Camp Deerhorn 2020 Fund

48633000_1591566077584283_r.jpegWe are past and present families of Deerhorn Campers.

To preserve the gifts that Deerhorn has brought to thousands of Boys, over 90 years of camping in the woods of Rhinelander Wisconsin, we are asking for your support. We want to see generations of boys continue to make Deerhorn their summer destination. Without these funds, this may not happen, so our ask is genuine and it touches each and every one of us. 

In response to COVID-19 and the necessary closing down of Summer 2020 Camp Deerhorn sessions, the Broadbridge families are practicing what they have always preached to our sons; "to try to see the other fellow's side of the question...” To demonstrate this, Deerhorn has offered families that could not donate their 2020 deposit the option to roll-over, or request an eventual refund of these funds. This promise is outside the terms we all agree to when we complete our annual application for camp. Deerhorn relies on these deposits for fixed costs that the camp incurs year after year. These costs have not vanished, even though Summer 2020 will not happen. Refunds create a shortfall today and roll-overs will merely push Deerhorn’s shortfall until 2021. We don't feel that Deerhorn, nor the Broadbridge families should bear this burden alone.

We are all in this together! 

So, we would like to ask the families that can; Help us make up this difference.  

Whether your son is a current, past, or even, in-waiting camper, please consider supporting this fundraiser. This Go Fund Me campaign is for all Deerhorn families, including the family that has done so much to develop our sons into Boys and Men of character, resilience, and leadership. Deerhorn will receive these funds directly through an account set up on their behalf via GoFundMe and will use these funds to support all requests for refunds. These are unprecedented times, and we know that many of our fellow Deerhorn families may also be facing significant challenges. 

If you are unable to help through a donation of your own, we appreciate you taking the time to read this page. We ask you to consider passing the link on to others who might be willing to help. Anyone who knows your son and values the person he is becoming may be willing to stand with your son and donate even a small amount to help us meet this challenge.  

Gratefully, 
Current and Past Families of Deerhorn Campers
