Deerfoot’s camper fee covers 75% of the cost of operations. The difference comes from generous donors who contribute to help make the camper fee more manageable.
Camper families who need additional scholarship help in order to come to camp, are invited to reach out to the camp director. We maintain donor funded camper scholarship funds to help where needs exist.
Do you want to help make camp available to campers who cannot afford the camp fee? Contribute to the General Fund or/and Camper Scholarships here. Contributions to Deerfoot are tax-deductible. For more information about supporting Deerfoot, visit our contributions page.
Father & Son Weekend
Deerfoot Lodge Blue Ridge is hosting a Father/Son weekend in April 12, 13, 14, 2024. Detail coming in the Spring.
June 10 - August 6
The Guide program is an eight-week program at Deerfoot Lodge designed to produce growth in servant- leadership and godly living. It is a wilderness discipleship program for 17 and 18-year-olds that teaches and encourages us to be men who walk with Jesus. The basic parts of the application process include a written application, an evaluation form by a Deerfoot counselor or Section Chief, three other reference forms, and interviews.
Invitations to apply will be sent in November 2022.
Contact Chief Nick for Details
In this special program, campers are provided an extensive tripping experience. The Voyageur Program is designed to offer a high degree of challenge which will greatly sharpen wilderness skills, build self-confidence and strengthen a young man’s relationship with God. Applicants must have previous Deerfoot experience and/or demonstrated aptitude for the trip.
Voyagers need reliable rain gear, and appropriate clothing for their trips, but all specialized equipment, including dry-bags and backpacks is provided by Deerfoot.
These trips are challenging and campers who sign up must arrive at camp in shape; ready for 2 weeks of strenuous activity.
Many Voyager campers stay at Deerfoot for a month so that they can experience a session as a Mountaineer as well as a session on the trail as a Voyager.

Deerfoot is committed to making camp available to everyone. Scholarships are need-based and have been established to help families with challenging financial situations get their sons to camp. If your son wants to attend, the first step is to complete the online registration. Once you have a spot at camp please e-mail the registrar, Martha (email@example.com). She will send you the scholarship application form.
