Goal: To get ready for a spring and summer of ministry. This is a work weekend that includes clearing trails, repairing roofs, painting, working around Miller Lodge, the craft shed, and around all of our cabins. Bring your energy, shovels, gloves, and rakes. We will provide the lodging and sustenance to keep you fueled. This weekend is a time we can all come together and share in our love for Camp Peniel by serving as a team to improve our facilities.

Family time can be hard to capture these days, and our kids grow up way too fast. A weekend at Camp Peniel is like taking a retreat from every day life so you can set aside time to enjoy your family without the daily distractions. Ride horses, paddle in a canoe, hold on tight as you soar on the gym swing or just relax during one of the many wonderful meals you will share together during the weekend. (Without any of the work!) This is a great setting to build fun memories that they will take with them forever.

This camp combines outdoor adventures and inspiring ministry for the purpose of seeing the hearts of fathers and sons turn towards each other and towards Jesus Christ. See God’s creation in the Word and in all the activities and your adventures. Make memories with sons, fathers and grandfathers.

Why Peniel?
Our Mission
Our Location

Camp Peniel, a place where God is known, and lives are changed. Be prepared for adventure on 382 acres of the beautiful hill country! Swim in our spring-fed lake, hike, ride horses, or challenge yourself on the zip-line. Peniel was founded in 1946 for the sole purpose of reaching today's youth for Jesus Christ. We operate as a non-denominational ministry.  We believe that every week of camp should be a life changing experience because of the extreme fun experienced and the rock solid Bible training received. Our mission is to challenge every camper to strengthen their personal relationship with Christ while experiencing an Adventure...... With A Purpose!

Bringing people to a face to face relationship with God 

 through Christ centered adventures.
