"Camp Sancta Maria offers the opportunity to grow in love of the Lord and love of nature. Camp allows young people to grow in personal responsibility away from their parents, to think for themselves and become part of a team of young Christian people. I cannot think of a better place for young people to grow into well-rounded individuals than Camp Sancta Maria."

A LETTER FROM
JOHN DAVID (JD)
Remembering warmer temperatures on a day trip to Mackinac Island!

Dear Friends and Family of  Camp Sancta Maria,
 
We want to take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy New Year! We look forward with eager anticipation to all that our Lord and his Mother have in store for CSM in 2020. 

As we write this message, the wind chill is in the teens, but our hearts are warmed by the love and support of you, our CSM family and friends. 

We extend a very special thank you to everyone who has contributed to our 2019 Annual Appeal! In combination with the anonymous donor who has pledged to match your gifts up to $32,000, we'll be able to complete many projects at Camp this season. However, we haven't met our $32,000 goal yet, so please prayerfully consider being part of the matching gift program. There's still time to make your donation--which will be doubled--and you will make an impact on the lives of our children and grandchildren this summer. Thank you for your commitment to the kids at Camp Sancta Maria! 

We're excited to share with you some CSM news and highlights, including some special ways you can help us move forward with our mission of forming young Christian lives.
CSM Is In the News Again!

We're thrilled to share with you an article from the Catholic Foundation of Michigan  entitled, " Camp Sancta Maria Helps Youth Encounter God in Laughter, Nature, and Silence."  The article includes the following quote from Mark Mastracci, CSM alumnus and Trustee:

"Camp Sancta Maria offers the opportunity to grow in love of the Lord and love of nature. Camp allows young people to grow in personal responsibility away from their parents, to think for themselves and become part of a team of young Christian people. I cannot think of a better place for young people to grow into well-rounded individuals than Camp Sancta Maria."

2020 REGISTRATION

IS OPEN!

Register Your Child or Grandchild for a Summer  Full of
Fun and Adventure,  Personal Growth, and Spiritual Development

CSM campers refer to Camp Sancta Maria as the best way to spend the summer! Give your kids or grandkids  the best two weeks of their life and register them for a session (or more!) at Camp Sancta Maria! They'll learn new skills, make new friends, work as a team, encourage and support one another, and grow in their relationship with the Lord. Faith and fun all in one place!

Why should your child or grandchild attend CSM?
PERSONAL GROWTH

Kids open their hearts 
while  they are both away from home and in the unique atmosphere of CSM 
and the Holy Spirit
is then allowed to
get through to them.
SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

Infused into all of 
our activities is an atmosphere of faith.
FUN

Whether it is s wimming, horseback riding, ropes course, sports, arts and crafts, adventure games, or a trip to Mackinac Island, their time at camp
is full of fun!

TECHNOLOGY-FREE

With the ever-increasing prominence of technology in our day, our mission now includes offering young people a respite in a technology-free zone.
ROOTED IN NATURE

Our campers feel refreshed and experience a sense of wonder as they live more fully in nature--a very different experience from their daily routine.
FRIENDS FOR LIFE

Campers live and play with some people they may have never met before.  It is a very common experience for campers to form friendships that will extend over
their whole lifetime.

Ready to register for your child's or grandchild's BEST SUMMER EVER?  Go directly to our registration page by clicking here:  REGISTRATION

CSM is held in a trust governed by an independent Board of Trustees. While the Archdiocese of Detroit had generously donated the services of one its priests for decades, they are not responsible for CSM financially. This means that we are responsible to secure our own funding to advance the mission that has been passed down to us since our founding in 1933. To continue this essential work, we need your help. Are you feeling called to donate? Thank you for your prayerful consideration!
