It’s hard to believe, but next year will be our 20th year of overnight camping. For the first two years of our development, while we were still raiding funds and volunteers were building our first cabins, we could only offer day camps. With only a few completed cabins and a total of 325 campers, five groups were eagerly anticipated.
Fast forward 19 years to the summer that just ended. This year our 12 cabins housed 1,524 campers at 27 different specialized camps. They came from 55 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, as well as many other states. The prevailing attitude was, “It’s so wonderful to be just one of a crowd.”
In the past 19 years, we have hosted a total of 19,392 campers, an average of more than 1,000 each year. We look forward to our 20th year, assured that we will welcome our 20,000th happy camper well before the season ends.
What an exciting time to be a part of Camp Victory!
