2020 Sustaining Gifts Needed!

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are unable to host our 2020 spring retreat rental season or our summer camp season. We may not be able to host fall retreats either. We are thankful for the opportunity to serve families through summer and fall family camping, these programs are covering their costs but they are not covering all of the camp's ongoing expenses.

We are heartbroken but must remain closed for the safety of our campers.  As a result, we are seeking support from our camp families, alumni, past staff, and others who know and love Camp St. Charles to help us to make it through to our 2021 season.

As of August 6, we are at 30% of our fundraising goal. Thank you for supporting us in this challengeing season.

2019 Pool Renovation-Phase 1 is complete

The camp pool was installed in 1964, much to the delight of campers and counselors who has been dodging jellyfish in the river for swim lessons. The pool is a favorite place to cool off on a hot day and many children have learned to swim during their time at Camp St. Charles. Swim lessons remain part of our summer program and the pool is open at least twice daily for free time swimming.

 

Our campers love the pool but they don't all love wearing swim shoes and crocs in the pool.  We have required pool shoes to protect camper toes from the rough patches in the pool surface. We completed phase 1 of the pool renovation and bare feet were invited back into the CSC pool. Thank you for your support!
