SUMMER CAMP NURSES

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 Amanda at (615) 440-1434 if you have questions.

Year-Round Volunteers

Throughout the year there are many opportunities to volunteer at Deer Run including such areas as serving meals, construction and helping with events. The dates and times for these opportunities are updated on a regular basis.

To volunteer or if you have questions, email Volunteer@DeerRun.camp or call/text Josh Barrera’s cell (615) 484-5370 or call his office (615) 794-2730.
