Extreme Faith Camp

What is Extreme Faith Camp? Extreme Faith Camp (EFC) is a crazy-fun and deeply Catholic, multi-parish, week-long camp for youth currently in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade! Adults and 9th-12th grade students are invited to join us on the leadership team (beginning with pre-camp leadership retreat) 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. AThis year, the Church of St. Henry is merging weeks with a new group of parishes, including St. Francis Xavier (Buffalo), St, John the Baptism (Savage), and Divine Mercy (Fairbault), plus St. Timothy (Maple Lake), and St. Ignatius (Annandale). We also have a NEW location: Big Sandy Camp in McGregor!  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!

We know that camp is expensive but we truly believe it is worth it! We want to make it possible for any and every student to attend camp. That is why we help organize fundraising options for families! These fundraisers are largely parent-driven so please be in contact if you are interested in helping get more on the calendar. We just concluded our first fundraiser (coffee and ornament sales) but there will be more!
