At both Deerfoot Adirondacks and Deerfoot Blue Ridge, the season is divided into 2-week sessions. During each session, campers spend time learning outdoor skills, such as swimming, canoeing, camping, survival, and archery.

Campers also go on two overnight hikes in the surrounding wilderness areas, where they are given a chance to practice some of the outdoor skills learned in main camp. During this time, campers are immersed in a Christ-centered community in which they are actively encouraged, through relationship, prayer, worship, and the DL camping experience.
