About JOY Bible Camp:
JOY Bible Camp is a non-profit Christian Camping & Retreat Centre committed to seeing Lives Changed Forever through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We long for generations of people transformed forever; cultivating in others a growing, authentic, contagious relationship with God, deepening their roots of faith through service and love. For 75 Years, God has been at work using JOY as a place where people encounter Him, are equipped for Him and are empowered by Him to serve His kingdom.
JOY is a place that provides families with restoration and respite
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” Romans 12:12-13..
JOY is a place where kingdom living is modeled and generations are impacted
“And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams”; Lives changed … forever Acts 2:17
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
