Multi-Child or Multi-Session: $10 OFF EACH CAMPER when more than one child from the same household registers OR $10 OFF EACH SESSION when a camper registers for multiple sessions. This discount is not available for those receiving a scholarship. Group/Church Discount: A church leader must call (615) 208-3718 to receive a $10 OFF per camper promo code for your group or for individual church families to use during online registration.
We absolutely understand friends wanting to be together during their camp week! And we want all our campers to feel as comfortable as possible while also encouraging them to make new friends. With that being said, we allow each camper ONE friend request for their camp week. 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.
A REGISTERED NURSE or DOCTOR is needed during each summer camp session. 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. Apply or read more information regarding the requirements and training for Summer Camp Nurses. Questions? Email NurseManager@DeerRun.camp or call us at (615) 208-3718.
