Dear Parent/Guardian,

We never take for granted the privilege of investing into your child. We know how much your child means to you, and the Joy El team has dedicated their lives to helping children know Jesus and developing their relationship with Him.

Every year, our surveys indicate that parents know their children will receive quality spiritual instruction and age-appropriate activities in a safe, wholesome environment at Joy El’s summer camps. This is important to us, because our mission is to provide opportunities for people to experience life-change through personal encounters with God. Every decision we make is with that goal in mind, including screening and hiring summer camp staff, menu planning, activity scheduling, etc.

Thank you for considering sending your child to summer camp 2020. In the midst of a chaotic world, summer camp is a place where children can experience peace. They will get outside to play, get to know friends and caring counselors, and draw closer to their Heavenly Father. And have a lot of fun throughout the process!

I recommend signing up for summer camp early!

–Aaron E. Ziebarth, Executive Director

Ready to make 2020 the best summer your child has ever had?
