Camp Ladore’s JOY Program is a discipleship and training program, employing over 30 teens age 14-17 throughout different areas on campus. Positions include counseling, dining hall (Carousel Workers), babysitting, and laundry. This program is primarily designed as an extension to The Salvation Army’s Corps Cadet program that runs through the school year. Corps Cadets are strongly encouraged to apply, though we often have positions available for non-Corps Cadets as well. Ultimately the goal is to grow teens in the ministry of Camp Ladore and The Salvation Army. Apply and show us your skills!
Joy Discipleship Program participants meet regularly in small groups to discover God’s Word as found in the Bible, and its application to our lives. The program focuses on job experience, practical skills and most importantly: spiritual growth. As a first job opportunity, we teach our JOY participants valuable job and leadership skills that help them to excel at work, school, or play. As they wrestle with their faith and life’s lessons, we work together to foster a sense of belonging and seize opportunities for personal growth. Are you ready for something new?
As a close knit community, JOY Program participants live and work together. That means we celebrate each other’s accomplishments and strengthen one another in difficult times. The JOY Discipleship program is a chance to make life-long friends and enjoy our beautiful outdoors. Come ready to participate in each other’s lives and share what makes you you!
With the closure of our summer camp this year we are going online! Please join us for E-JOY from the comfort of your home.
E-JOY continues to be devoted to spiritual growth (Jesus), camp participation & outreach (Others), and personal growth (Yourself). It will be small group based with periodic large group Zoom functions and partner activities. We will have JOY Gatherings and you will also have J.O.Y. responsibilities between meetings that may correlate with the online camper program.
