Why work at Deer Run Camps & Retreats:

Deer Run is an incredible place to work! Our staff is family. It is more than a place to work: it is a place to serve and a place to do life. God continues to bless Deer Run in unimaginable ways and getting to be a part of it by being on staff is amazing! There can be stress from the amount of work and passion we give to what we do, but the rewards of working in camp ministry together far out-weigh the stress. We LOVE what God allows us to do and we want/need more people to join our family!
