Camp Lookout in 2023!

This year marked our 96th year of operation at Camp Lookout as we continue the camp tradition of fun and friendship overlooking the Mississippi River. 

We would like to give our heatfelt thanks to Case/New Holland of Burlington for their Community Impact Day at Camp in April. We are still in awe of what their crew of 53 accomplished in one day. Their time and effort is much appreciated.      

After finding an unforeseen problem with our pool this Spring, the camp was without a pool for the first few camping sessions. Thankfully prayers were answered in the form of a new liner. Just in time for a very hot summer. 

Then a terrible derecho storm hit camp and the surrounding area. While our staff and campers stayed safe inside our storm shelter the storm caused many downed trees and power lines, Thanks to the many people who came to our aid in opening and clearing our road and their many other acts of kindness. A special thanks goes to our caretaker, Pat Shaffer who went above and beyond his duties, as usual. 


The camping season is now concluded, but check back in the Spring of 2024 to register for next year. From gathering around the flagpole in the morning to the last embers of the campfire in the evening every day will be filled with activities sure to become treasured memories at Camp Lookout.
