Agency/Open Enrollment Camps
The Joy Experience
2023 Camp Registration – NOW CLOSED
Fostering Success (ages 9-15)
Camp Joy is partnering with the Children’s Home of Cincinnati and local foster care agencies to provide a unique, hands-on camp experience for youth within the foster care system. The goal of the program is to empower foster youth through education and support while increasing their developmental assets with expectations that they will learn, grow and succeed throughout their lives. (Program consists of 9 monthly overnight weekend respites and a 5-day summer camp experience for youth).
We went to Camp Joy to learn teamwork and to have fun learning. My favorite activity was the underground railroad reenactment because it seemed so real, and it just comes to show how bad slaves were really treated. I personally learned how to deal with people that I’m stuck with or with people that don’t like too much. Camp Joy affected my school year in a way that I would work together much better with people. Camp Joy was a lot of fun.
Thank you for for being my trail group leader. Throughout my time at Camp Joy you helped me and led us through our groups’ difficult times. You were also really fun singing all of those songs while we were hiking. I also thought that you were really good in the Underground Railroad play through. You probably would have caught us because of the way that we had escape. Thank you for helping me throughout Camp Joy, you should always know that I will never forget Camp Joy because of you.
Thank you again for providing our campers with a phenomenal experience. It is always a great opportunity for them to connect with other campers who share in their same medical condition and make lasting friendships with their peers.
The excitement of learning and growing at Camp Joy all begins with our first connection with you.
We are excited to get the opportunity to meet you and show you camp! If it is easier, just give Tia a call at 513-478-9282
