Our Program For over 50 years St. Mary's Camp has been a tradition in excellence  This program offers all campers entering the grades 3rd-12th an opportunity to grow closer in the Orthodox faith by participating in a fun, safe camp atmosphere.  This Pan-Orthodox program offers a unique opportunity to grow our spiritual community in prayer, worship and learning about the Orthodox church .
Special Guests St. Mary's Camp is honored with special guests each year ranging from clergy to monastics to Bishops! His Eminence, Bishop JOB was a frequent visitor of the camp and emphasized the importance for youth ministry and education. Mother Macrina (Holy Dormition Monastery in Rives Junction, MI), Mother Ivonne (Hogar Raphael Ayau Orphanage in Guatemala), and many other local clergy visit, participate, and support our camp program.
Great Staff Our all- orthodox staff is dedicated to not only providing a safe and spiritually educational environment for the campers, but also in having as much fun as possible throughout the week. Counselors, clergy, medical and support staff all come together with their vast levels of life experiences and put together a camper-focused program for your children.
Beautiful Setting Located at Camp Wapogasset in Amery, WI our program offers a variety of fun activities for our participants including horesback riding, ropes courses, sports, arts & crafts,  boating and more.  We have a combination of both cabin and dorms for sleeping and a chapel for worship.
