God opened a door and provided the way for us to purchase an additional 56 acres of adjoining property to expand and reach more people for His kingdom. Currently we are installing
infrastructure on this additional property (our west campus) - water, sewer, and underground electric lines - and we are remodeling existing facilities on the property so they can be useful for camp expansion.
We estimate that approximately 12 to 15 million dollars is needed in the next three to five years to sustain our growth.
For two summers, nearly all our camp sessions have been full and have waiting lists. Thus, we need more facilities and more recreation options. This is the largest opportunity in our 24-year
history that God has given us - we do not want to miss it!
• Road improvements and 18 cabins
• basketball gym, swimming pool, pickleball courts,
wiffleball field, and sand volleyball
• The Refuge: a multi-purpose building with 500-seat
auditorium, 400-seat dining hall with commercial kitchen,
health center, and additional small meeting space

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Deer Run has been blessed to experience consistent growth over the last ten years. For the past six years, we have also consistently operated in the black from generated revenue. We are committed to controlling our expenses through proper budgeting to insure that we are self-sustaining from an operational standpoint. This commitment allows us to allocate 100% of donations to either capital improvements or scholarships for children or families in need.
