Deerfoot Lodge


At this Christian camp, boys are divided into three sections: Woodsmen (ages 8-11) and Pioneers (ages 12 and 13) are housed in cabins, while Indians (ages 14-16) live in teepees. All boys participate in two- or three-day hiking or canoeing trips, while experienced campers may embark on 12-day treks. Campers are immersed in a Christ-centered environment that includes fellowship, prayer and worship.
