Ever sinse I was nine years old, I've been going to a camp up in the Adirondacks called Deerfoot Lodge. For two weeks out of my summer, I would live in log cabins without electricity and go backpacking and camping in the high peaks region of New York, all while learning how to build a fire, shoot an arrow, raise a sail, and make a bowl. Deerfoot Lodge has been intrumental in creating the foundation of who I am today.
One of the things that makes Deerfoot Lodge so extraordinary is its mission. For an active eleven weeks during the summer, Deerfoot focuses on creating Godly men in a Christ-centered community through wilderness camping. Because God has been working through Deerfoot for the past 86 years, SO many people have come to learn of its existance and therefore, for the past couple of years, we've been at full capacity.
It just doesn't seem right; trying to decide which young boy will be able to spend a summer at Deerfoot and which will not. That's why this past year, the Board of Directors at Deerfoot Lodge decided to purchase property down in North Carolina and have made plans to create a second Deerfoot.
The 3000-12 BLUE Challenge is a fundraiser to support the building of Deerfoot’s new camp in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina. Participants ask friends and family to sponsor them as they do 3000 pushups and memorize 12 Bible verses. We raise money, get ripped, and learn the words of Jesus. All at once. We call that BOSS!
