Camp Joy

About Camp Joy

Camp Joy has been changing lives for more than 80 years. Our summer camp programs provide opportunities for youth who might not otherwise have the chance to attend camp; including those in the foster care system, from underprivileged backgrounds, and those living with chronic medical conditions. Our goal is to create an environment where campers can enjoy a classic summer camp experience where they feel safe and empowered. Come join our team of counselors who are truly making a difference this summer!

In addition to our summer camp programs, Camp Joy also operates a robust outdoor school program. This program works with students in grades 4 through college, as well as faculty development. The education staff teach classes in outdoor education, facilitate group initiative team building activities, and operate high ropes courses. We operate under the mission of helping people grow and succeed through life-long experience based learning.

“I loved everything about this job. The community that I worked in was so supportive and uplifting as we worked together to create meaningful memories for the kids that we served. Having a new group of kids every week kept everything so fresh and exciting and we got to influence so many lives. The campers come from a ton of different backgrounds and always end up finding something they love at Camp Joy whether it be the pool, canoeing, doing crafts, the ropes courses, or a creek hike. Best summer job ever!”
