Hoche Retreat

February 17 – 19

The Hoche Retreat is a perfect chance for our oldest campers to leave behind the worries of the school year to reconnect with their friends and counselors, have some good old fashioned Deer Run fun, and refocus on their relationship with God. All campers over 13 years old up to high school seniors are invited to join us for an awesome weekend of Camp!


October 4 – 6

All campers between the ages of 9 and 13 are welcome to join us for this fun-filled weekend of worship at Camp Deer Run. It’s a perfect time for our younger campers to take a step back from school and spend a weekend playing in the woods and reconnect with their favorite Camp friends and counselors!

Young Alumni Weekend

March 1 – 3

Life goes on when you finish your camper and staff days, we know that. Camp Deer Run was never meant to be the end all be all of anyone’s walk with Christ, but we hope that it will always be a touchstone for your faith. That’s what our alumni retreats are for – to give you a place to be rejuvenated, for your cup to be filled, and to spend some time with good friends. 


April 5-7

There’s nothing more special than the bond between a father and a son. God has a special design for father-son relationships to pass on a legacy of faith and provide a lifelong guide. At our father-son retreat, we’ll build and enrich these special relationships in true Deer Run style – with a weekend full of fun.

Mother-Daughter Retreat

September 6 – 8

This retreat is for all female campers from 9-17 and their mom to spend some quality time together building the special relationship that God has designed for them. We know that God works in profound ways through the mother-daughter relationship, so at our mother-daughter retreat, we build up these relationships the best way we know – with a weekend full of fun.
