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 waitlists. The DL Blue Campaign began in 2016 with the vision to build a second Deerfoot Lodge in NC (with no long-term debt), and reach twice the number of boys and young men for Jesus. We’re at 90% of the overall goal of $15 million; Praise the Lord! Will you join us in the Completion Phase of the Campaign?
The Last 10%!
The dream to launch Deerfoot Lodge Blue Ridge felt far-fetched in 2015 when we imagined raising $15M dollars and building a new camp from scratch. Hundreds of donors, prayer partners, and volunteers pitched in and God made it happen. The first campers arrived on June 29, 2019! Now, we can see the finish line as we seek to raise the final $1.5M and build the 6700 sq. ft. Dining Lodge.
Total Campaign Goal: $15 Million
Total Gifts & Pledges raised: $13.5 Million
Remaining Need: $1.5 Million
We’re praying for an additional $1.5M in gifts or pledges by April 30, 2021. This would allow us to begin construction on the Steve Mayer Dining Lodge immediately after the camp season in order to have it ready for the 2022 season and avoid paying $67,000 to rent temporary kitchen facilities again.
