Victory Junction Camper Stories Making a Difference by Making a Splash

Victory Junction focuses on making sure each and every camp activity is fully accessible for campers of all abilities.

The waterpark truly embodies the idea of providing campers with the opportunity to participate in something they may not be able to do outside camp. This is the first experience of a waterpark and pool for many campers and it never disappoints.

With a wheelchair ramp like zero-degree entrance, lifeguards, and pool wheelchairs, the waterpark is capable of providing a great time for all campers. Beside being fully accessible, the waterpark offers many different activities for campers to engage in.

“My favorite thing I did at the waterpark was when I played games with all my friends in the hot tub.” Camper Caroline, 16

There is a water slide shaped like a motorcycle, lazy river, basketball goal, splash pad, hot tub, and a deep end for campers who want more of a challenge. Being able to accommodate many different ability levels allows campers to interact with each other at their own pace while being comfortable.

When you think of being a kid during summer, playing at the pool is one of the first things that come to mind. Victory Junction is proud to make being a typical kid in the summer possible for each child that attends camp.

“Some kids cannot get fully submerged under the water due to their medical condition so it’s nice to have other parts of the waterpark that are accommodating to them.” Counselor Emmy

Since many Victory Junction campers do not have an accessible pool back home, the waterpark is always a favorite program to visit and is looked forward to by all.

Not only does the waterpark make a splash, it also makes a huge difference for campers, their experience at camp, and the memories they take with them when they leave.
