Disclosure of Risk
Even while programs will be limited this summer, we’re working hard toward the well-being of staff members and volunteers. We cannot, however, eliminate the risk of exposure to a virus. While camp is not open to general visitation, it’s important that all who are at Deerfoot this summer agree to the following assumption of risk.
- We have taken reasonable additional measures in an effort to reduce exposure to COVID-19 for all at Deerfoot Lodge.
- COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. An inherent risk* of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people are present.
- While any person is at risk of potential exposure, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
- By coming to Deerfoot Lodge Adirondacks or Deerfoot Lodge Blue Ridge you are voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and any other communicable disease.
*An inherent risk is a risk that cannot be eliminated.

This past weekend our Board of Directors made the painful decision to cancel the 2020 regular camp season because of the unprecedented health challenges presented by COVID-19. This decision was made through tears because we know many of you will be devastated.
We have no words to lessen the pain this brings. We know, however, that God can redeem even tough things to grow his people. So, we call on Deerfooters to look to Him and continue to grow as godly men.
We’re praying for the camp community and covet your prayers for us. Deerfoot will need your prayers and support going forward.
We’re working on ideas to help us connect this summer. Stay tuned to camp email updates and social media where we will announce plans as they develop.
