Camp Penuel: Costa Rica

Camp Penuel Costa Rica’s Vision is to give children ages 7-11 the opportunity to just be kids in a lovely camp setting. We want them to come to know their heavenly Father through Christ Jesus. Also, to experience the abundant life the Lord offers through the power and love of the Holy Spirit.The Camp now offers this vision to adolescents and adults with special needs through camps tailor-made for them. All of our camps are evangelistic camps and are free of charge. This means no costs to the campers or their families. “We sow the seed of the gospel in hearts, and we pray that it takes root and grows (Isaiah 55:10-11).”

The children enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, such as swimming, squeezing sugar cane, football (soccer) and indoor games. There are also many craft projects such as making badges/award ribbons, coloring T-shirts, making cookies. Evenings include worship time, dramas, and bonfires. Excellent meals are provided. This Camp helps the children know Jesus as their personal Savior in a recreational atmosphere.
