Camper Registration Starts February 1, 2020

Camp Joy 2020 dates are June 21st-June 26th

Registration for 2020 opens at 9 am on February 1st and closes at midnight on April 30th OR when we have reached registration capacity. We typically reach capacity around mid-late March. Wait-list registrations are reserved ONLY for returning campers who have attended Camp Joy in a previous year.

If your registration has been completed, you will receive a confirmation email with further instructions, Medical Form attached, and/or receipt/invoice. If you have not received this email (note that it sometimes goes to spam folder), your registration did not go through. Call or email to confirm if this is the case.

If COMPLETED registration (with proper Medical Form and payment) have been received by March 30th, our first round of acceptance notifications will be sent out no later than April 15th. All registrations MUST be completed by absolutely no later than May 15th.

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.
