The sky’s the limit! Campers get to cut loose and feel free, whether they choose to soar on a zip line, conquer the 55-foot alpine tower or fly on the giant swing. Safety is always first – each child always wears the proper harness, safety line and helmet. Kids who spend much of their time in a chair may easily ascend the tower with help from a pulley system and highly trained counselors.
Imaginations run wild in our Arts and Crafts center! Kids can tap into their creative side as they create masterpieces in the woodshop, paint or draw with friends, and create slime in the art lab. Everyone loves to take home their creations.

A splash pad, lazy river, huge motorcycle slide and water cannons draw campers into the cool confines of our water park. It is a refreshing favorite for all the kids who come through our gates. The pool has a zero entry so that it is accessible to everyone, including children in need of one of our waterproof wheelchairs.
Built thanks to the generosity of Hendrick Motorsports, the Fuel Stop is food central at camp. The Fuel Stop team leads the efforts to provide delicious meals and appropriate menus that meet the dietary restrictions of our campers.

Sports & Rec Center
This full-size gymnasium offers something for every child! With a focus on playing, campers can participate in a variety of games. There is a mezzanine level where kids can relax with friends, shoot pool or play ping-pong.
Boating & Fishing
From the universally-accessible pontoon boat to canoes, kayaks and paddleboats, every camper can get out on the water on the seven-acre Victory Junction lake. On our accessible fishing dock they can catch a bass, striper or trout. Their catch must be kissed before release. Of course is if a child prefers not to kiss a fish – not to worry – counselors can do it!
Campers go to the Fab Shop, our full working salon, to look faaab-u-lous! Kids are all smiles as they take on fun and funky styles with temporary hair color, makeup and manicures.
Kids learn the basics of archery – and we have adaptive equipment so everyone who wants to shoot, can, at our range. There’s never a shortage of singing, dancing and balloon popping bullseyes.
Not only is our name different – our care is different, too. We provide campers with everyday needs, like band aids for scraps and ice for bumps and bruises. We also provide infusions, dialysis and administer oral chemotherapy. We meet every need of our kids because they are our top priority.

Riding one of our horses is an experience unlike any other – especially for kids who put their crutches and wheelchairs aside. Inside our barn, kids can interact with llamas, ponies and more.
Our alley is always a party with music, an arcade and of course, bowling! We believe in success, not gutter balls, so bumpers and special ramps are available. We can even turn on black lights for extra fun!

Taking care of the spirit is as important as taking care of the body. For those who want to nurture this side of themselves, Victory Junction offers the Spiritual Center, a place where optional, all-faith worship services may be held. Parents can also participate in small group discussions on family weekends, or enjoy a solitary area for quiet reflection.
It’s an opportunity for campers to dress up in costumes and explore their creative side. Throughout the week campers may participate in skits and role-playing activities in the theater.
