Deer Camp Dinner History

The initial Airport Baseball “Deer Camp” Dinner began in 2002 by then-Coach Bob Jones and his wife, Kathy. Under Bob’s leadership and with community support, this fundraising event helped excel the Airport Baseball Program and fund numerous facility projects.

This continued until 2015, when Coach John VanWasshenova and his wife, Jill, began hosting the Deer Camp Dinner and coordinating upgrades to the baseball complex.

In 2022, the Airport Community Schools Foundation joined to co-host the event alongside the Baseball Program. As a result, the dinner has expanded to reach a larger variety of guests and proceeds are split among both organizations.

Also in 2022, the Deer Camp Dinner Scholarship was offered for the first time, thanks to  the generous support of Deer Camp donors, attendees and volunteers. Click here to read more about the Deer Camp Dinner Scholarship.
