Camp Peniel’s Work Crew is a volunteer discipleship summer camp program. For two week “blocks,” we will lead high school students through interactive bible studies, practicing spiritual disciplines, and times of sharing our experiences walking with the Lord in order to have a better understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
It’s called WORK Crew for a reason. Participants will help with the daily chores that come with having 200 people around. Each block will work on other big picture projects that keep camp moving forward. And, there are also opportunities for participants to serve alongside our counseling staff in creating the best week possible for our campers. Our hope is that through these things we get to practice living out what we are learning about being a disciple of Jesus as we imitate Him in serving those around us.
Work Crew is hard work, but it is also a ton of fun. Expect to play, create, laugh….even lounge. The directors are always coming up with crazy games to keep things interesting. Work Crew will go on outings throughout the Texas Hill Country like an evening at Lake Marble Falls, cliff jumping, etc. A hammock garden is a favorite hangout spot and there is plenty of time to enjoy all that camp has to offer.
For many, the friends they make on Work Crew end up being lifelong friends. Imagine a group of high school students in which there is the captain of a football team, a girl with purple hair, another girl who is destined for the stage, a guy in cowboy boots, a shy girl that is most comfortable in her books, a pageant winner, and a guy with glasses & two knee braces. This is typical of Work Crew. It is a group of people that are so completely different, but because Jesus unites them, they love each other really well. And it is beautiful.
