Sponsoring Events

Joy El would like to invite you to sponsor any of our events. We provide four direct opportunities for sponsorship each year.

During the fourth Saturday in April, we hold the Joy El Jubilee, an all day community event that showcases the programs in our ministry. Throughout the day, numerous activities take place all over the Joy El campground. Volunteers and staff members provide events such as face painting, chicken dinners, camp activities, haywagon rides, and much more. We use this time to encourage the surrounding communities to get to know us as well as prospective campers, Bible Adventure students and their families. The day averages over 1100 visitors. We need several corporate sponsors to help us provide this day.

In November, we hold “Stewardship Banquets.” The banquets are held at locations in Lancaster and York and at Camp Joy El. The evenings are filled with music, testimonies from program participants and great food. Our sponsors are very valuable in underwriting the costs of these banquets. We are seeking approximately 65 table sponsors as well as 3 to 4 premier and premium sponsors.

Many businesses consider these events excellent opportunities to advertise their company while supporting a worthwhile cause. If you are interested in sponsoring any of these events, please contact us at 717-369-4539  or email [email protected].
