    Camp Lookout and the Places we Play!

    The camp itself is on a heavily wooded, hilly peninsula bounded by Lower Herring Lake and Lake Michigan. Water activities take place in both lakes. There is no vehicle access to the camp; access for campers is by pontoon boat from our parking lot on the north shore.

    What parents and campers say

    "Being at camp, for me, has been what it feels like to be alive. I can be whomever I want, be free, speak my mind, and I am happy and laugh so much more than I do at home. It has made me capable of learning other people's point of view, opening myself to allow others to learn about me, and I know what it feels like to feel pure, unhindered joy."
    - Camper from session C
    "I really like the free time and all the time outdoors. I love that they can help create their own activities. The creativity, free-time, and rustic atmosphere is why I picked this camp. My son is begging me to sign him up for next year."
    - Parent from Session D
    "The feeling of acceptance and a stronger self worth. My child felt they could be the person they wanted to be, without the pressures of conformity that they experience at school"
    - Parent from Session B

    Family of Programs

    Camp Lookout is part of a family of programs, Camp Carvela, and Crystalaire Adventures. All three programs, which are run by the same team differ slightly in their daily approach, share the same philosophical foundation. All three organizations focus on experiential learning in supportive communities with an emphasis on creating positive connections. More can be found on our philosophy page.
