My brother, sister, and I all go or have gone (until they were too old) to camp deer run/ brookwoods. We all LOVE it! I look forward to camp ALL year because I have so much fun there. my camp memories are filled will sailing, water-skiing, friends, hilarious games each night! The facilities are PERFECT each cabin is beautiful, and has showers, sinks and bathrooms, windows with curtains and each night in your cabin feels like a sleepover with friends for life. The beach at camp is beautiful and sandy. The water is CRYSTAL CLEAR!!!!!!!!!! no weird brownish water, or gross seaweed. every day is FILLED with activites NON STOP it is so well organized and the food is delicious! every other night you have store, and get to eat candy, slushies, and soda! there are so many acivities and every night there is a realy fun activity i recommend it to EVERYONE

Truly A Wonderful Experience March 21, 2009

If any parent or guardian is reading these comments to see if they think their children should go, LET THEM GO! This will be my third summer in july 09 and i truly can't say enough about the place. All the faculties (ranging from the boat house to the cabins, dinning hall, and bathrooms) are all kept immaculate and cleaned daily. The food is very good quality for a camp(most camps that make food in such bulk don't use the healthiest of ingredients, or buy extremely low-quality meats and never fresh produce {to save money}. Also some-place's don't offer much of a variety at every meal) but at camp they buy high quality meats because their "healthier" and always allow food options to campers and staff at every meal. The cabins are cosy and well maintained. Each has two sinks, toilets, and showers. The camp offers over 5o activities that people can choose from( from water aerobics to dirt biking). Each session (two weeks) every cabin goes on a hike on some of the nearby mountains. Depending on the age group the hike range from 1 day+ night hike, to a 3 day + 2 night hike etc. (the older the cabin the longer the hikes) The religious aspect of the camp is excellent. They don't force religion down the kids throats, but offer great resources for the growing christian. I can't say enough about the staff, each staff member is hand picked and aren't just the 16-year-old teen looking for some extra money for the summer. The councilors are rarely younger than 19 years old and most of them have been going to camp for 5 or more years. They have always been people i look up to and are clearly picked for there great personalities and strong morals. In each cabin their is always two councils, and about 10-12 girls. Over the years camp has taught me respect for my parents, friends and my life. This appreciation does not just occur within the first week of coming back home it stays with me for the rest of the year! This camp has changed me in the biggest of ways. After i've done something good i think that god and others would be proud of me for i think of camp. I think of the wondrous property, my cabin friends, and most importantly my councilors from that previous summer who had guided and helped me to become a better person. With each good decision i make the first thing that pops into my head : CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR ! This camp is over 50 years old and ACA Certified (american camp association). I just love camp and i think many other kids will too. ;)

If any parent or guardian is reading these comments to see if they think their children should go, LET THEM GO! This will be my third summer in july 09 and i truly can't say enough about the place. Every summer when i get back from camp i have better respect for my parents, friends and my life. The facilities are clean and maintained, food is very good(sometimes places that make food in such of a bulk tend to go for less expensive{lower quality} meats, less fresh food, and limited meal options) food at every meal is quite the opposite! The cabins are fairly sized and cosy. The councilors are always one- of-a-kind and they are not a bunch of 16 year old high school kids just needing some extra cash, the camp hires staff no younger than 18 years old(though that young is rare) and each is hand picked for their personal qualities. They have always been their to guide and look up to and are always outstanding people. All activities around camp are all closely monitored by staff and always include all the necessary safety precautions. This appreciation does not just occur within the first week of coming back home it stays with me for the rest of the year! This camp has changed me in the biggest of ways. Everyday i try to include the unincluded in my school or try to be friends with a new person,or even when i have a disagreement with a friend i try to just let it go. After i've done something good i think that god and others would be proud of me for i think of camp. I think of the wondrous property, my cabin friends, and most importantly my councilors from that previous summer who had guided and helped me to become a better person. With each good decision i make the first thing that pops into my head is CAN"T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR
