Deer Valley Lakeview Lodge Campaign

AT THE HEART OF IT ALL

Creating Memories Every Day

Every summer the mountain calls us and each year we respond. For more than 60 years Deer Valley has provided families, groups and schools an opportunity to come together, unplug and replenish the soul while enjoying the natural beauty of the Laurel Mountains. Through the years, our camp has continued to grow and improve thanks to your continued generous investments. Now it is time to turn our attention to Lakeview Lodge.

It is Deer Valley’s commitment to serve the whole family that makes our community so special. Your help is needed to raise the $850,000 required to rebuild Lakeview Lodge and ensure that we continue to be a community that welcomes all ages and abilities. Please join us and make your gift today to The Heart of it All Campaign.
