Explore Mackinac Island

Camp Sancta Maria is located in Otsego County, Michigan. Seven miles northwest of downtown Gaylord on State Highway M-32. CSM is centrally located in the heart of Northern Lower Michigan, approximately seventy-five miles from the Straits of Mackinac, Traverse City, and Alpena.


Mother of CSM Campers

“My two boys had an amazing time last year.  Confidence, fortitude, new adventures, time with the Lord, and memories that last a lifetime. They got all of it at CSM.”


Mother of CSM Camper

“We love this place. The combination of adventure and faith development is unmatched. Such a special place!”


Father of CSM Campers

“I love this place! Our kids love to go and plan to go next summer. I pray that this becomes a tradition that they carry on to their children.” It’s a great atmosphere to enjoy God’s nature, to practice and live the faith, and to be in His presence.


A huge thank you to all who participated in our Giving Tuesday fundraiser! We are very grateful to each and every one of you!

We even had a camper who donated the $55.00 he raised from collecting returnable bottles and cans in his community. Thank you, Owen!
And so the big question on everyone’s mind is….
Drumroll, please….
Donations for the Corral totaled $1,915 and donations for the Beach totaled $1,467. Thank you for your generosity. We are sincerely grateful to you.
But of course the real winners are our campers. Our children and grandchildren who attend CSM will benefit from the use of all the equipment we’ll be able to purchase for the corral and the beach because of your prayerful and financial support.
We can’t do this without you! We keep repeating it because it’s true. It is only with your support that we can continue to offer our campers the wonderful programs available at Camp Sancta Maria.
Together we are doing great things at CSM for our children and grandchildren !
Know that your prayers and financial support make all the difference!
Thank you again. Stay safe and God bless you.

Let the Giving Tuesday Games Begin!
