We have canteen three times a day. The kids are able to buy items such as drinks, candy, shirts, souvenirs, and more! The prices range from $0.25 to $20. $20 will get your child snacks and drinks throughout the week.


Can I chaperone?


Yes. All chaperones must have a background check prior to staying at camp. Because of Ky Court Justice regulation Camp Joy is unable to request free background checks. All chaperons need to complete Background Check Form RU-004 and send $20.00 to Camp Joy at least 30 days prior to the week they plan to attend camp. For safetly reasons, there will be no exceptions. If your church has an updated background check on file please call the camp office and we will discuss if we will be able to use it.
