Christian Summer Camp for teens or kids, you’ll find that time at Look Up Lodge will give you the opportunity to grow deeper in your relationship with the Lord, closer to others, and wider in your influence for Christ.

In addition to providing your group with the best camp or retreat experience that we possibly can, we are dedicated to serving youth leaders as a year-round ministry support center. We recognize the critical role that youth leaders play in discipling the next generation and we want to help develop and support you in any way we can. If you are a student pastor, senior pastor, or a part-time youth volunteer, our already low summer camp rates include a lot more than just an unforgettable week of camp for you and your group. You will have a new ministry partner who is passionate and dedicated to helping you fulfill God's calling in your ministry year-round.


We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed.

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as the sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on high, He now sits as our High Priest and Advocate.

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

We believe that humanity came into existence by direct creation of God and that humanity is uniquely made in the image and likeness of God. Tempted by Satan, man rebelled against God and fell from his sinless state. Being severed from the Creator and subject to His divine wrath, man is depraved and utterly hopeless with no remedy to help himself. 

God creates each person as male or female, as two distinct, complementary genders who together reflect the image and nature of God. These distinctions are divinely inspired and are essential to fully understanding the nature of God. We believe that marriage is originally and continues to be defined by God in Scripture as the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive, covenant commitment for a lifetime. Furthermore, it is God alone who has ultimate authority to prescribe and describe the marital relationship.  We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman in the sacred context of marriage. Therefore, sexual immorality, defined as any sexual activity outside the boundaries of this marriage relationship, is clearly and expressly prohibited by the Lord.

Salvation is a free gift of God provided by His grace alone, through faith alone, in the finished work of Christ alone.

We believe in the personal, visible, bodily return of Jesus, and the bodily resurrection of the dead—of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
