YOUTH OVERNIGHT SUMMER CAMPS

near Nashville, TN

Deer Run Youth Camps ARE VOTED A #1 Overnight Camp Experience!

Overnight Camp at Deer Run = GAME CHANGER.

1-WEEK CAMPS for youth who have completed grades 6 to 12
2-WEEK CAMPS for ages 12-15

Check-in on Sunday, 4:00-4:30 p.m.
Camp Closing & Check-out on Saturday, 10:00-10:30 a.m.

Located on 100 wooded acres, Deer Run Camps focus on having fun, being adventurous, unplugging, and connecting. Everyone experiences days filled with creating new friendships, discovering strengths, and making memories that will last a lifetime.

Students who come to Deer Run leave with direction, new friendships, and a deeper understanding of who they are. In a world where preteens, middle schoolers, and high schoolers have such difficulty making meaningful connections, Deer Run offers a place where students can truly engage with each other …technology free! They’re given space to explore, laugh, and rest, away from the constant social media/screen drain.

Whether flying across the zip lines, enjoying some paintball games, or developing their fishing skills, students are encouraged and cared for by our incredible counselors and are deeply connecting alongside their peers.

Our counselors and staff are the heart of Deer Run and a large part of what makes your child’s experience amazing. They genuinely love spending time with campers. They listen with understanding and get to know each camper. Deer Run campers do not get lost in the crowd. Smaller camper groups allow campers to form authentic and deeper friendships; in fact, many campers are greeted by name year after year by returning counselors.

Middle and high school camps take place at the same time. However, campers are in cabin groups by age for activities, Bible study, and recreation; then come together for large groups games, individual tracks, worship, and daily speaker session.

PRICING • DATES • AVAILABILITY: 2020 YOUTH 2-WEEK OVERNIGHT CAMPS

AGES 12-15

A 2-week camp provides additional time for your child to acclimate to the camp experience, establish deeper relationships with their cabin group, spend more time with their staff leader (who invests 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.

  • $1,649 includes a $200 non-refundable deposit per camper for each session
  • Affordable monthly payments. (Monthly payments are only for registrations that come in prior to May.)
  • Registration includes ALL activities (no add-on pricing), a camper shirt, and a link to a video of your camper’s session that you can download.
  • Photos from the camp week are available throughout the camp session.

FRIEND REQUESTS: Day Camp Small Group or Overnight Cabin Group

Bringing friends with you makes a week at camp even more fun!

DAY CAMPERS
Day Campers can request as many friends as they would like (no limit) — as long as all friends are within one-year of age of each other. The older camper will be added to the younger camper's group.

OVERNIGHT CAMPERS
Our intent is to create the best environment and experience possible for all campers — those coming alone or with friends. We believe choosing to limit cabin requests to 6 campers per cabin sets the cabin up for success — providing an opportunity for unity within the whole group and with the counselor.
    If you have more than 6 campers in your friend group, we suggest splitting into two groups. For requests above 6 per cabin, call the office at 615.794.2918. We will do our best to accommodate when possible!

  • Invite up to 5 friends to be in your cabin … for a total friend group of 6 campers!
  • Camper friend requests may have up to a one year age difference. The older camper will be added to the younger camper's cabin group.
  • Cabins are divided into male cabins and female cabins.

HOW IT WORKS IN ONLINE REGISTRATION
Requests are made by using the “Friend Request” button in the "Camp Services" section of your online registration account.

Friend Requests MUST BE ACCEPTED NO LATER THAN ONE WEEK prior to the camp session start date.

  • From your account dashboard, click “View My Registrations.”
  • Find the current registration for your child and click on their name. You will find the Friend Request button on that screen.
  • Only ONE friend should initiate the Friend Request and the other(s) accept. You will need the name and email address associated with the friend’s account.
  • When making a request, an email with instructions will be sent on your behalf to the other
  • To accept a request, follow the same procedure above and then enter the code in the “Accept a Request” section.
FRIEND REFERRALS: THEY SAVE + YOU GET $20 FOR EVERY NEW CAMPER REGISTRATION!

After you register for camp, invite your friends!

  1. MUST BE A NEW CAMPER: To qualify as a referral, your friend must be part of a new camper family who has never attended a Deer Run camp or event before.
  2. GIVE FRIENDS THE CODES: Simply give them the Friend Referral Codes listed below so they receive a discount at check-out AND ask them to enter your name as the person who referred them to camp during the “How Did You Hear” section of registration.
  3. NOW, REFER MORE FRIENDS: After your friend registers as a referral, they can invite friends and also get $20 for every friend who registers and is part of a new camper family.

2020 Friend Referral Codes
     •  REF20DC:
$25 OFF Day Camp
     •  REF20ON:
$50 OFF 1-week Overnight Camp
     •  REF20TW:

*Discount codes cannot be combined with any other code.

How do I get my credit and how can it be used?

  • A family you referred to Deer Run Camps must be registered in order for you to receive the $20 credit. The Referring Family credits are processed on a weekly basis, thus they are not effective immediately.
  • This credit is in addition to any discounts you have already received, and there is no limit to how many referral credits you can receive!
  • Your credit MUST be used BY THE END OF YOUR WEEK OF CAMP or the credit will be forfeited.
    Your credit can be used in one of the following ways:
    1) automatically goes towards balance if camp week is not paid in full,
    2) applied to early registration for 2021 camps, or
    3) applied to register for a fall parent-child weekend — the August Father-Son Adventure Weekend or the September Mother-Daughter Getaway Weekend.
  • The referral credit cannot be used as a credit for the Camp Store.

CAMP DISCOUNTS

Multi-Child or Multi-Session Discount: $10 OFF each child when registering more than one child or for more than one session (this is for all events, except for Family Day)

Community Service Discount: 10% OFF for Military, First Responders, Teachers, Pastors, and Foster Families. To receive your discount code, email your ID/verification to Contact@DeerRun.camp.
