We believe that children who experience chronic health problems or catastrophic illness, or who are physically or mentally disabled, need help and encouragement to cope with their lifelong challenges. Recognizing the sense of isolation and frustration these challenges can bring to the children and their families, Camp Victory’s founders ensured that the design and building of the various facilities would incorporate their special needs.
At Camp Victory, partner groups with specialized knowledge and training operate camps for children who live with chronic health disadvantages. The children receive the greatest possible care, support and personal growth, have much fun and make many friends.
We believe that by sharing their challenges with each other in the relaxed atmosphere of a summer camp, the children become mutually supportive, teaching each other confidence, courage and self-esteem. We believe that the personal growth children experience at Camp Victory remains with them throughout their lives, helping them achieve a greater measure of independence, thus benefiting them, their families and the world around them.
Our greatest reward is constantly rediscovering that the children bring to every camp a quality of joy, love and extraordinary kinship. It’s these special kids who truly make Camp Victory a special place.
