Our Camp

Camp Penuel in Ironton, Missouri on Lake Killarney was established to bring joy, hope and the fulfillment of knowing the love of Jesus to under privileged and at risk children.

When we let the word of God take hold of a child, God will do the rest.

camp penuel kidsFar too many of American’s children have been robbed of their childhood because of the effects of drugs, alcohol, abuse, and neglect. Camp Penuel was established to bring joy, hope, and the fulfillment of knowing the love of Jesus into these lives. So far we have ministered to over 70,000 little ones. Now God has expanded our outreach to include three campuses. They are located in Ironton, Missouri; Eldred, Pennsylvania; and Esparaza, Costa Rica.

Penuel means “face of God”. It is taken from Genesis 32, where Jacob wrestled with the angel and met God face to face. We want children to meet God face to face at Camp Penuel.

When we let the word of God take hold of a child, God will do the rest. Our role is to give opportunity to every child, opportunity to fail, opportunity to try again, opportunity to express their artistic talents - singing, drama, drawing, writing, picking up things off the ground and making a bookmark, etc., opportunity to accept the love of Christ in their life. Given that OPPORTUNITY, I believe that ALL children who receive Christ in their life will be successful, and will fulfill the God-given purpose for which they were created!
