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.
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.
Parents can rest assured that their camper will enjoy mealtime. Deer Run chefs use fresh ingredients for healthy, delicious kid-friendly meals. A full salad bar and fresh fruit are available each day.
