Camp Sancta Maria


CAMP SANCTA MARIA
A place for Sacraments, Sports and Seminarians.

Here is some information and pictures of when I was a Camp Counselor and a Life Guard at Camp Sancta Maria.  Enjoy

 Beginning in 1933, Camp Sancta Maria has welcomed boys between the ages of 8-16 years old to spend two-weeks in Gaylord, Michigan. 

Camp Sancta Maria Grotto
Prayer is at the heart of the Camp as everyday starts with Mass and before lunch everyone prays the Angelus. Also some campers even gather to pray the Rosary  and before bed everyone prays Night Prayer in the Chapel.
Camp Sancta Maria
Here are some cabins, all of the cabins are named after a Saint, like St. Patricks. St. Dominic, St. Joseph's and My cabin was the great St. Bosco's Cabin.
This is a picture of the battle that takes place with campers and counselors, which is a whole lot of fun and a great work out. The counselors are like the Generals and the campers are foot soldiers with noodle weapons. (Safe Fun)
    This picture is funny, the campers decided to pretend they were hit by my car and I am in shock! :-) We also did a play of Noah's Ark in front of the cabin, where the campers had lines to remember and many many stuffed animals.
Can't forget about the Lake, Swimming is key for having fun at camp and this picture shows just that. On the beach we play basketball, noodle battle's, sand castles (2x winner:-) and just having fun swimming. 

So please think about coming to Camp Sancta Maria this summer, especially if your a Holy Seminarian from the Diocese of Gaylord.
