GIVING TUESDAY RESULTS

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….
WHICH IS THE BEST PLACE TO BE WHILE AT CSM?
BEACH OR CORRAL?
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.

Thank You for Supporting CSM’s Mission
to Form Young Christian Lives!

ARCHERY TAG DONATIONS

Will you partner with us as we TAKE AIM at exciting new programs at CSM?
 
The cancellation of our day trip to Mackinac Island due to COVID-19 restrictions has given us an opportunity to explore some new action-packed programs for our campers right on the grounds of CSM.
 
Enter archery tag, which combines elements of dodgeball or other challenge-type games with the timeless skills of archery. Players take aim at each other with non-lethal soft foam-tipped arrows to score points or eliminate opposing team members. Our campers will enjoy the adventure and adrenaline rush, while moms and dads will appreciate the family-friendly nature of this unique sport.
 
Our new archery tag program is for the kiddos, but you can join in the fun vicariously by helping us purchase the best quality equipment. Together we can build the safest equipment and most thrilling archery tag program possible for our children and grandchildren.

ONE-TIME DONATIONS

Your donations support CSM families, facilities, and programs. Because of your gifts, kids are able to come to Camp and learn new skills, make new friends, work as a team, encourage and support one another, and grow in their relationship with the Lord. Faith and fun all in one place!  All of this is possible because of YOU! Thank you!

In addition, we strive to provide every child access to the CSM experience regardless of their ability to pay. CSM’s Scholarship Fund allows us to ensure, with your help, that no child is turned away.

CAMP CHAMPIONS MONTHLY GIVING PROGRAM

Through monthly donations, Camp Champions provide CSM with a consistent and reliable source of funding that allows us a financial foundation to plan ahead. When you become a Camp Champion, you join a special group of people making a big impact with small gifts to help change children’s lives. Thank you!

DONATIONS IN MEMORY OF CHARLES CONKLIN
(Father of Chick Conklin)

Please join us as we remember CSM alumnus Charles Conklin, who died on January 6, 2021. Charles was one of our original campers from back in the 1930’s, having also worked with Bishop Thomas Gumbleton at Camp. Our mission now is the same as it was back when Charles attended CSM: to let God meet the deepest needs of today’s youth by forming and transforming young lives in a beautiful northern Michigan setting. 
 
Charles enjoyed Camp so much that he sent his sons Bill and Chick to CSM. Chick is also actively involved in fundraising for scholarships to Camp, thanks to the generosity of the Dads Club, the Ushers Club, and the Knights of Columbus Council #4064 out of St. William Parish in Walled Lake. Chick was also the recipient of our Thomas Bean Award in 2001, in recognition of his fundraising efforts for Camp.
 

We speak often of the many lifelong friendships that are fostered among our campers at CSM, and the Conklin family are a great example of this. Because of the positive influence CSM has had on their family for so many years, they have requested that donations in their father’s memory be made to Camp Sancta Maria.
