Summer camps, it seems, are becoming more popular as the years go by. With so many electronic distractions to keep kids indoors, it’s good to see parents allowing providing the chance to engage in activities that take them outside to breathe in a bit of fresh air. For older kids, there are overnight camps, but the younger set aren’t left out. Day camps are quite popular. One such day camp I visited this week at San Gabriel Park in Georgetown was Camp Peniel, geared for boys and girls ages 6-10. Camp Peniel, a Marble Falls-based group that’s been around since the 1940s, is based on Christian principles. Their motto: “Adventure With a Purpose!” The group also conducts a number of overnight camps. On my visit, the kids engaged in canoeing, bubble blowing contests, archery, story times and Twister, to name a few. Thankfully, the camp began early and concluded in the early-afternoon, avoiding the Texas summer heat. These photos are among the selection I shot for the Williamson County Sun.
