Camp Stella Maris

Story

We need your help!

In May we made the difficult and heartbreaking decision not to run Camp for the summer 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our summer camp programs account for 89% of our annual revenue and the loss of those funds will have a lasting impact on Camp. While we pivoted to Family Camping and have been able to cut expenses to the bare minimum, the loss is still projected to be over $500,000 for the fiscal year 2020.

143 for CSM will help ensure the magic of CSM for future generations of all campers. 

Please show your love and support for CSM by making a donation today. 

Thank You 


Recognizing Our Collective Impact 

Summer 2020 will always be a part of Camp Stella Maris' story. It will be remembered as the first summer in 94 years that we did not run a traditional summer camp program. More importantly, though, it will be remembered for the tireless efforts of staff, alumni, and friends of CSM that helped us to get through a challenging season. By donating $143 or more, you will become part of a special group of donors, community members, and friends who will be forever remembered for their commitment to helping CSM weather the impacts of this crisis. 

This support will be recognized in a number of different ways, including iconic CSM 143 decals, patches, and shirts as well as  a mural on the grounds of Camp. This mural will be made of tiles that represent your donation, and help us to tell the story of the love that the CSM community shares with one another. Please join us in sharing the love with future generations of CSM campers. 


The Origin of 143 at CSM

The love that we collectively share for Camp is a force to be reckoned with– a love that can be broken down into three simple numbers...143. 143 is based on the number of letters in each word of the phrase: I (1), love (4), you (3).

So grateful for the many happy memories our 3 children have had at Camp Stella Maris both as campers and counselors and for the many happy memories I had as a camper decades ago. CSM has meant so much to our family.
