Extreme Faith Camp

Extreme Faith Camp 2017

This program is typically held the last week in June.

Extreme Faith Camp is a Catholic summer camp for middle school aged-youth. (current 6th-8th graders) started by a group of youth ministers in the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis 15 years ago.

Each year, the camp grew to its current size, with 4 weeks of EFC for over 30 participating parishes! As youth ministers, we already are hard at work to prepare for camp-there is so much to be done!

At EFC, there is Mass every day, with at least one priest always on site, Adoration, praise and worship, Confession, small group time, and themed large group talks. Our theme this summer is Christ, the Light of the World.

Located at Big Sandy Camp in McGregor, MN, there is so much to do: swimming, water slide, archery, field games, Crazy Olympics, petting zoo, crafts, mountain bikes, hiking, sports, laser tag, and so much more! Youth are constantly moving and learning, making deep friendships that are founded on faith and active participation. The facilities are ideal for a safe environment for youth and adults with an on-site nurse, adult chaperones, youth ministers, and teen leaders.

High School Students:

The schedule is a little different for High School. Students go two days earlier and the stay the entire time. If they are in 9 grade they are free to be on the prayer team that works behinds the scenes and gets a week long retreat almost. Anyone that is 10 grade or older can be on the Extreme Team that helps lead the week as team leaders for the middle school students. We need at least one Extreme Teamer for every 6 middle schoolers.
