This is a fun event we hold in the fall for men to gather together for great food, great fellowship, and great chance to connect with God and each other.
Here is what you can expect from a retreat here. You will EAT GREAT FOOD, ENJOY SOME GREAT ACTIVITIES, YOU WILL BOND WITH OTHERS, YOU WILL GROW CLOSER TO JESUS When you attend one of our retreats.
Retreat can be all inclusive and planned by Camp Penuel East, or you can set up something that fits your groups needs.
Our LodgeA great place to gather.
Our lodge can seat over 100 people for meals and meetings. All inclusive retreats will include breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday depending on arrival and departure time.
Our ChapleA great place to fellowship.
We have a beautiful round chaple that can seat 80-100 adults. It is a quite place that is perfect to use as a classroom for teaching and a quiet place for praying together as a group.
Our DormA comfortable place to stay.
Our dorm is a large two sided building for housing up to 22 people at one time. 12 beds on the girls side and 10 beds on the boys side of the building. There are multiple showers on both sides.
Our CabinsA cozy place to stay.
We have 10 cabins each with 11 beds total capacity for all cabins is 110. Each cabin is equiped with a full bathroom which includes shower, sink, and toilet. We don't provide any bedding for any of our beds.
Our AmphitheaterA great place to sit around the fire.
This is located behind our chaple. There is plenty of seating for over 100 guests and this makes for a great outdoor gathering area with a large bonfire pit which is great for roasting marshmellows.
Outdoor ActivitiesA great place for you to play.
We have areas for swimming. We've got horseshoes and other similar field games. We have a basketball court and volleyball. We can set up a shooting range for various types of firearms. (safety is paramount)
It's simple really, we need revenue coming into the camp. We spend thousands of dollars every year providing free camp to every child that comes here. Retreats are a way for us to raise money to pay for that free program. It also will generate money every year for facility improvements and maintenance. It's a win win. You get to have a fun retreat and provide for our missions to help others.
We raise money all year long so that Camp Penuel East can provide free camp to every child that wants to come here. Most of our funds come from individuals that believe in what we are trying to do and want to sow into this ministry. Some of our funding comes from churches that believe in sowing into missions. We receive a little money from businesses and a couple of foundations. We do not receive any funding from any government agency. Our goal is that a large portion of our funds will come from hosting retreats at our facility.
Penuel means “face of God” it is taken from Genesis 32, where Jacob wrestled with the angel and wouldn’t let go until God touched him. When Jacob got up from that place he was changed forever, and that is what we want for every child that comes here to be changed by the power of God and to never be the same again.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT IF YOU HAVE A RETREAT HERE
This isn't just our job it's our life. Our house is on this campus and we are here to help you with whatever you may need while you are staying with us.
You will definitely not go hungry while your here at Camp Penuel East. We have an amazing cook on staff to prepare every meal for you so you don't have to.
Our facility is here for a purpose. It's great to eat, have fun, and fellowship, but sometimes we need to get away so we can reconnect with God.
