Due to shortages in Nursing Staff, a majority vote of the Board of Directors has determined that Camp Joy cannot move forward for 2022. For this reason, Camp has been cancelled and refunds for all Camper registrations will be issued immediately. Please contact us for instructions on how and where to process your refund. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Camp Joy at Rotary Sunshine Campus

Camp Joy is now in its 41st year and the 26th year of partnership with the Rochester Rotary, who provide a charitable trust grant. Camp Joy and Rotary have a common goal of serving persons who are developmentally disabled.

The campus is located in Rush NY, 15 miles South of Rochester, NY. A camper’s disability is not the focus at camp. Independence and ability are stressed with every program in which they participate.
