2017 Team Comp from Camp Deerhorn on Vimeo.

Every year we pick four 16 year old campers to lead our four camp teams: the Wolves, Eagles, Bears, and Bobcats. These four boys have shown loyalty and service to Deerhorn and have proven themselves to already be leaders and role models.  Kids look up to these leaders as they strive to live their lives according to the Deerhorn Creed. (Note, our team names changed in 2023. We are proud of our history and traditions, but sometimes change is necessary.)

Even kids who aren’t as focused on competition enjoy being part of the team and competing together in the evening activities and Sunday afternoon all-camp events. They are proud to be part of their team, and wear their colors proudly.


Each camper can also earn stars in each activity: red, blue, & gold. The points earned help him earn a patch at the end of the session, and also contribute toward the team total. Many kids report that the team competitions are their favorite part of camp.
