Welcome to confirmation camp at EFS Sandvikengården!

If you are registered and have any questions / thoughts about the camp, please do not hesitate to contact the farm by mail or phone.

The farm is run by ETUC Värmland - Northern Dalsland, which is an independent organization within the Swedish church, emphasizing mission lekmannaengagemang and everyday Christianity.

What is important anyway? Friends? Guys? Girls? Am I good enough? What is evil and what is good? Is God? Who is Jesus? We hope and believe that we can be a resource for you, through our yard, staff and leaders and you here to find answers to some of your life issues.
You get the opportunity to take a stand for what you read together and discussed about the Church, Christianity and life. If you are not already baptized, you will be offered to baptize you in the camp.
