Team Fun

The Leaders stayed up last night to draft teams for A session, so today was an exciting day at Camp Deerhorn. We had scrambled eggs, potatoes, and sausage for breakfast. We ended third period of activities early so that we could announce the teams and get team photos before lunch. Kids ran to the lodge […]

A Great Beginning

The sun was shining once again for our first full day of A session. Many kids were up bright and early this morning, playing basketball or tennis long before the bell rang at 7:15am. They are EXCITED! Breakfast this morning was french toast sticks and sausages, and lunch was Philly cheese steak sandwiches. After breakfast, […]

Hooray for A!

We are grateful that we woke to clear sunny skies for our opening day of A session. The 44 kids who stayed over from Father Son camp had a great time at the waterpark yesterday and were excited to greet all the arriving kids today. Breakfast was biscuits and gravy and scrambled eggs, and lunch […]

Ready For Fun!

Our second Father Son session ended this morning and it was a great one! We had breakfast at 8 of bacon, scrambled eggs, and potatoes, and then some dads stuck around for activities, which we had running until 11am. The morning of this changeover can be a little chaotic, trying to get koogees cleaned and […]


After yesterday’s weather, we were all thrilled to wake up this morning to sunshine and blue skies. It was a cool start to the day, but it quickly warmed up this afternoon and the waterfront was once again hopping. Sailing, skiing, Rave, waterslide, kayaks…all were busy all afternoon. Today was also our guided fishing day […]

A Little Bit of Rain

We like to say it doesn’t rain at Camp Deerhorn, but we also want to live the Creed and Speak the Truth. 😉 The day dawned cool and cloudy, and it rained all morning at camp. By early afternoon, however, the rain had stopped and it warmed up just a little. During these rainy days, […]

Round Two

We were greeted by a day of beautiful sunshine to welcome our second round of Father Son campers today. This session has a lot of Deerhorn alumni and dads who have been with us at Father Son camp for almost a decade. We love greeting old friends, but we are also glad to welcome new […]


We have really lucked out with the weather around here. It rained during dinner last night, but quit right after dinner so that we could play Capture the Flag and have the campfire outside. It turned out to be a beautiful evening, and we once again were lucky to be surrounded by great entertainment by […]

More Sunshine and Smiles

Today dawned cooler than yesterday but the sun shone all day. The beach wasn’t quite as popular today with the cooler temperatures, but all of our other activities were hopping. The craft shop stayed busy with dads and sons making some creative projects together. Riflery and archery were busy, as always! Sports and Games played […]

Our 90th Year

Welcome to the summer of 2019! It’s finally here and we are off and running. We couldn’t have asked for a better day to kick off our 90th season. It was cloudy this morning, but by this afternoon the skies were blue and the sun shone and smiles were seen all around camp. Today started […]
