Camp Deer Run
We are a Christian summer camp in East Texas that exists to provide a camping experience where God is seen, His love is felt, and lives are transformed into the image of Jesus Christ.
Register for 4:12 Retreat!
1 Timothy 4:12 says “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young.” The 4:12 retreat is a full weekend of Camp that is all about our younger campers. Many of our Summer Staff will be returning for the retreat to continue their roles as counselors, and we have prepared a full schedule of camping activities for the retreat. Group Bible, Canteen, Quiet Time, Hymn Time and Ball Games will all be a part of the experience. We hope to have a full camp for this retreat so remind all your camp friends to attend!
Start Planning for Next Summer
The summer of 2019 was an incredible one, to say the least. We can’t think of any better way to close up Camp for the year than to start getting ready for next summer! The schedule for the summer of 2020 is here, so mark your calendars and don’t forget to register when January rolls around. Check back often for more information about registration dates. Thank you to everyone who joined us this summer. We’ll see you next year!
Camp Deer Run provides an energetic, Christ-centered atmosphere for over 1,300 campers each summer. Camp Deer Run is not just an ordinary camp for kids. People, young and old, refer to Camp Deer Run as “home” and as a place that greatly impacted their walk with God. During each session campers have fun together as they enjoy non-stop time with God. Campers leave behind a world of constant connection and distraction as they enter into an “all about Jesus” atmosphere where they can simply experience God.
Pee Wee Day Camp
“I am a Pee Wee! A mighty mighty Pee Wee…” It is easy to find our Pee Wees during the summer, you hear them chanting their song as they move through activities. Swimming, crafts and Bible lessons are all a part of the fun. Pee Wee camp is a great opportunity for Camp Deer Run to partner with you to help your children establish a foundation in Christ.
