I have been going to Camp JOY for 3 years. My first year at Camp, all I cared about was having fun. But my second year the Lord truly did a work in my heart. I actually cared about other girls and boys - did they really know Jesus? Jesus Christ was my King, and I wanted everyone else to know; I wanted to share that with everyone. I encourage you as a young person or an adult to live your life for Jesus because He is King and He is worth living for.

Camp Joy has truly been the highlight of my summers for 14 years now. It is one of the few places that I know of where you can get away from all of the distractions of the world, and draw closer to God. Looking back now I can see even more of what an impact Camp has made on my life, and most importantly my walk with Christ. It is a place where the Gospel is presented clearly, life-long friends are made, and also some of the best times that you will ever have. Now I have the opportunity to work at Camp during the summer, and I would not trade that opportunity for anything. The principles that have founded Camp are what life is all about... Christ is truly King at Camp Joy!

Hello readers,

I have attended Camp Joy for 16 years of my life. I grew up as a camper there until I was too old to camp. Now I have the pleasure of being able to counsel and teach campers every summer. When I think of summer, I pray that every one that God gives me I will be able to attend Camp Joy. Camp Joy is a place where the world doesnít exist. Itís a place where it is just you and God. This is where I surrendered my life to Christ to answer the call to preach the GLORIOUS GOSPEL of the Lord Jesus Christ. If for one week every teenager in America could be in attendance here, it would change the course of our youth in America. If we lived our lives in a Godly manner, we could get our country back to where it needs to be. The values that your children can take home from this place are priceless. I would just like to encourage whoever may be reading this comment to strongly consider attending Camp this summer. If your life is in a wreck, or you donít understand why things arenít working out in your life, or you need answers to questions, Camp Joy is the place for you. As a former camper and as a current counselor, I would like to encourage you to attend. Though life may seem unfair, God has a plan for you. First, he wants you to have a personal relationship with him, and then everything else will fall into place. CAMP JOY - where CHRIST is KING and where boys and girls begin to live. This is where I began to live my life for Christ. Canít wait to see you all this summer in July.
