We believe God changes lives and charts new directions at camp!

That's why Joy of Living has been striving to provide a Christ-focused camp experience for resource-challenged children and youth since 1993. Each year our campers ride horses, swim, tube and canoe in the Mohican River, search for critters in our "crick," explore our 740+ acres of fields, trails and woodlands, get stretched spiritually and physically, and so much more!



We believe summer camp to be an experience that shouldn't be missed just because its out-of-reach financially. Each year we work with companies, small businesses, and countless individuals who generously donate the resources necessary to make camp happen. Our goal is to bring as many children to camp as resources allow!


Well, ask any child and they're sure to tell you they go to camp to have fun!  And at Joy of Living Camp we work hard at fun!

Our daily program features all-camp challenges and games, cabin adventures, activity choices like horse riding lessons and trail rides, woodworking, crafts, archery, and more! From morning rise-and-shine to to lights-out at night, our Campers are experiencing all our outdoor playground has to offer!

But there's so much more! Each day begins with cabin devotions and each day ends with evening Chapel at our outdoor amphitheater and cabin campfires. Learning to live the principles of God's Word in daily life (Biblical integration) is a high value to us. It is the capstone of our spiritual, physical, and emotional investment in every single child.
