  • Description - Joy of Jesus

    RESIDENTIAL CAMP: Over the years, Joy of Jesus has provided unique residential summer camp experiences for more than 18,000 Detroit youth (ages 8 to 18), most of whom have come from low-income, single parent households. Camp activities are designed to promote leadership development, ethical behavior, conflict resolution, academic achievement, sportsmanship and discipline while having fun and exploring nature. Camp Jubilee typically offers eight weeklong sessions (four for boys and four for girls). Campers enjoy swimming, canoeing, fishing, archery, a 25-foot water trampoline, hiking, biking, baseball, soccer and football fields and more. SUMMER DAY CAMP: The Summer Day Camp is an eight-week program that serves as a safe haven for inner city youth (ages 6-18), to learn, play and grow. The day camp uses both our Youth Embassy and Real Life Learning Center buildings. The Day Camp operates Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The innovative curriculum of our Summer Day Camp challenges youth to increase their Intelligence, Intensity and Integrity through Character Development and Life Skills, Rap Sessions, Bible studies, basketball and other sports clinics, computer and game room activities, arts and crafts, employment skills training and summer jobs program. Youth are segregated into age appropriate groups for character development, life skills, recreational and educational programming. Breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack are provided to every child. The Summer Day Camp also incorporates several field trips and community service projects.
