Camp Stanislaus is located in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, along the beautiful Gulf Coast. Founded in 1928, Camp Stanislaus operates in conjunction with the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, a religious order of teaching brothers who have operated Saint Stanislaus since 1854. Both a day and resident camp, it is open to boys and girls ages eight to fifteen. The camp’s main goal is to provide campers a good time and an opportunity to create new friendships, learn independence, improve social skills, encourage one another, and work hard to achieve their goals.
