Anyone who has gone to camp knows that friendships and memories made here last a lifetime. Here at Camp Marist we want to extend a warm welcome to our many alumni. Though we don’t have an accurate number of alumni, we can estimate that there probably have been over 20,000 past campers and staff that were once at Camp Marist since 1949.
Whether you were on the “red team” or “white team” in our annual Color War, you were always bound together by the Marist Family spirit, the great memories and traditions which made Camp Marist one of the finest resident camps in the country.
Here is a letter from John T. McCarthy, M.D., a camper starting in 1953. It is a wonderful story of camp experiences in the early years.
