To transform lives through a passionate relationship with Jesus Christ while connecting with others in a camp or retreat setting.
Deer Run Camps & Retreats is a God-inspired camp and retreat center planted on some of His most beautiful creation. Deer Run is nestled within the serenity of 100 acres of wooded property just 10 miles south of historic, downtown Franklin and just 15 minutes from the Natchez Trace.
Lodging facilities include The Lodge at Deer Run and Cedar Point Cabins. Families may reserve B&B rooms at The Lodge or individual cabins. Groups may reserve the entire lodge and/or cabins for a private retreat. Private retreats or meetings are customized to your needsâ€”meeting set up, meals, snack & beverage serviceâ€”and can include team building and/or recreation.
Faith, character-building, community and adventure are the cornerstones upon which Deer Run was founded in 1998, and while the â€œwhy we do itâ€ hasn't changed, the campers, events, staff, volunteers and budget have grown to reflect a thriving, year-round ministry.
Deer Run is a 501(c)(3) non-profit ministry, and is structured so that operating expenses are covered through program and facility fees. This allows us to allocate donated dollars exclusively to our Mission 42:1 Scholarship Fund and to the types of capital improvements necessary to expand the ministry.
It is impossible to meet the ongoing needs at Deer Run without the faithful financial support of individuals, families, sponsors and others who share our heart for using the beauty of God's creation to tell His story, glorify His name and impact lives for all eternity.
