Casa Mare

The warm, salty breezes, the call of gulls and the sight of sailboats gliding across Galveston Bay make Casa Mare a tropical paradise for ocean lovers and landlubbers alike. Located in Seabrook, Casa Mare is the perfect venue for seaside fun and also great for trips to Galveston or Kemah. It is home to the council’s sailing program, Mariners and also features a fishing pier, sand volleyball court near the water, pool, covered pavilion and archery range.

During the summer months, Casa Mare is home to one of GSSJC’s three resident camp programs and also hosts day camps.


All accommodations at Casa Mare are dormitories. The camp also has an air-conditioned galley with classrooms, as well as the Margaret Sheriff Sailing Center which also includes classroom space for sailors in addition to housing the camp’s sailboat fleet.
