Who and Where Is Joy El?

Joy El Camps and Retreats, one of the premier Christian retreat centers in PA, provides that feeling of being a million miles away and is the perfect getaway camp location for Christian youth group retreats, Christian adult retreats, church leadership retreats, and so much more.  Close to the Pennsylvania / Maryland state line, the town of Greencastle, PA is located in the south central area of Pennsylvania which is within driving distance for much of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. Check out directions to Joy El HERE.

Joy El can comfortably accommodate 300 over-night guests and offers several brand new and newly updated meeting rooms for groups of all sizes including a separate dining hall and a full size indoor air conditioned and heated gymnasium!

Our sole purpose and mission is to “provide opportunities for people  to experience life-change through personal encounters with God”. This process begins the moment you call. If we are both successful in our missions, then a “personal encounter with God” is something will that last for eternity in the lives of your campers.
