Friend Request

We understand campers may desire to be together during their time at camp. We want all our campers to feel as comfortable as possible while also encouraging campers to make new friends. With that being said, we allow each camper 1 friend request for their time at camp. Both campers should have each other's names listed as their one friend request when submitting their online registration. Be sure to register at least 2 weeks before the camp start date to ensure your camper is placed with their friend.

Summer Camp Nurses

A registered nurse or a doctor is needed during each summer camp session: day camps, overnight camps and an overnight mission camp.

Deer Run shows appreciation for a camp nurse’s time and professional skills by providing a barter that can be used for payment towards summer camps or family events at Deer Run.
