DEEPER FAITH. GREATER ADVENTURES. Deer Run is a traditional camp — situated on 100 acres of scenic wooded property — where everyday distractions are removed enabling campers to discover their strengths, explore new adventures, forge friendships and complete challenges.

Passionate staff and counselors lead your child to authentically grow in faith, character, confidence, respect and leadership. The staff-to-camper ratio is higher than required standards allowing for closer supervision, deeper relationships with the counselors and other campers, plus a more powerful camper experience.

Registration includes ALL activities, a themed camper shirt and a link to download a video of your camper’s session.
Deer Run is a nondenominational, Christian camp located 35 miles south of Nashville and 10 miles from historic downtown Franklin.
