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.  

Family Camp 2014

 We are pleased to announce that Family Camp is returning to the Fall!  Mark your calendars for October 10-12, 2014.  We look forward to sunshine and colorful trees!  As you may have heard, we have a new location due to the increased activity of the Lutheran churches at Camp Wapo.  It was not our intent to leave; however, God has lead us to a beautiful new location about the same distance, but west:  Camp Courage in Annandale, MN.  It is about 1 hour and 10 minutes from St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church.  We have room to grow there and they have wonderful facilities for us to share:  indoor swimming pool, gym, miniature golf, lake, full sports fields, outdoor basketball courts and nice cabins that will accommodate families with private bathrooms.  

Our family camp task force is already busy planning what we know will be a blessed weekend!  Because Camp Courage is a handicap accessible camp, spread the word to those who may appreciate these accommodations that may have hesitated to come in the past.  I have included a link below so you can look around! 

We ask you to put this date on your calendar in ink and think about those people you wish would have come in the past.  Invite them today and have them guard this weekend as well.  It is always a beautiful time to share with friends and family…an extension of camp for the kids and a place to build and renew meaningful relationships with other Orthodox families desiring to strengthen their bonds to Christ.

Remember, family camp is for everyone…grandparents, Godparents, families without kids, singles, empty nesters!
