Camp Joy – A new Freedom Station of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (NURFC)
On April 18, 2006, JOEC was included as a new “Freedom Station” with NURFC. JOEC’s work with its living history programs and history as the region’s first co-racial, co-ed camp provide a great connection to the values and mission of NURFC. The Freedom Stations Program is a national outreach program linking organizations engaged in Underground Railroad research, historic preservation, and/or contemporary freedom struggles through the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
