The Camp Joy Summer Program is a four-week, day-long summer camp program. This program is available to Boston residents with disabilities, ages 3 - 22, and their siblings, ages 3 - 7.
Camp Joy provides an inclusive and supportive environment. Participants receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch. We also offer door-to-door transportation, eliminating barriers to services. Each BCYF Camp Joy site has a licensed nurse. All program staff are professionally trained and CPR certified.
Youth in the Camp Joy Summer Program take part in activities that encourage peer-to-peer interaction, such as:
- group games
- adaptive sports and gym time
- arts and crafts, and
- field trips to local sites, including the zoo and bowling alleys.
