Joel Morris grew up fairly close to Camp Joy in the small town of Leesburg Ohio. It was there that he developed his love for the outdoors, and adventure. Joel attended Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio and obtained a degree in Ecotourism and Adventure Travel. Upon completion of his studies, he sought out employment at Camp Joy with the Outdoor School Program as an educator in 2008. Starting off as an educator for almost three years, Joel then took on the role of the Outdoor School Program coordinator. After three years as a coordinator, he left Joy to start a family, but couldn’t stay away too long. After a 5 year absence, he returned to his previous role. In 2018 Joel transitioned into his current role with Venture Out!. His passions in life include raising his daughter and spending his time outdoors, especially if it’s on the golf course.
