The big red heart on the Spiritual Center always flashes with a rhythmic beat while camp is in session, because our campers are the heartbeat of camp.
Whenever someone on camp asks, ‘Victory Junction, how do you feel?’, everyone responds with the camp cheer, starting with, ‘We feel soooo good!’
At Victory Junction we never say ‘Goodbye.’ We always say ‘See you later!’ and look forward to the next time we see our camp friends.
Every camper and counselor is a part of a Unit. This is their family for the week – units gather for meals, hang out during daytime activities and even bunk together. Campers and counselors show their pride by wearing their Unit color head to toe and shouting their cheers. When all of the Units are together, there is a competition to see which has the most camp spirit. Learn More
One of the highlights of our summer camp sessions is NASCARnival, a NASCAR-themed carnival filled with fun! Each NASCARnival revs up with a NASCAR race team performing pit stops on Victory Junction’s very own race car. The fun then kicks into high gear with carnival games, face painting, a dunking booth, and so much more! Kids can enjoy popcorn, cotton candy, and other snacks as they explore all the fun activities. Campers can even take their counselors for a ride with them in a tethered hot air balloon – what a night to remember!
All of our program areas have unique qualities and cool things that happen. You’ll have to find them out for yourself when you visit, however here is a look inside some of our neat program traditions:
After tackling the Adventure Zone, counselors and campers reflect on their climb. Then, campers are given a symbol of accomplishment – a bracelet made from rope used to climb the tower. Campers have a memory they can hold onto, and wear, forever.
Archery is one of the most popular activities at Victory Junction, and our campers celebrate their marksmanship at the range by doing the Bullseye Dance, an enthusiastic cheer that can heard clear across camp.
At camp, we live by catch, kiss and release when fishing on our lake. Legend has it, the only person that has ever caught Sikapotat, the biggest fish on our lake, is Richard Petty. Will Sikapotat steal your bait?!
The counselors and campers assigned to your cabin become a part of your camp family almost immediately. Every night before lights out, counselors facilitate a time for campers to reflect on the day, talk about their personal challenges and other things that may be on their mind. Many campers open up during cabin chats and friendships that extend way past camp departure day are created.
Stage Day is a camp-wide showcase of talent and fun. It’s an opportunity for campers to dress up in costumes and explore their creative side. Campers and counselors perform on stage, star in skits, sing their favorite songs or play instruments.
At the end of every breakfast and dinner, the Fuel Stop (our dining hall) turns into a dance party and everyone cuts loose and dances! After every lunch, we have a sing-along session and we sing silly camp songs and wind down before Recharge (our quiet time).
Campers and counselors gather around a campfire at the end of every session. Counselors perform skits, everyone sings songs and Wish Sticks are collected. Each camper writes their hope or wish on their Wish Stick before the sticks are added to fire to make their wish come true.
