Camp Joy plans to be a hub for sustainability education for people of all ages.

Camp Joy in Clarksville, Ohio has had a strong mission of inclusion since desegregating in the 1940s. The camp also provides a number of programs for families who couldn't otherwise afford a summer camp. Now the mission is growing with a new commitment to the environment.

The directors plan to run a completely net zero camp in the next ten years. They aim to be a nationwide leader in natural resource utilization and a hub for sustainability education.

Joining "Cincinnati Edition" to discuss these sustainability efforts are Camp Joy Executive Director Jennifer Eismeier; Outdoor School Program Director Nate Hirt; and Donovan Energy Partner Andy Holzhauser.
