Friday 5 p.m. to Sunday 11 a.m.

Ages 5 & up.

Connect with the heart and passions of your daughter
So you want to create special memories with your daughter, but don’t get many opportunities to escape your busy life? The Mother-Daughter Getaway Weekend has everything planned for you — exciting activities, adventure recreation, meals, speaker sessions and more — providing a unique opportunity for exceptional fun and real connection. Deer Run’s private 100-acre scenic property with first-class accommodations just south of Franklin, TN is a perfect setting for your special time together.

Make this a multi-generational experience by bringing a grandmother. Aunts or mentors are encouraged to attend with girls whose mom is unable to attend or with girls who do not have a mom.

2018 GUEST SPEAKER: Terra Tucker, M.M.F.T., is a writer, speaker, teacher, and marriage and family therapist. She is the 2001 Mrs. TN America and founder of CNC Ministries (ie, Confidence in Christ) which host conferences that focus on building a Biblical foundation for girls and women of all ages. She teaches on generational blessings and encourages believers to embrace their true identity as children of God — daughters and sons of the King. A devoted wife and mother of three, Terra is intentionally striving to build a Godly heritage and is passionate about equipping others to do the same.

SPEAKER SESSIONS: Throughout the weekend, Terra will focus her teaching on Isaiah 61:3 … “to bestow on them a crown of beauty.” Her sessions speak to the hearts of all ages.

2018 THEME: Experience Hawaii at Deer Run as we transform the stage and dining room with beautiful Hawaiian-themed decor.

GIRL FUN: After the sun goes down on Friday, the glow-night luau begins followed by a movie & popcorn. On Saturday, express your creativity with Hawaiian themed craft time, and for Saturday night dinner come dressed in your Hawaiian attire (optional) and enjoy learning basic hula dancing after the speaker session!

MOM & DAUGHTER SESSIONS: Saturday morning begins a reflective personal devotion time for moms and daughters. Then moms and daughters spend time in sessions designed just for them: Kate Watkins has a unique session designed for the moms, older girls have a session much like the mom session which is led by college-age leaders, and younger girls work on a special project. Afterwards, everyone comes together for an encouragement and learning session led by our guest speaker. Sunday morning includes worship (relates to all ages) and a special time for a mother-daughter blessing.

TOGETHERNESS THROUGH RECREATION: On Saturday afternoon, relationships grow stronger as you bond through your choices of recreation: archery, BB guns, restorative yoga, climbing tower, giant swing, hiking, scavenger hunt, lake time with kayaking, canoeing, fishing or relaxing on the beach. Saturday evening includes stargazing on blankets, a nighttime wagon ride and campfire & s’mores. Note: Other lake activities — swimming, zip line, aqua park, waterslide — will be open if weather permits.
