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.
