Mission-Core Values Statement
At Joy of Living Camp, we are called to love kids and communicate hope.
We do this by...
Honoring God consistently
Our heart’s desire is to honor God with our lives, words, and service. Our aim is to
reflect His glory to everyone we have the honor to serve in the context of God’s
creation through the ministry of Christian camping.
We are committed to selflessly serving those who use the facilities of Joy of Living
Camp in ways that eliminate unnecessary distractions, enhance the camp experience,
and support the spiritual goals of our retreat groups and campers.
Within the context of Godly stewardship, we will make the resources of Joy of Living
Camp available to as many as people as possible without regard to an individual’s
ability to “afford” the experience.
In every area of our camp ministry we desire to honor Jesus by doing our best. We
will strive for excellence in all that we do.
This is essential to a positive experience for our campers, guests, vendors, and staff;
and God’s desire for His children. -
