The Fun of a Koogee

We managed to get a few fun groups of photos over the past few days. We announce at one of the meals that we are taking brother pictures and that anyone who wants their photo taken with their brother, cousin, or friend, can come. If you didn’t see your sons in those photos, it means […]

The Fun Continues

Today’s weather has been really weird. It’s sunny, then it storms for five minutes. It’s sunny, then it’s dark and we hear thunder. It makes activities a little tricky, because we want to either run regular activities or go with the rainy day plan. But it makes it tough when it keeps constantly changing! Breakfast […]

More Sports and Games

Today was another beautiful day at Camp Deerhorn. Breakfast was french toast sticks and sausage, lunch was sub sandwiches, and dinner was penne with meat sauce, caesar salad, and homemade bread. Activities are in full swing, as campers work for stars and just plain old have fun! They have six activities Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, […]

Fred, one of our chefs, woke up at 2am to come in and make 27 dozen homemade cinnamon rolls for […]

The Excitement of Teams

The Leaders drafted late last night, so this morning we announced teams after third period of activities. Kids are always excited to find out what teams they are on, and tonight will be all-camp Scalp to kick off team competition for D session. But that’s not the only fun happening around camp. Breakfast was pancakes […]


We just finished C session, a session with only about 8 first-year campers and over 100 teenagers. Many kids straggled late to breakfast because they often slept until first call for breakfast at 7:50am. By the end of the session, some of the teenagers need a little more convincing to get to their activities on […]

More Fun Ahead!

Our opening day of D session dawned bright and beautiful, ready for campers to arrive. The 18 kids who stayed over from C session had an amazing time at the zipline yesterday and woke up ready to greet lots of old friends and make new ones. We had scrambled eggs, hash browns, and toast today […]
