PRETEEN OVERNIGHT CAMPin Tennessee
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOR MY PRETEEN AT OVERNIGHT CAMP?
Being a preteen, and having a preteen, comes with challenges. A week at our overnight camp in Tennessee comes as a welcomed reprieve for parents and campers alike. Rest easy knowing your preteen gets to spend the week hanging out with counselors who are excellent role models and who truly have a heart for them. Then look forward to hearing all of the fun-filled, Spirit-led, and action-packed stories your preteen will be ready to rattle off when they return home.

CAMPER CARE PACKAGES & MAIL
Campers love receiving packages and mail from their family! You can get these to your camper in two ways:
1) Give to Deer Run staff at the check-in table on Sunday or
2) Mail to your camper during their week of camp.
To ensure your camper receives these while they are at camp, mail CARE PACKAGES no later than TUESDAY and LETTERS no later than WEDNESDAY.
Mail to: Deer Run Camps , Camper Name , 3845 Perkins Road , Thompson’s Station, TN 37179
AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE
$75 each way for Camper Pick Up or Drop Off at BNA (Nashville International Airport). Deer Run staff provide and supervise this transportation. Add this option during your online registration.
A registered nurse or a doctor is needed during each summer camp session — for both day camps and overnight camps. 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. Email NurseManager@DeerRun.camp or call (615) 209-9193 if you have questions.
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.
