Camp Hands of Joy

Date: June 1st - 11th, 2017. A HUGE success!

Camp Hands of Joy

This year's Camp Hands of Joy was a bigger success than we could have imagined!  Nine years ago our little camp for deaf children in the Dominican Republic provided 35 children with a week-long camp experience filled with lots of fun and new experiences.  As time has passed, our camp has grown to over 330 children!  Praise God!  Pictured above are the children from two separate camps - 15 Years and Younger and 16 Years and Over.  Some of these children come from very loving home environments, but most come from horrible living conditions where they are looked upon as not worthy of love, proper nutrition, or even a basic education.  Slowly the hearts and minds of the Dominican people are changing, and charitable organizations like Hands of Joy are helping in that effort.  Photos of Camp Hands of Joy 2017 will soon be posted to our website.  If you would like to view photos of previous year's camps, visit the DermacareCARES page under the About Us tab.
