A ministry that is building God’s Kingdom

Work Weekend

Each year, volunteers from across the country participate in work weekends at Deerfoot.  These work weekends are for adult volunteers who love the ministry of Deerfoot Lodge.  Scroll below to learn more about work weekends. Successful Work Weekend volunteers come with an attitude to serve and a desire to work hard. The food is fantastic, the setting is pristine, the fellowship is sweet, and the work will send you home tired! Trade experts and volunteers with skills are always needed, but there is plenty to do for the most ‘skill deficient person who is willing to work.

In addition to ten-hour workdays, work weekenders fellowship together around the Lord’s Table on Sunday a.m. This is a special time of communion together as we remember the death and suffering of our Lord Jesus Christ. For many, the time around the Table at DL is a treasured moment and a highlight of the weekend. Accommodations are rustic at both campsites. In most of the living areas of the camps, there is no electricity or running water. Bring a sleeping bag, warm clothing, and a working flashlight! Because of the nature of work around camp, children and pets are not invited (with few exceptions that are pre-approved by Chief Nick). Work Weekend registration will open approximately 6 weeks before the event.

Registration for the May 3-6, 2024 work weekend is open. For more info and to register follow this link.

Spring Work Weekend at Deerfoot Blue Ridge May 3-6

While Deerfoot rarely employs volunteers during summer programs, volunteers in other ways are what make this ministry thrive.  Every year, volunteers welcome Deerfooters into their homes for regional information events and alumni gatherings.  Others help to recruit godly men to work on staff, and still others build inroads for Deerfoot staff to speak at churches or schools to spread the word about what God is doing at camp.  To learn how you can help, contact us below.
