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. Each activity — whether it be canoeing on Spring Valley Lake, zooming across the valley on the zip line adventures, laughing on the giant swing, playing group games on the field, or simply enjoying some down time — is an opportunity for campers (and families) to be encouraged and connect on a deeper level with each other.
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 (age 5 through completed grade 5) and ADVENTURE DAY CAMPS (completed grades 6-8) are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with an option for extended care hours from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Drop campers off as early as 7:30 a.m. for morning games without paying for extended care.
If you need the convenience of bus transportation, Deer Run provides seven area locations.
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.
