Important Update for Camp Joy 2020

We have CHANGED THE DATES for Camp this summer, due to other cancellations and postponements surrounding Covid-19.

We are STILL HOPING to be able to hold Camp Joy this year, and have moved the dates to JULY 12TH-17TH, 2020.

All times and locations will remain largely the same for the time being.

Our deadline for payment and submission of Medical Forms is still May 15th, unless otherwise arranged. Please call or email with additional questions or concerns.

As of Tuesday, March 3rd, Registration for Camp Joy 2020 is CLOSED for camp attendees.


If returning campers (who have attended in previous years) wish to be added to the wait-list, please call 585-371-8851. We cannot guarantee that wait-listed campers will be able to attend camp, but if there are cancelled registrations or incomplete registrations later in the Spring, you will be notified.

At this time NEW campers will not be admitted onto the wait-list. Please note that registration for Camp Joy 2021 will open on February 1st and fills up quickly!

For additional questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us as 585-371-8851 or Thank you.

The theme for this year is "Trust in the Lord"

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight”
Proverbs 3:5-6

Camp Joy at Rotary Sunshine Campus

Camp Joy is now in its 38th year and the 23rd 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.
