Friendly Reminders

All four steps of the application must be submitted for each individual in order to be considered. You will receive an “Application Complete” email from Camper Admissions within 2-3 business days of submitting the application. This email will indicate that the application is currently being processed by the medical team.

Due to the high quantity of applications being submitted, please give Camper Admissions 2-3 business days to sort through faxes/emails (Example: Forms being sent in from medical providers). If you do not receive this email 3-5 business days, please ask your medical provider to re-fax the form.

Decisions will be communicated to families about two months prior to arrival day for each session. All applicants will receive a decision email. Sessions 1-4 decisions will be delivered between April 11 – May 1. Sessions 5-8 decisions will be delivered between May 9 – June 30.

Unfortunately, Victory Junction may not be able to accommodate all who apply to camp. While we would love to serve all applicants, we receive several applications for a limited number of slots to offer. If your camper is put on the waitlist, you will be notified if a camp opportunity becomes available. Please hold all calls/emails regarding the waitlist as we cannot tell you where your child is on the list. ​

This is an application process. Acceptance is not guaranteed.​
