Camp Deer Creek

Pittsburgh’s Oldest and Finest Children’s Day Camp




 

 

Be a Camper Today!

Our campers have that Deer Creek Spirit deep in their hearts and it is expressed creatively in a wide variety of camp activities:

  • Weekly Friday Special Days
  • Craft projects 
  • Cookouts
  • Weekly Deer Creek Breezes newsletter
  • Camper-counselor softball/volleyball games
  • Special end of the season all-camp play 

That spirit never goes away. Our campers have become counselors and now there are second and even third generations of campers whose parents had their first camping experience here!

The camper’s day begins between 8am & 9am when the bus arrives to pick them up and the day ends when the bus drops the children off between 3:45pm & 4:45pm.

Lunch is included daily. Camp Deer Creek serves a hot lunch prepared in our kitchen.
