Operation Xtreme

2018 Operation Xtreme Fall Weekend  Camp – REGISTRATION IS OPEN
2019 Operation Xtreme Summer Camp REGISTRATION OPENS Friday, November 10th, 2018!

Started in 2011 as a summer camp for children of military families, Operation Xtreme  has grown to include multiple weeks and weekends that give military kids of all grade levels the opportunity to experience fun-filled camps.

CRISTA Camps invites children of active duty, reserve and retired military members from all branches to a week or weekend of camp at Island Lake or Miracle Ranch to experience paintball, dirt bikes, horses, new friends and more! All branches of the military are recognized and honored at each camp, and we strive to create a community where campers feel understood, supported and–most importantly–ready for fun.

CRISTA Camps Mission

To provide memorable experiences where people encounter Christ and servant leaders are developed, so lives and communities are transformed.
