Training Camp

June 15, 2024 is a one-day Training Camp and is available free of charge for anyone serving for a week this summer. Our goal is to better equip our staff for their summer ministry at Peniel. People who attend Training Camp should leave knowing more about Peniel, Christian camping, why we do things, how to help run the camp safely, how to counsel campers, and how to be more of a leader/mentor.

While attendance at this camp is optional, we encourage staff to attend as many of the sessions as possible. You may wish to review a sample schedule below to see how you would benefit. You can sign up for Training Camp by contacting Pastor Tony Garren at
