Since its foundation in 1982, Camp Joy – a week-long overnight summer camp for developmentally disabled adults – has thrived as an ENTIRELY volunteer based organization. To maintain our Christ-centered, inspirational, fun-filled experience for the 100 individuals who attend camp every year, we need volunteers like you!

Camp is held at the Rotary Sunshine Campus in Rush, NY, and this year will be June 23rd-28th (Sunday-Friday). Both full- and part-time staff are needed, full room and board are provided for full-time staff, and there is absolutely no monetary requirement for volunteers and no previous experience with this population needed! Part-time volunteers are welcomed to meals while there.

Please consider being a part of this outstanding organization and share the experience of a lifetime to continue to make this camp possible for so many individuals who desire this fulfilling experience. As all volunteers need to have background checks, registration, even if unsure of dates available that week, needs to be done as early as possible. For more information or to register as a volunteer, visit our website: Past and returning volunteers from Immanuel will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. Just ask Barb Stam, Cheryl Davies, Deb Huehn or Carol Galskoy for more information.
