A 2-week camp provides additional time for your camper to acclimate to the camp experience, establish deeper relationships with their cabin group, spend more time with their staff leader (who can invest additional time mentoring them), participate in more outdoor recreation, have a longer period of time with less distraction from the outside world and more time to hear from God.
After 1-week campers leave on Saturday morning, the 2-week campers participate in supervised and staffed off-site activities on Saturday afternoon. Activities vary from year to year but examples include bowling, swimming, laser tag, movie, etc. All activities are covered in the registration cost. Sunday morning worship is Camp Church where our staff lead worship and a devotion. Before the next week’s 1-week campers arrive Sunday afternoon, 2-week campers enjoy some time of relaxation, recreation and cabin group conversation after Sunday lunch.

We welcome campers and their families to visit during an Open House (March, April and May) from 2 to 4 p.m. for come-and-go walking tours of our facilities. Also meet the camp director and some of the summer staff. No reservation is needed! Exact dates for 2018 will be published in January.
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.
