Camp Joy provides outdoor education to kids who would not otherwise be able to afford camp.
Camp Joy provides outdoor education to kids who would not otherwise be able to afford camp.

For 80 years Camp Joy has welcomed youth for a summer of outdoor education. At its heart is an ongoing mission of inclusion that began when the camp desegregated in the 1940s. Today, Camp Joy in Clarksville, Ohio has a number of youth programs for children who would not otherwise be able to afford a summer at camp.

Joining us to discuss Camp Joy's 80th anniversary and its programs are Executive Director, Jennifer Eismeier; leader of the Youth Camp Programs, Joel Van Egbert; and Counselor Khalia Washington.
