Have Fun While Learning About God!

The Children of Mary Religion Camp is a one-week sleep-away camp for kids.  The dates for our 2017 session are July 16-22. We live, pray, play, and study together so as to deepen our Catholic faith and live it more fully.  Mornings are devoted to learning more about God.  Afternoons are spent on sports, swimming, and crafts.  Campers live in cabins along with volunteer counselors.  There are central dining, crafts, and shower areas.  Swimming is in Lake York under the supervision of a certified lifeguard.


How to Apply

All children age 6-12 and who will enter grades 2-7 in the fall of 2017 are welcome!  Parents should submit three items for each child:

  • Recent photo (3x5 or similar size)
  • $50.00 deposit

All applications are subject to approval.

All camper applications are due by June 17, 2017.

Activities

Each day is filled with activity!  Religion classes are held each morning, with campers divided by grade level.  In the afternoons, campers rotate among swimming, arts & crafts, and sports.  The Evening Program has various activities, including Bunco, Camper skits, and a Camp Celebration.  Click here to see our daily schedule.

Cabins

Campers live and sleep in cabins, along with two counselors.  Cabin assignments are based on age and grade level.  Each cabin usually contains 3-4 Campers.  There are separate cabin areas for girls and boys.

The campsite was built in the 1930's, and few updates have been made since that time.  Cabins are made of wood and have screen windows.  Beds are made of metal and have plastic-covered single mattresses.  Each cabin has one light and one electrical outlet.

Meals & Snacks
We eat all meals together in the Dining Hall.  Volunteer cooks prepare the food.  Meals are eaten "family style" at tables that seat 8-10 people.  Each camper takes a turn as the waiter or waitress.  The meals are delicious!

Camp provides snacks in the afternoon and treats after meals.

Bathrooms

The Bath House is located in a central area at the campsite.  The Bath House has showers, toilets, and sinks.  Campers take showers at assigned times each day before dinner.  In addition, each cabin area has a bathroom with running water, toilets, and sinks.
