to Support the Ministry of Deer Run

God is Moving. Lives are Changing. Will You Make a Difference?


Deer Run Camps & Retreats is a God-inspired camp and retreat center planted on 100 wooded acres of some of God’s most beautiful creation.

Faith, character-building, community, and adventure are the cornerstones upon which Deer Run was founded in 1998, and while the “why we do it” hasn’t changed, the campers, events, staff, volunteers and budget have grown to reflect a thriving, year-round ministry.

Deer Run is a 501(c)(3) non-profit ministry and is structured so that operating expenses are covered through program and facility fees. This allows us to allocate donated dollars exclusively to our MISSION 42:1 Scholarship Fund and to the types of capital improvements necessary to expand the ministry.

It is impossible to meet the ongoing needs at Deer Run without the faithful financial support of individuals, families, sponsors and others who share our heart for using the beauty of God’s creation to tell His story, glorify His name and impact lives for all eternity.

Join the story by contacting David Gibson, Founder & CEO, at (615) 566-0026 or by email at DavidG@DeerRun.camp.
