Joy of Living Camp provides a Christian summer camp experience to disadvantaged and at-risk children and youth. Largely, the children we serve lack the financial means for such a formative life experience.
The cost to JOY for one week of summer camp is $360 per child, covering food, insurances, programmings costs, and compensation for summer staff at a ratio of less than 3 campers for every camper.
Each family is asked to pay a $30 registration fee that is not eligible for scholarship. They are then asked to contribute whatever amount they are able to cover the balance of the cost. For many, even the registration fee is a financial hardship.
That's where you come in!
Our goal for 2017 is to raise funds sufficient to bring 170 children to camp - or $56,000.
