Joyful Hearts Summer Camp

Joyful Hearts Banner

Joyful Hearts Summer Camp is for individuals with developmental disabilities, providing a quality 5 night summer camp experience in a safe, Christian environment.

Campers take part in the usual summer camp activities, such as swimming, canoeing, archery, games, arts & crafts, worship, Bible studies, campfire, faith building activities, and many more, but each activity is modified based on the camper’s needs. There are also special activities each day, all of which help make this a truly unique and memorable experience!

  • Monday – Horse Ride
  • Tuesday – Bingo
  • Wednesday – Talent Show
  • Thursday – Wagon Ride and Dance (Bring a nice outfit for the dance!)

Our staff and volunteers are trained in working with campers with a variety of disabilities and committed to ensuring each camper receives personal guidance and assistance as needed. We strive to maintain a one-to-one, or in some cases, two-to one ratio of campers to staff/volunteers to ensure each camper has the best possible camp experience.

Anticipated COVID Protocols

As this is a changing situation it is too soon to be able to finalize protocols, but this is what is anticipated based on what is known at this time.

CDC, Federal, State and Local guidelines, recommendations, and mandates regarding COVID safety will be followed.

Campers are encouraged to be fully vaccinated and boosted per CDC guidelines, with proof of vaccinations provided as part of the registration materials. If a camper is not or will not be fully vaccinated and boosted by the start of camp, proof of a negative COVID test just prior to arrival at camp will be required.

Campers will be required to sign a COVID self-screening & release form that will be provided closer to the start of camp.


Payment & Cancellation Policies

Deposit & Payment
A non-refundable deposit is required to register. Payment of the remaining balance is due by May 27, 2022, if not included at the time of registration. 

Deposits are non-refundable. No refunds will be granted after May 27, 2022. If a camper leaves early due to homesickness, disciplinary reasons, or parent request, no refund will be given.


Camper Expectations

It is our goal that everyone who attends Camp LuWiSoMo is encouraged and strengthened in their faith through authentic community, outstanding staff, experiential activities, and intentional faith building. To ensure a safe and positive Christian environment for every camper, Camp LuWiSoMo expects each camper’s behavior, speech, and clothing are appropriate for the Christian atmosphere we are trying to model.
