The Deerwoode experience defies an easy description. I began by collecting all the Deerwoode memorabilia that I could find–photographs, catalogs, original campfire songs, and so forth to create this website — a celebration of all that was Deerwoode, at least from my perspective. But that was just a start. Many of us have attended Camp reunions in Brevard from 2003 through 2019, and have stayed in touch via email. Some of our correspondence and old photographs are also included here to collectively share our Deerwoode experiences.
This will continue to be a work in progress as I try to incorporate many memories and testimonials and organize everything into a coherent format.
If you have attended Deerwoode and would like to share your experiences, feel free to contribute your Deerwoode thoughts, stories, and adventures. Some of you may even have memories of Camp before the Bill Mayes era, since Deerwoode was founded in 1923. Please include the years you were involved with Deerwoode, and in what capacity (camper, JC, counselor, etc.).
For now, please send me your input via email. (There was too much spam being sent through the Comment Section). I may contact you for any clarification and may need to edit or withhold some comments.
