Alabama CFO is June 2-7, 2024


Camp Farthest Out is a Christian Organization which holds nondenominational, spirit-filled camps and retreats in various locations throughout the world.  Each CFO is planned through prayer by volunteers from many different churches, traditions, and backgrounds, with an emphasis on a vital experience with God through Jesus Christ our Savior.  CFO is open to all who hunger and thirst for a deeper relationship with Jesus.  The activities at camp can be best described as experiences that pull us from the routine of the every day world and immerse us in His Love.  CFO is rooted in prayer and focuses on the grace and mercy of God's heart.  Our retreats will challenge you to be passionate about your faith and your commitment to live your life as a Christ-Follower. 


Alabama CFO is a non-denominational Christian gathering held every year the first full week of June at Camp Sumatanga. Camp Sumatanga is a Methodist Conference campground rated by national experts as one of the most beautiful camps in America. It's 1,700 wooded acres provide a place of beauty and inspiration enjoyed by all ages. Modern facilities near a fifty-five acre lake nestle at the foot of a cross crowned mountain. A lovely chapel on the top of the mountain is a cherished place to many CFO'ers. Hiking trails, tennis courts, playing fields, fishing, a swimming pool and a playground enhance the facilities. All ages are welcome at Alabama CFO. While the emphasis is the family, singles are welcome and encouraged to come. Meaningful experiences are planned for all age groups.

I love CFO. I love the feeling of family you get from everyone around you. The love and acceptance of the people there. It's a great place to get away from the world, but still feel like you're at home.

Alabama Camp Farthest Out (CFO) has been a yearly tradition in my family since I can remember. The friendly atmosphere, beautiful scenery and awesome God encounters have changed our lives forever. We are continually blessed by the lives of the people we have met there. CFO will forever carry a special place in my families hearts.

I would rather come to CFO in the Middle of Nowhere Alabama than be at the most beautiful beach or city in the world because the people here are more beautiful and wonderful than the most gorgeous places on Earth. I have travelled the world and been in a lot of priveledged places with a lot of priveledged people, and NOTHING compares to the treasured times at CFO. It really does feel like a little slice of heaven.

The Presence of God was so evident at camp this year all through the week. thanks to all of you who prayed in the Presence! Thanks to all who did their part to make up the whole. CFO runs the gamete, from Ice Cream Night to Talks to Prayer Groups to Healings (inner and outer) to Youth Night to..... Praise to Our Mighty God Who does all things well!

I have attended Alabama Camp Farthest Out for 35 years and absolutely love it! A true mountaintop experience in the Lord. These people love Jesus with whole hearts, have an amazing capacity for loving others and for having fun. Come Find Out! One of the best kept secrets in the Christian world.
