By the grace of God, we’re in a period of unprecedented growth and success in Camp Deer Run’s history. We’ve been witnesses to the largest fundraising campaign in CDR has ever seen, and we’re beginning to taste the fruits of it as we watch the new Mess Hall inch closer to completion every day. It is such a blessing to see how God, through this Deer Run Family, has enabled us to improve and expand the reach of our mission.
The new mess hall, along with the two new cabins we built before last summer, will allow us to continue welcoming record numbers of campers. We rejoice and praise God for that opportunity. However, we also recognize that to sustain this, we must continue to improve and update our facilities. As it currently stands, we’re still housing dozens of kids per session in 60-year-old cabins with barely enough room to walk through. For over a decade, we’ve had to house boys in a cabin that once served as a bathhouse. I believe that we can do better for those campers, that we can provide them with an even better experience, but we need your help.
This year we ask you to join us in raising $200,000 to build three new cabins before next summer, and to continue improvements to our current facilities.
Every improvement to the campgrounds that we’ve seen over the years has been funded by donations. It is only by God working through the generosity of the Deer Run family that we can accomplish all these things.
Together, we can continue to provide the uniquely simple and rustic environment of Camp Deer Run, but in a way that can sustain another 60 summers of Camp. Please consider making a gift in one of the amounts below to help the Deer Run experience last for generations to come.
There is another very powerful way that you can support Camp Deer Run.
The power of prayer is real and God has blessed CDR for decades through prayer. You can always pray for Camp. Pray that God will continue to bless this place and that it will always be a place that glorifies Him. For a more specific prayer list click here.
