Looking for a fun and faith-filled place for your children or grandchildren to spend a week or two this summer?  Want to help them unplug from technology, develop face-to-face relationships, exercise, experience nature and give them experiences they will treasure the rest of their lives?  Camp Sancta Maria Flyer

Look no further! Camp Sancta Maria (CSM), located in Gaylord, Michigan, provides wholesome recreation and adventure in an atmosphere of Christian faith.  CSM is a Catholic camp with one- and two-week sessions for boys and one-week sessions for girls.  Since 1933, CSM has provided countless youth with lasting memories.  Do they like horseback riding or want to try it for the first time?  They can do it at camp!  Want to spend time at the beach and in the water?  Enjoy CSM’s own private beach on Lake 27!  Enjoy playing sports?  Have fun each day competing in different athletic contests!  These are just a few of the activities offered at Camp.  

Other activities include daily Mass, a high- and low-challenge ropes course, a fifty-foot climbing wall, crafts, archery, a trip to Mackinac Island with a stop for Mass under the largest crucifix in the world, campfires (and s’mores!) and so much more!!!  Fun, faith, and friendships included at no extra cost!  Camp begins in June and runs through mid-August.  We also offer Mother & Daughter weekends and Father & Son weekends.
