Deer Run has been voted the #1 camp by area parents! During June and July, the 150-acre wooded private property just south of Nashville, Tennessee comes alive with campers participating in exciting outdoor adventures, unplugging from their electronics, and connecting with each other. Your preteens and youth experience “Deeper Faith, Stronger Relationships, and Greater Adventures” at Deer Run’s premier overnight camps. One-week camps are available for completed grades 3 to 10 and two-week camps for completed grades 6 to 10.

Campers are with their cabin group for most activities and come together with other cabin groups for games, worship, and an engaging, plus relevant, speaker session. Expect your camper to discover strengths, have loads of fun, forge friendships, complete challenges, and create lifelong memories — whether canoeing on Spring Valley Lake, zooming across the valley on the zip line adventures, laughing on the giant swing, playing games, or simply enjoying meals or cabin-time with new friends.

Our priority is to get to know each camper individually, listen to their heart, encourage them, and provide them with positive role models. Many campers and families are greeted by name year after year by camp staff and returning counselors.

Wishing you could go to camp with your kids and experience all the fun they are having? Well, you can! Check out our 2-night summer Family Camps which are an opportunity to be fully engaged with your kids in numerous recreational choices and a variety of family-strengthening activities. Get away from the busyness of your regular routine and spend focused time with each other to create long-lasting memories, share adventures, explore nature, and become powerfully united. This life-changing getaway is great for all ages.

We look forward to getting to know your family! Learn more at or call (615) 794-2918.
