Camp Joy|Flat Rock, North Carolina

We’ve been hanging out at Camp Joy in Flat Rock, NC this past week. I know, I know! I can’t seem to stay away.

There’s a reason for that.

These people love EVERYBODY. Literally. The campers and the staff. It is so refreshing. The world would be a MUCH better place if we loved even HALF as much as they do.

Camp Joy North Carolina is held at the Bonclarken Conference Center. Bonclarken stands for Good-Clear-Vision (Bon-clar-ken). What an appropriate name. As soon as I drive through the gates, my vision clears. The weight of life slides off my shoulders somewhere around the Flat Rock exit and I feel lighter.

Climbing the rock wall and riding down the zip line were part of this week’s activities. So much love and friendship between the counselors and campers! I have a hard time coming up with adequate words to describe the counselors. There will be a special place in heaven for these souls.


Would it even be camp without an eighteen person canoe?!

We are excited to be working all four sessions this summer! Stay tuned for more features…
