Although each camp that uses the Camp Victory facility is unique, there are many aspects of each day that are alike.
Each morning you’ll wake up with all of your camping buddies and counselors in your cabin group, get dressed for a busy day of fun activities and then head to the dining hall for a yummy breakfast. After breakfast and morning announcements, you’ll head off to some of the great morning activities with your group….these activities might include: archery, the zip line, fishing or maybe the climbing wall. When the morning activities are over, it will be time to head back to the dining hall for a delicious lunch. There might be a little “down time” after lunch, but then it’s back to more great camp activities like arts and crafts, swimming, and paddle boating. After a fun-filled, busy day, everyone is always ready for a special dinner with the whole camp! After dinner, you’ll head back to your cabin to get ready for the night activities! Everyone gathers together for these special activities that might include a campfire, a dance, talent shows, carnivals, or parties! Then, back to your cabin to get ready for bed….lights out and a great night’s sleep will get you all ready for another busy, fun day at Camp Victory!
