St. Mary’s Camp Programs

By God’s Grace St. Mary’s Camps have been changing the lives of campers and staff since 1952!  The bonds sewn are lifelong and cherished.  It is a rare opportunity to live in true Orthodox community:  One that has a profoundly joyful impact on our campers and staff year after year!   We have discovered that those who play and pray together, more often stay together over the years.

Our Camps are hosted by St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church in Minneapolis, MN.

St. Mary’s Summer Camp occurs the week of July 4th. The 2023 Summer Camp dates are July 1-7 for kids entering 3rd – 12th school grade in the Fall of 2023.

Our Family Camp weekend is usually the second weekend of October. Family Camp:  Please go to the Family Camp page for more info.  2023 Family Camp dates are October 6-8.

Both Camps welcome Pan-Orthodox participation in attendance, staffing and in the planning of our programs.

Financial Assistance: If you are in need of scholarship assistance, please contact your parish priest FIRST, PRIOR to the end of the Early Bird Registration period. After checking with your home parish priest, if you still need assistance from St. Mary’s GOC, please contact camp@stmaryscamp.com. These requests must be before the end of Early Bird Registration.
