What to Bring

Below is a list of what to bring to camp.    DO NOT FORGET YOUR BIBLE!

You wouldn't go to baseball camp without your baseball glove right?  So don't come to Bible camp without a Bible!  Camp is tough on clothes.  Old clothes work best.  Girls may want to bring a nice dress for Friday night.  Please label all items you want to return home!  Clothes easily get mixed and lost.  Marking helps minimize your camper's losses


The following is a list of items your child will need to bring to camp:

  • Pajamas

  • 6 Pair underwear

 What to Leave Behind

Cell phones, ipods & mp3 players, Game Boys or other electronic devices!  THIS APPLIES TO ALL AGES.  Girls, please do not bring any valuable jewelry.  Also, NO NEED FOR CASH AT CAMP.  No tobacco or alcohol products, guns, knives, or anything expensive!  Please, also leave markers and snacks (remember the ants) at home. 

 Notes to Parents


Please mark all clothing items with your child's full first and last name and counsel them about being careful not to lose his/her clothing during their week at camp.  Usually problems of this nature arise when the child is getting ready to leave camp.  Camp Peniel does not take responsibility for recovering lost or misplaced items of clothing.  Your child's clothing items are his or her responsibility.  We will place a lost and found articles tub near the office.  Please check it before leaving on Saturday.
