Merry Week-Before Christmas!

With this little series, we’ve been sharing little snippets of what it is like to work a Summer Camp job at Look Up Lodge. So far, we’ve heard from former Summer Staffers Christabeth Vaughn and Will Hancock. If you missed either one of their entries, click their names above to catch up.

After hearing what they had to say, you can probably already tell that serving as a Look Up Lodge Summer Staffer is an incredibly meaningful and lasting experience. It really isn’t like any other summer job out there. So much is asked of these young men and women and God is so faithful in doing amazing work through them each and every year.

We see the multiplying fruit of this work as God uses the Staffers to make an impact on students at Summer Camp, who then develop a passion to give away what they have received. In lots of cases, that means that those same students are inspired to become Summer Staffers that will then go on to have an impact on thousands more students in the years to come.

For years before becoming part of our 2013 Summer Staff, Eleni Efaw was a summer camper at Look Up Lodge. Last year, Eleni joined the team and did an incredible job leading groups of children and teenagers into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Read More

I feel like I need to take a break after that last sentence…It was quite a mouthful and I invented a new word.

Ok. We’re back.
