Deerfoot’s history has been about God’s faithfulness in expanding one man’s vision to build godly men. Today, men all over the world see Deerfoot as a significant influence in their lives. In a world where many boys ‘fail to launch’, boys and young men need a place like Deerfoot more than ever.We decided to act after facing a capacity challenge for more than a decade, leaving many would-be campers (even returning campers) on wait lists. The DL Blue Campaign began in 2016. Our goal is $16.2 million dollars to open a second Deerfoot Lodge camp in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, without incurring any long-term debt.S 

As of March 2019, we’ve raised 70% of the goal, which has allowed us to purchase 340 pristine acres in Glenville, NC (Cashiers, NC region) and launch Deerfoot Lodge Blue Ridge the summer of 2019. Additional funding of $5M is needed to complete the camp. Read on to see the progress so far, what remains to be done, and how you can help.
