Located on 100 wooded acres, Deer Run Camps focus on HAVING FUN, BEING ADVENTUROUS, UNPLUGGING, and CONNECTING. No matter what type of camp you choose, everyone experiences days filled with discovering strengths, forging friendships, and completing challenges while creating life-long memories! Deer Run makes it a priority to actively engage each camper and create an environment in which they are free to enjoy the outdoors. Our counselors and staff are the heart of Deer Run and a large part of what makes your child's experience amazing. Your kids do not get lost in the crowd; they are known. Smaller camp groups allow campers to form authentic and deeper friendships. DAY CAMPS and ADVENTURE DAY CAMPS are Monday through Friday.

Day campers enjoy lake activities, pedal kart races, recreational games, BB guns, archery, crafts, a 45-ft climbing tower, obstacle course, creek wading, nine-square-in-the-air, gaga ball, carpetball, tetherball, playground, fun songs, and interactive age-appropriate small group Bible study. Adventure Day campers are grouped into small learning groups during their wilderness skills time to participate in shelter building, fire starting, knot tying, navigation, archery, and more! They also enjoy lake activities, leap of faith, carpetball tournaments, and large group games.

OVERNIGHT CAMPS are one-week, six- night sessions for preteen, middle and high school students who have completed grades 3-12 or two-week sessions for ages 12-14. Each activity throughout the week provides unique opportunities to encourage campers to become confident and remain grounded and strong when life's challenges arise. Cabin groups participate in small group activities including zip line adventures, a 45- ft climbing tower, paintball, archery range, rec games, leap of faith, giant swing, archery tag, lake activities, age-appropriate Bible study, and more. All cabin groups come together for the cardboard boat regatta race, music, worship and a dynamic, challenging speaker. Campers also choose one track for the week to develop abilities in areas such as fishing, wilderness skills, self-defense, drama, percussion, and ukulele.

FAMILY CAMPS are an all-inclusive, everything-planned-for-you, life-changing experience for all ages where you can unplug from the busyness of your regular routine and spend focused time with each other while having loads of fun. Enjoy recreation, games, relaxation, upscale lodging, and delicious meals! Each family has a personal college- age or young adult who assists with your kids when needed. We also offer two Single Parent Family Camp sessions that are designed specifically for those who are parenting alone.
