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
