Personnel

Camp Lookout is staffed by campus personnel and students. It operates under the umbrella of Christian Ministries with the Dean of Christian Ministries giving leadership to the camp director. The camp director is on duty at all times.

Leadership responsibilities are given to a male and female student coordinator selected by the camp director. Beyond that, approximately 35 college students are interviewed, selected, and trained to serve as counselors. Camp Lookout has a host of additional campus personnel that assist with the operations of camp. These include but are not limited to: administration; food service, landscaping; laundry; medical clinic; construction and maintenance.

The counselor to camper ratio is one counselor to six children.

The camp personnel go through a week of intense training just prior to camp. Counselors are also trained in First Aid and CPR. Counselors serving as lifeguards have gone through Red Cross certification. Many counselors serve in consecutive years.

Campers are shuttled to different activities in college-owned vans with counselors passing driving examinations administered by the college security department.

Before camp begins, all preparation is done through the Community Service program office. The camp director is also the director of that program. A student office worker will man the camp office once camp begins.
