Camp

Students are invited to stay with the staff at Deer Run Retreat, south of downtown Nashville. In addition to the time at the Capitol, staying at Deer Run gives students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment. Students play games, participate in small groups, play Ultimate Frisbee, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a message from the Class Director. Time at Deer Run is an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis at the Capitol with a spiritual focus on students’ relationships with God and one another.

Students and parent chaperones stay in modern cabins with separate facilities for guys and girls. Lodging, transportation, breakfasts and dinners are included in the residential camp fee of $160 for three nights or $200 for four nights. We encourage parents to come and enjoy the week as chaperones and assist with student transportation at a discounted rate of $120 for three nights or $155 for four nights. To reserve your slot at the camp, please register online.

Please use luggage tags, strips of masking or duct tape with your name written in permanent marker. You may also attach labels to ribbons or yarn and safety pin them to your items.
