Saint Andrew Catholic Church and School

Extreme Faith Camp

Extreme Faith Camp (EFC) is a crazy-fun, 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.
