GSYG meets for service projects, outings, formation and prayer, and good ol’ fun.

Summer Opportunities

Extreme Faith Camp [EFC] - McGregor, MN (Big Sandy Camp) -- CANCELLED

Extreme Faith Day Alternative

Due to the current pandemic the leadership team of EFC Week 1 has made the difficult decision to cancel our week of camp this year, there will be an alternative event (Extreme Faith Day) planned for August 15, 2020 with the parishes from our week of EFC. Please see this letter from the youth ministry leadership of EFC Week 1 and see below for details about Extreme Faith Day Registration.

Extreme Faith Camp is a one-week camp for current 6th through 8th grade students. It’s a real camp, for real teens, where they will encounter the One, Real, Living God. Surrounded by the beauty of northern Minnesota, on the campus of one of the elite camps in the Midwest, and saturated in the beauty of our rich Catholic tradition, EFC is a life-changing experience. We spend the week with teens from several other parishes throughout the Archdiocese and have a blast with a crazy variety of activities (including a water slide), and we encounter Christ through the power of the Sacraments, challenging talks, and small group sharing. This Catholic Camp is the real deal.

Extreme Faith Day (August 15, 2020) Registration Details
