Columbia River Family Geology Camp

Imagine sitting with your family and friends under the starry sky, with the sound of the Columbia River as your backdrop. It is at times like this that deep questions are asked, and life directions are often set.

Located amidst the peaks and plateaus of the Okanogan country on the banks of the Columbia, Peniel Ranch is the perfect place to bring the whole family for a vacation you won’t soon forget!

And this is the location for the Columbia River Family Geology Camp, where you can expect to have a wonderful family vacation, built around studying and experiencing the geology of the area from a Biblical perspective.
