Two Completion Scenarios
We envision two possible scenarios for constructing the dining hall:
- Essential completion: $3.5 million – upper level is finished for food preparation and dining, but lower level is roughed-in for later completion.
- Full completion: $4 million – includes full build-out of the upper and lower levels.
Responding to the Challenge
The Lord has been at work...
We are very thankful that nearly half of the funds for the dining hall's essential completion scenario have been raised through donations and pledges from lead donors. With the dining hall being the focal point of Deerfoot-Blue Ridge, these individuals wanted to encourage other major donors to fund the building's construction and help lay the groundwork for the camp's opening in summer 2019.

Deerfoot-Blue Ridge is a God-sized endeavor, and we are completely reliant on Him to continue leading and blessing this second location of Deerfoot Lodge. If you or someone you know has a heart for reaching boys and young men for Jesus through wilderness camping, would you consider being a part of this effort to raise up the dining hall? Significant opportunities exist for funding the approximate half of the essential completion scenario not met by lead donors, as well as the full completion of the structure.
To explore this subject further, we encourage you to contact Chief Ron Mackey to discuss the possibility of participating in this way:
