Not Your Normal Summer Job…

Hello again!

If you haven’t heard, we are currently accepting applications for our 2014 Summer Camp Staff. It is an incredible opportunity that has changed many lives, both of the staffers themselves and the thousands campers on whom they make an impact. The application deadline is quickly approaching (January 31st!), so if you or someone you know wants apply, head on over to the Summer Staff page and download an application ASAP!

In the meantime, read what Danielle Koon said about what her first summer on staff at Look Up Lodge was like:

Being a summer staffer at Look Up Lodge has definitely been an amazing and new experience. I remember when I first applied, I didn’t think I had what it took to give up my entire summer to be constantly working and serving the campers and my Lord. I learned very quickly that it wasn’t going to be easy and that every day I was going to be challenged by something different; and I was.

It was a hard job, but I wouldn’t have spent my summer any other way. I was able to be a part of the lives of many campers and leaders and love them with all that I had, serve my God and grow a stronger relationship with Him, and gain long lasting friendships with 23 other amazing and dedicated summer staffers and the full time staff. I’m so blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of that experience, and I couldn’t have asked for a better summer.

Again, if you or someone you know wants to apply to join our 2014 Summer Staff team, you can find more information and a link to the application here. If you want more information, feel free to email our Staff Director, Walter Howard, at walter@lookuplodge.com or give us a call at 864.836.6392. Deadline to apply is January 31st!
