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 and Discipline
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 short time 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.
46 HOUR WILDERNESS TREK- BOYS 12-17 - 46 hour wilderness camp experience designed to allow campers the opportunity to face odds and obstacles in the outdoor environment.
MISSION: Camp Victory Wilderness TREK is a 46 hour Wilderness Camp for boys 12-17 who are facing behavioral problems in their families or schools or who lack personal confidence. It is based on the fundamental principles of honesty, teamwork, faith and courage. These ideals bring young men back to the basics and teach them the importance of respect. It is operated in a wilderness setting with minimal conveniences, which serves to maximize opportunities to search one's heart and learn respect and purpose for life. Recruits are challenged to build their own shelters, prepare their own food, and participate in physical and mental competitions that build self-respect and teamwork. Campers will hike 4 miles to setup a military base camp.
OBJECTIVE: CVWT utilizes a military style outpost camp to instill in these young men a sense of self discipline, self worth, honor, courage and respect for families, authority and our country.
The objectives for each youth are as follows:
a.) To improve his decision-making skills;
b.) To identify negative habits and list ways to develop positive habits
c) To improve peer relationships by identifying negative peer characteristics and listing positive character traits that would be found in a positively-influencing peer;
d) To increase his awareness and appreciation for
e) To learn wilderness skills and be able to demonstrate proficiency in each skill;
f.) To learn study skills, improving his academic ability.
CVWT accepts boys ages 12-17 who currently exhibit behavioral problems at school or at home. These behavioral problems may also include social or emotional issues. Because of its short duration, boys are not accepted who have current problems with the law; past unlawful activities will not prohibit a boy�s entry into the program, but will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the administration.
