Camp Deer Run
Camp Deer Run is 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.
Our overnight camps are the heart and soul of Camp Deer Run. We play hard, we sing loud, and we aren’t afraid to get a little muddy. We’re not here to provide manufactured fun. We’re here to let kids be kids in the beauty of God’s nature. Every summer, you’ll find 1,200+ campers having the most fun of their lives making skits, taking hikes, going outcamping, playing capture the flag, or flopping in the creek. Leave behind a world of constant connection and distraction for the “all about Jesus” atmosphere of Camp Deer Run.
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.
