1.) Q. Will I be able to talk with my child on the phone during camp?  A. We are sorry but due to the fact that this is a wilderness camp, we do not have phones that the cadets may use. We do however allow the campers to write home each week of camp.

2.) Q. What is the camper to counselor ratio? A. 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.

3.) Q. Will the campers be placed in a group according to 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 based on the placement decisions of the Commander. 

4.) Q. Will the campers need any extra money for camp? A. NO. Please don't send ANY money with your camper. 

5.) Q. Will parents be able to visit the camp before or during camp? A. We are sorry but our camp is in the middle of 18,000 acres of wilderness. The only vehicles that may access 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 understand that the youth and children will be homesick and may for the first time be away from home. We work with them and help them process their new surroundings and their feelings.

8.) Q. What if my child gets sick or injured and cannot attend camp after we enroll? Are there refunds? A. According to the camper application:  

If for any reason your son is unable to attend camp after his application has been processed, our monetary return policy is as follows:  

One month prior to the camp date, you may request $500 of the fee be returned to you. Less than 30 days prior to camp date but before opening day of camp, you may request $150 of the fee be returned to you. If we reject the application, thereby denying your son enrollment in the program, the full amount will be refunded to you.  

9.) Q. Whom do I call if there is an emergency during camp? A. You will be given a 24 hour live contact phone number upon induction for camp. You may call this number for any need.

10.) What items is my child not allowed to bring to camp? A. Anything not on the list that will be provided after acceptance of application.

11.) What if my child does not want to participate in a given task? A. All activities and tasks that he will assigned are required. If he is fearful we will help him overcome his fears. For most of the campers, they will do things during camp that they never thought they could do. This builds a great sense of accomplishment and pride.

12.) Does the camp have a camp discipline plan?  A. Yes, the camp is based on US ARMY protocols. We also facilitate behavioral change by the immersion into a highly structured and demanding daily living experience.

 

Our basic philosophy...

Camp Victory  was founded on four key principles:

concern for the individual's unique growth and needs
creation of an environment that emphasizes Self Determination
development of an atmosphere encouraging personal confidence, self-esteem, and a willingness to try something new
encouragement of a deeper awareness and appreciation of our family, our country and God

  We 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.

Supporting 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.
