Operation Xtreme, The CRISTA camp for military children, Operation Xtreme, was created in 2011 to give children of military families the opportunity to experience a fun-filled week of summer camp. Since then, we’ve welcomed over 1,000 children from military families, and our goal is to continually serve more families with special camps and events.
‘Military children have unique situations where parents are deployed, sometimes both mom and dad, and camps like this are important because they need let go of their stress to be kids. At Operation Xtreme, the kids can be free.’ – Carla Hagberg, Parent
‘A lot of families can’t afford to send their kids to camp, so not only does it minister to military families in this way, but it actually allows them to send their kids for an experience they probably wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. The fact that Operation Xtreme would put on a camp for military kids that is totally paid for is great!’ –Mark Beaudet, Chaplain
