Extreme Faith Camp
What is Extreme Faith Camp? Extreme Faith Camp (EFC) is a multi-parish week-long camp for youth currently in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade to be held at Camp Victory in Zumbro Falls June 18th-22nd. Adults and 9th-12th grade students are invited to join us on the leadership team (with pre-camp leadership retreat June 16th-17th) and help make this week possible. Surrounded by the beauty of nature and saturated in the beauty of our rich Catholic Tradition, EFC is without a doubt a life-changing experience. Again this year, the Church of St. Henry is coming together with other parishes, including St. Timothy, Nativity of Mary, and St. Ignatius, to put on this amazing week of EFC. With both old and new friends teens are sure to enjoy all the crazy-fun activities, including large-group field games, 9-square-in-the-air, gaga ball, a dance with a live DJ, a lazy river, and “Wacky Olympics”. At EFC, teens will also encounter Christ through bible-studies, inspiring talks, small group sharing and discussion, the Sacrament of Confession, daily Mass, and Eucharistic Adoration. We invite you to come with us to EFC and encounter Christ!

Pizza Ranch Fundraiser: March 12, 2018
On Monday, March 12th, we will serve at Pizza Ranch from 5-8pm (with two shifts: 4:30-6:30pm and 6:15-8:15pm). This event is an opportunity 1) to raise funds to help offset your camp/conference expenses, 2) to get to know the other EFC participants before camp, and 3) to share the experience and joy of camp with the larger community! All cash donations and a percentage of all the sales generated from the night will be divided proportionally and then applied your outstanding balance. If you personally don't need the funds, you may choose to give your portion of the funds a student in need.
We need 6-8 volunteers per shift. The volunteer work will consist of busing tables, greeting people at the door, and some light clean-up. Parents, please consider volunteering as we will need two Essential-3-certified adult volunteers present at all times (E3 = Virtus trainning, background check, and code of conduct).
• Be ON TIME for your shift. Each shift will begin with a training and if you miss the training, you miss the opportunity to volunteer and raise funds for yourself.
• Wear clean blue jeans (no rips, holes, or stains) and your EFC 2017 camp shirt OR a plain bright lime green or navy shirt (the colors of the EFC 2017 shirts)
• Wear hair pulled back.
• Do not use cell phone while volunteering.
• Be a positive representative of the Church of St. Henry's and Extreme Faith Camp (Be prepared to share about your Church and Camp if asked!)
In addition to volunteering, we ask each student volunteer to help us promote the event. The more traffic we drive through the door, the more successful our fundraiser will be. We could make 5%, 10%, or 15% percent, depending on the amount of sales we generate. The goal is that each youth volunteer would get 12 people (family, friends, neighbors, etc.) to come!
PERMISSION FORMS: In addition to St. Henry's online permission form (included in our sign-up form below), Pizza Ranch requires a signed waiver for each volunteer (youth and adult chaperone. Please note: If the volunteer is under 18, a parent must ALSO sign the waiver). You may either 1) print one off from our (www.sthenrycatholic.info/efc) and send it back to St. Henry's before the fundraiser
OR 2) sign one when you come/bring your child on the 12th. No one is allowed to volunteer without this signed waiver. Thank you!
