About Family Camp Weekend

Family Camp Weekend is designed specifically for families of children affected with heart disease. The weekend is full of fun family activities, informational sessions for parents and sharing with other families who have had similar experiences. Activities are planned throughout the day for all ages.


Families of children ages 0-21 affected by congenital or acquired heart disease, as well as adult congenital heart disease patients and their families. Camper eligibility will be determined by our medical board.


Family Camp Weekend 2019 will be Friday, May 17 - Sunday, May 19. Registration will be open soon - please check back for updates.


Joy Outdoor Education Center in Clarksville, Ohio, located about 50 minutes north of downtown Cincinnati on 315 acres of beautiful countryside. Hiking trails, a fishing pond, high ropes courses and an indoor climbing wall are just a few of the amenities that Camp Joy has to offer.


Charming, rustic cabins with bunk beds and modern shower and bath facilities. Two to three families per cabin. All meals will be provided.


Children and adolescents ages 8 and up may stay in a cabin without their parents, although parents must be present at the camp. Camp Joy counselors will be supervising children enjoying the minicamp option. Space in the minicamp is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
