Volunteering at Victory Junction

Few things are more rewarding than helping a child expand their boundaries and achieve things they never thought possible. Our volunteers play a large part in that process. Are you looking for that type of experience? 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. Volunteers are also required to provide us with a physical, TB test, and immunizations (Hepatitis B, MMR, Varicella and Tdap). Please reach out to Claire, our Volunteer Director, if you have any questions.

So You Want to be a Volunteer…

Our summer camp program runs from June through August. The summer volunteer application opens on December 1st.

Cabin Counselor Volunteer

Volunteers take care of the daily needs of six to eight campers. The job requires being actively involved in the supervision, guidance and motivation of campers by building working relationships with the kids and staff to ensure that a high standard of care is maintained. Cabin Counselors are expected to sing, dance and be silly- we play like kids!

Dining Hall Crew

Assist the Kitchen Manager/Chef with various duties which will includes setting up and cleaning up after each meal.

Stables Crew

Assist as needed in the stables. This includes leading campers on horses around our arena, participating in animal adventure, grooming, cleaning stalls and general stable duties.

Transportation Crew

Help transport campers from various parts of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. One third of our campers need our assistance in being able to get to and from camp and drivers and ride alongs are needed on arrival and departure days. All trips will originate from camp and we provide the vehicles and training. CDL license is not required but is highly recommended.

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.

Crew Chief

Crew Chiefs are paired with a family and serves as their guide 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 important 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. In short, laugh, play and care for your campers!

Volunteers are needed during our fall and spring weekends to help prepare, supervise and facilitate one of our program areas at camp.
