Camp Joy Outdoor Education Center was originally founded in 1938 as a summer camp for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and has grown into a year-round operation serving children, schools, families, businesses, and organizations. JOEC’s beautiful 315-acre campus is located in Clarksville, Ohio (Warren County) and within 35 miles of Cincinnati and Dayton. Modern meeting, overnight, and dining facilities are nestled amongst JOEC’s rolling hills, meadows, and woods. Located at Camp Joy, the Rachel A. Hutzel Observatory opened in October 2014.
