3130 Highway 157Rising Fawn, GA 30738This summer’s theme is A New Creation, based on 2 Corinthians 5:17, which says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone and the new is here!” (NIV). Our campers will learn how to love what God is creating in and through them. Our hope is that after one week at summer camp, each camper will return home with a renewed sense of value as a child of God. Come and see how God is making a new creation! @CAMPLOOKOUTGAREGISTER NOWvisit camplookout.comor call 423.929.9037or 706.820.11631

3PRE-CAMP INFORMATION AND HEALTH SCREENING | Each camper and staff will receive updated information on established protocols to help mitigate COVID-19 at Camp Lookout as well as pre-screening surveys prior to on-site health screening at check-in. Out of an abundance of care and precaution, campers with pre-existing conditions for complications with COVID-19 as dened by the CDC are strongly discouraged from attending camp this summer. COHORT GROUPS | Each cabin will function as a group for the week. They will eat meals together, participate in activities as a group, enjoy Bible study and worship as a small group, and only interact with other groups while physically separated by no less than 6 feet. DAILY CLEANING | We will increase our cleaning protocols so that each building is cleaned daily, and necessary equipment is cleaned after each use.Camp Lookout is dedicated to continuing the quality program campers and parents have come to expect and experience each summer. COVID-19 protocols will change the way we run our day-to-day camping program. These changes will help us limit and hopefully eliminate exposure to COVID-19 at Camp Lookout. In the event of severe restrictions and/or elevated risks to campers and staff due to COVID-19, cancellation of some or all weeks is a possibility. The safety and well-being of every camper and staff is our top priority.SUMMER CAMPAND COVID-19:OTHER PROACTIVE MITIGATING FACTORS | Camp capacity has been reduced by 50%. Campers and staff will wear face masks in space shared by other cabin groups, when activities require non-avoidable close contact, and during transition times throughout the day. Each of our programs have been modied to comply with CDC, state/local, and Holston Conference guidelines. WHAT HAPPENS IN THE EVENT OF POSSIBLE COVID-19 EXPOSURE | If a camper or staff member develops COVID-19 symptoms, a parent/guardian will immediately be contacted, and they will be sent home. In the event of a COVID-19 positive camper or staff member, we will notify those exposed and actively participate in health department contact tracing.Camp Lookout protocols and policy are available for review at

Weeks are age-specic. All activities and night programs are planned to provide the best experience possible for your camper’s age group. Each age group has something a little different to offer. Residential camps are 4 nights and 5 days of camp fun and excitement.Campers get to choose their preferred type of activities before coming to camp and will be assigned to cohort groups consisting of campers that have the same type of activity interest. These small groups will live in the same cabin, eat meals together, and participate in Bible studies and activities as a group (see page 13). With cohort groups physically distanced from each other, campers will experience high-energy worship, singing, and evening events.YOUNGER ELEMENTARY3rd-4th GRADE | $445Resident4

To help ensure that each camper has the opportunity to experience their desired activities, an activity interest survey will be gathered from each camper (via email and/or phone) prior to the start of camp. This will allow our staff to group campers with similar interests into the same cohort group to help maximize their camp experience. Campers are eligible for grade level activities based on their grade entering the fall of 2021, plus all earlier grade level activities. Please note that there are more activities than can possibly be completed in a session of camp.
