May 17 Summer Staff Arrival

Howdy folks,

It’s been a while since we’ve posted here. That’s because we’ve been busy. Very, very busy.

As I type this, I’m sitting in the room with the 2014 Look Up Lodge Summer Staff as we work through and explain the mission and vision of Look Up. It’s pretty crazy. It’s crazy, because we’ve been busy.

Let me explain.

Look Up Lodge Summer Camp Staff preparing

Proof that this is real time!

For months, the year-round staff of Look Up Lodge spends hours and hours and hours, under the¬†guidance of the Holy Spirit, working hard, praying, running into roadblocks, having breakthroughs, coming up with new ideas, returning to old ones, arguing with each other, supporting each other, and desperately trying to discern God’s will for the summer program so that His name will be made famous and His truth will be known.. We are very busy preparing, preparing, preparing. And then…

Then, twenty-four Summer Staffers arrive and we spend two weeks handing it all over to them.

They are the front lines of everything we do during the summer. They are carefully selected and hired with intense purpose, so that we can train them and entrust them with a ton of responsibility and and a monumental task.

We trust that they will spend their summer under the guidance of the Holy Spirit working really, really hard, praying, running into roadblocks, having¬†breakthroughs, coming up with new ideas, returning to old ones, arguing with each other, supporting each other, and desperately trying to discern God’s will for the summer program so that His name will be made famous and His truth will be known.

It’s a crazy time. We can’t wait to share it with you.

Feb 3 Look Up Lodge’s Not Quite Super Bowl Commercial

Hi there,

Did you watch the Super Bowl last night? If so, you might have ended the night pretty disappointed. Maybe your team got pummeled. Maybe your team won, but they didn’t make it very interesting. Maybe the ads didn’t live up to what you hoped they would be. Maybe you had already seen all the Super Bowl commercials because most of them were online days before the game because the internet is weird. Maybe you’re not quite sure why a fourth Transformers movie is necessary.

Either way, we have the cure for what ails ya. Read More


Nov 7 Summer Camp Planning Retreat 2014

Last week, the Look Up Lodge Program Team headed for the hills of North Carolina to get away for a couple of days and continue planning for Summer 2014 and beyond.

It was an incredibly fruitful time and we can’t wait to share everything that we have planned with you. God blessed us with a lot of guidance, a great deal of laughter, and some amazing perspective. I think that we all came back with a clearer vision of how God wants to use Look Up in the years to come, and it is incredibly exciting. Read More
