About Us

The Children of Mary Religion Camp LLC is a private, non-profit organization based in South Carolina.  For almost 50 years, we have sponsored a one-week resident summer camp for the purpose of educating children in the Roman Catholic faith tradition.

The Camp is an independent charity that is affiliated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charleston (SC).  We operate our programs in accordance with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, as interpreted by the Bishop of the Diocese of Charleston.

Charity Status

The Children of Mary Camp is a not-for-profit, charitable organization formed under Section 501(c)3 of the US Internal Revenue Code. The Camp is also registered as a Public Charity with the South Carolina Secretary of State.  We are also recognized in The Official Catholic Directory as a miscellaneous institution located in the Diocese of Charleston.

Governing Structure

The Children of Mary Camp is governed by a twelve member Board of Directors and includes a member from the Diocese of Charleston who serves as Episcopal Moderator.  Board members are volunteers and receive no compensation for their service.


Since our first summer in 1970 as Divine Saviour Camp, we have helped thousands of children in South Carolina and North Carolina to deepen their faith in God.  Learn more about our history.

Camp Hall of Fame

All of our volunteers help make Camp successful.  Some, though, stand out as shining examples of the light of Christ.  Learn more about those people who have chosen to use their special talents to minister to our Campers.
