The Charles M. Bayer Campership Program


Each year, Camp Stella Maris sends hundreds of kids to camp through the Charles M. Bayer Campership Program. The Campership Program provides need-based scholarships for resident, day, and family camp programs.  Campership awards are extended to families who otherwise might not have the opportunity to send their children to camp.  Our goal is to ensure that all children are able to experience the loving and magical environment of Camp Stella Maris. Camp Stella Maris awards more than $150,000 to campers-in-need annually.


$325 provides a child with a week of Summer Day Camp
$830 provides a youth with a week of Summer Overnight Camp
$1,250 provides a teen with a Leadership Camp opportunity

Buy a Piece of the Big House

Bring a piece of the Big House into your house. We are selling the tables (now sold out) and benches from the old Big House. What a great conversation piece and a way to share CSM memories with friends and family.

All proceeds from the sale of the benches and tables will go towards renovating the Day Camp and Year-Round camp programming space in Peggy’s Basement.
