At Look Up Christian Camps we know that you want to be an equipped leader that pours energy and wisdom into your group. Maybe you would like to do that, in part, through a retreat. The problem is, your group needs a plan and a place to do that.
We believe that you as a leader should be able to focus on your group and experience rather than dealing with the logistics of your stay. Life doesn’t make planning a retreat easy which is why for over 60 years we have been helping groups just like yours leave feeling rested, equipped and restored.
Look Up Lodge Christian Camps are a group of Non-Denominational, Non-Profit Christian Camps. Our camps are located in both North and South Carolina and have been serving the south east for over 60 years. We host thousands of 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.
In addition, we recognize the critical role that leaders play in discipling the next generation and we want to help develop and support you. We are here as a resource for you; the people who are growing the next generation. Booking a spot for your group means you’ll have a new ministry partner who is passionate and dedicated to helping you fulfill God’s calling in your ministry year-round.
statement of faith
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.
Our goal at Look Up Lodge Christian Camps is to use the Christian camp and retreat experience not only for the benefit of youth, but to fully engage and equip professional and lay church leaders. This comes to pass as staff members motivated by His love and a desire to be of genuine service share their skills, their experience, their zest for wholesome fun, and their testimony about the more abundant life they are experiencing in Christ.
