We have a few requirements that our volunteers must meet. Due to the special needs of our campers, volunteers must be 19 years of age or older.

Fall & Spring Opportunities
Our family weekend program runs during the fall from September through November and the spring in March and April. The fall volunteer application opens on July 1st and the spring volunteer application opens on November 1st.
Medical Family Pal
As a health-care professional, you have the option to volunteer as a Medical Family Pal. Medical Family Pals are paired with a family and serve as their guides throughout the weekend. That means welcoming your family to camp, escorting them throughout their camp experience and enjoying the joys of camp with all members of the family. Your role is very import because as the initial face of Victory Junction and the family’s constant representation, you have a major part in the feel of camp and the community that is established. As a Medical Family Pal, you carry a “First Aid Backpack” with limited medications and supplies to be made available to our families and other volunteers should they be needed.
You must be licensed appropriately and eligible to practice medicine or nursing in North Carolina.
Our summer camp program runs from June through August. The summer staff and volunteer application opens on December 1st.

Unit Nurses work side-by-side with our full-time medical staff to provide primary care to a group of 25-32 campers with specific diagnoses. Job responsibilities include following each camper’s individual plan of care as detailed by their home physician or specialist, providing needed treatments, medication administration, and supporting the Full-time medical staff with paperwork. Unit Nurses must be a certified RN with experience to be considered.
Volunteer Medical Staff
We rely on our wonderful network of volunteer nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, physician assistants, and pharmacists to provide the best possible care for our campers. Registered nurses are responsible for administering medications and providing routine, daily care to our campers. Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants staff the Body Shop to assess and treat conditions that may arise throughout the week. Pharmacists and some nurses are needed for check-in days on Sundays only.
