“I am a PeeWee! A mighty mighty PeeWee…”
It is easy to find our PeeWees 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. PeeWee camp is a great opportunity for Camp Deer Run to partner with you to help your children establish a foundation in Christ.
PeeWee camp is for children ages 5 to 8 years old. During the summer there are 8 PeeWee sessions. A Pee Wee session takes place Monday through Thursday. PeeWee campers arrive to camp at 9 a.m. and their day of camp ends at 3 p.m. Each summer CDR is blessed to serve around 300 Pee Wee campers!
Peewee Daily Activities
PeeWee campers get to go swimming for about an hour every day. Puddle Jumper life jackets will be provided and required for all campers unless they complete the swim test: swim the length of the pool unassisted and without stopping. All swimming activities will always be supervised by two lifeguards.
Camp Deer Run is all about introducing kids to Jesus in a fun way. During PeeWee Bible Lessons, our staff will teach campers about the gospel in an exciting way that we hope will spark a lasting interest and love for the Lord.
Every day throughout the session, PeeWees get to work on a variety of crafts that they’ll take home at the end of the week. The crafts change every summer, but some favorites from the past have been bird feeders, bracelets, coloring books, and even backpacks!
Whether it’s playing in the creek, a water balloon fight, or a classic cowboy cookout, every day has a group game that revolves around the theme for the day. Check out the list below to see the PeeWee theme days.
Once a day, PeeWees will get to take a break and have a snack. We provide the snacks, so don’t worry about packing one!
For 30 minutes every day, PeeWee campers and staff will gather together to sing praises to God…the CDR way! With tons of fun songs that kids love, they’ll get to see that Jesus is FUN!
