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.
Adjusted 2020 Schedule
In light of the most current information regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we have adjusted our summer schedule. All PeeWee day camp sessions have been cancelled, and all overnight sessions will now be one-week sessions. If we are able to have camp, overnight sessions will begin on June 21 with 3rd Session. Campers registered for 1st Session have been rescheduled to July 5 – 10, and 2nd Session to July 19 – 24. 4th and 5th Session will start on their scheduled dates, but will only run for one week instead of their typical two-week schedule. 6th Session will proceed as scheduled. A decision will be made as to whether we can implement this plan by June 1.
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.
