JOY Bible Camp is a summer camp located in northeastern Ontario that hosts both Family & Children’s summer camping programs.  The camp is nestled on the shoreline of Faraday Trout Lake and surrounded by the forest.  JOY has been in operation for over 75 years and was born out of the vision of seeing generations of people transformed forever through Joy Bible Camp – cultivating in others a growing, authentic, contagious relationship with God.  We strive to do this through our Christian faith, fun, relationships with others, recreation, service and love.  Our heart is that through this beautiful place, the programs we offer and the people who come here to both serve and be served, JOY would be a place where everyone who comes would feel welcome, safe, refreshed physically and renewed spiritually.
