Camp Joy partners with organizations and hospitals to help children and their families manage a medical condition/illness through weekend camp and retreat experiences. Some of the benefits of a Family Camp include:
- Family Unity: Provides families with an opportunity to create memories together in a fun setting.
- Education: Educates children/families about the illness in a non-medical setting
- Relationship Building: Provides an opportunity for children/families to learn and bond with other managing a similar condition.
- Fun!: Wholesome outdoor recreation, creative arts, and adventure activities
Joy works with agencies and organizations to custom tailor the programs based on the organization’s goals.
