A LETTER FROM JOHN DAVID (JD) AND FR. BOB
   

Dear Friends and Family  of  Camp Sancta Maria:
 
Last month we shared with you some of our goals for 2019.  One goal we're especially excited about is to become  Michigan's WORST kept secret!

This month we're pleased to share with you a new program we're unveiling to help us meet that goal--our CSM Ambassador Program

Some of you have served as Camp ambassadors for years, and we are truly grateful to you! Thank you for talking about Camp with family and friends, distributing flyers at your church and school, and inviting  neighbors to send their kids to CSM. Recommendations from one parent to another are so very valuable! 

We look now to deepen the bench and add more ambassadors to our family. Will YOU help us by becoming a CSM Ambassador so that EVEN MORE kids can benefit from the tremendous formation that Camp instills? 

Are you someone who likes to shout from the rooftops about how wonderful Camp Sancta Maria is for our youth? Or perhaps you're more inclined to have a quiet conversation with a neighbor or parent at your child's school. Are you retired and looking a Catholic ministry to help on a regular basis? Or maybe you're a busy parent unable to make a scheduled commitment, but willing to spread the word about Camp as the opportunity arises. All are needed! All are welcome!

Will you consider joining our Camp family as a CSM Ambassador?  We will provide you with all the materials you need. And you can invest as much or as little time as your schedule allows. Some of the ways you can help are surprisingly easy and quickMany hands, as they say, make light work. 

For more information on our CSM Ambassador Program, visit our website by clicking here or contact Jan Klemm at 248-822-8199 or jan@campsanctamaria.org.

We hope that, like us, you have been inspired by the progress made at Camp in the past few years. Our enrollment continues to climb each year, and thanks to YOU--our treasured volunteers, donors, and prayer partners--we've made tremendous improvements to our grounds and facilities. Thank you for glorifying God through your commitment to CSM. We are more grateful than you could know.

We know that our Blessed Mother--to whom CSM is entrusted--is watching over us and blessing our efforts, as well.
 
Tickets are still available for our  2019 Benefit Dinner on Thursday, April 4, at The San Marino Club in Troy.  If you haven't joined us in the past, please consider doing so. Not only will you be helping Camp, but we promise you a fun evening surrounded by great people, lots of laughs, and a delicious meal. If you have attended in the past, please help us by inviting someone new to join you this year. More information is available below and on our website by clicking here .

With your help, we look forward to reaching our goal and making Camp Sancta Maria Michigan's WORST kept secret! 

Thank you again for helping to spread the word about CSM, for volunteering, and for your financial and prayerful support. May God bless you and your loved ones.

Warm regards,

John David Kuhar

THANK YOU, FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF CSM!
CSM campers say, "THANK YOU!"

We Couldn't Do This Without You!

We can't thank you enough for your continued support of Camp Sancta Maria. Because of your kindness and generosity, your prayers, and your time and talent, many campers come through our gates who might otherwise not have an opportunity to experience all the blessings CSM offers.

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many kids by helping to provide an opportunity of faith and fun!

Please keep us in your prayers, and know that you are also in our prayers. We look forward with eager anticipation to the blessings that CSM--entrusted to the Immaculate Heart of Mary--will experience in 2019. May our Lord continue to bless you and your loved ones, as well.
 
Sincerely,

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!
