We are so pleased that you have chosen to send your child to Camp St Mary of Egypt (CSME)! One week at Camp St. Mary of Egypt can transform a young person’s life both in the short term and in the long term.
Here, you’ll find valuable information that will help you and your camper prepare for their camp experience. Please take a few moments to review the info below and don’t hesitate to contact us with any additional questions that you may have!
Aldersgate can accommodate medically-necessary gluten-free and dairy-free options if requested at least three weeks prior to camp. Please complete the Dietary Request Form linked above. Campers with dietary issues will be instructed on the protocol for obtaining their special meals during their initial cabin orientation.
The CSME camp dress code is "modest camp casual", Both girls and boys should wear longer shorts and pack clothing that is church-appropriate for Liturgy during camp. Sturdy, closed toed, athletic shoes are a necessity as is modest swimwear. See Parent Handbook for detailed information.
CSME’s Healthcare Center is onsite and is staffed by a Medical Director, either MD or RN or assistant 24 hours a day. The Medical Director is responsible for the health and safety of all campers, daily medications, first aid, assessing emergency medical situations, notifying parents of emergency treatment outcomes, and all health screenings.
We have prepared a detailed camper packing list that includes all items your camper will need for their camp experience.
