may use. We do however allow the campers to write home each week of camp.

We have two Senior Counselors per every 24 campers. We also utilize 4-6
Cadet Instructors to conduct the non-training portion of the camp.

age or are they separated based on behavior? A. The
campers are in a platoons of 24 campers each. The makeup of the platoon is

NO. Please don't send ANY money with your camper.

the grounds are 4x4 trucks and emergency vehicles.
6.) Q. Will the campers weight be taken into consideration
when assigning drills and exercises? A. Yes, We are
very careful to allow each camper the time to acclimatize and get used to
the physical demands of camp. Each week a weight census is taken to insure
that the campers are remaining healthy.
7.) Q. How does the camp handle such issues as
homesickness and other adjustment issues? A. We

12.) Does the camp have a camp discipline plan? A.
Yes, the camp is based on US ARMY protocols. We also facilitate behavioral

Camp Victory was
founded on four key principles:
for the individual's unique growth and needs
of an environment that emphasizes Self Determination
of an atmosphere encouraging personal confidence, self-esteem,
and a willingness to try something new
of a deeper awareness and appreciation of our family, our
country and God
pursue these principles through all our interactions with the
campers. At Camp Victory, we feel that camp offers an opportunity
to continue a child's education in an environment focused on personal
growth. In each activity, we would like our campers to experience
a progression of skill and knowledge. We believe that skill progression
develops the physical agility and mental acumen that will last
long beyond the mere 3 weeks of a session. The mastering
of these skills contributes to enjoyment and competence, as well
as develops self-esteem and confidence. In addition, we believe
it is important for campers also to see the rationale behind our
methods of instruction. Our goal is to help the individual child
gain skills and perspectives which will give insight into the
bigger issues in life. What a camper learns at camp can help him
acquire more important skills outside of camp: self-discipline,
self-direction, and shared responsibility.
this focus on the individual, we attempt to de-emphasize competition
between people. Successfully mastering a skill does not bring
a ribbon or "point," but rather a chance to learn more, to improve
that skill, and to enjoy an experience which utilizes even greater
expertise. Our efforts are to create an atmosphere which lets
a child know that improvement and success are up to him, and
will come as a result of his own efforts, not from having beaten
someone else. One might view that the main person for a camper
to challenge is who he was the previous day.
