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 and will allow us 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 75% of the overall goal of $16.5M; Praise the Lord! Will you join us in the Completion Phase of the Campaign?

The dream to launch Deerfoot Lodge Blue Ridge became reality when the first campers arrived on June 29, 2019! This moment felt like a miracle. Hundreds of donors, prayer warriors, and volunteers pitched in to make it happen. God gets all the credit for His provision.

We launched Deerfoot Blue Ridge with 60% of its final capacity and several temporary structures. We invite you to join the Completion Phase to finish the final facilities needed for full camper capacity, including the 6,700 sq. ft. Steve Mayer Dining Lodge?
