What We Do

Camp Lookout's program of activities includes nature studies, arts and crafts, swimming and canoeing, and individual and team sports. Our program also includes cooperative games and activities such as the Field of Awareness, a series of stations with physical activities that require individual and group cooperation to succeed. Structured cabin time for reading aloud and thoughtful discussions in a caring environment. Through a variety of wholesome, fun, and challenging acitvities campers gain self awareness and confidence, build group trust, and develop valuable life skills necessary for positive, productive relationships with peers, family members, and other adults in their lives.
As an extension of our camper program, we also provide a Counselor-in Training (CIT) program for youth, ages 14-16. Each summer, approximately seventy CIT 's will spend a week or more at camp working under the trained staff, developing their own leadership skills while helping to facilitate camp activities. Annually approximately two thirds of our CIT 's are former campers and two thirds of our counselors are former CIT 's.

Each summer, Madison County Children's Camp, under the guidance of Hospice of Central New York, also provides a bereavement weekend of support and activities for teenagers who are coping with the loss of a significant person in their lives. Grief Weekend is funded each summer by the Montei Foundation in Columbus, Ohio.
