Military Camps

For the health and safety of our community, CRISTA Camps has made the difficult decision to close our Island Lake and Miracle Ranch properties until May 2021. Please check back in Spring 2021 for an update on Operation Extreme camps.

Operation Xtreme

Started in 2011 as a summer camp for children of military families, Operation Xtreme gives 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.
