Victory Junction / Campfire Chat

Hello Friends of Happy Campers!

Richard Petty (King of #NASCAR) at Victory Junction
Richard Petty (King of #NASCAR) at Victory Junction

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a summer camp counselor? Or, what happens long after the summer ends? Former counselor Olivia shared this...


I started college knowing that I wanted to go to medical school but wasn't sure what specialty I might want to pursue. After my first year of college at UNC, I decided to volunteer at camp as a barn and cabin counselor and I had the time of my life!


I had never felt such joy in my life.


Seeing kids, who are often denied the simple joys of childhood, get to ride a horse, fly down a zip line, and swim in the lazy river is special beyond measure. It was here that I knew I wanted to dedicate my life to Pediatrics and give as many kids as possible the same opportunity to engage in the childhood activities that everyone deserves.


During my time at camp, I grew in so many ways. I learned to be creative in adapting activities. I learned how to fill 5 hour rain delays with fun and excitement. I had the honor of being trusted by campers to talk about the challenges they face every day.


But most of all, I learned that life is all about perspective.


I met hundreds of children who face immense challenges year in and year out, yet they demonstrate incredible resilience and joy. This lesson, and many others, have stuck with me and I have carried it through my education and work, passing it on to many people that I meet.


It is difficult to explain all that Victory Junction has done for me.


Camp is my home and my community, and there is truly nothing better than spending a summer at the happiest place on Earth. While camp is a physical place, it is truly more of a feeling. And it is our responsibility to carry camp magic and happiness wherever we go.


Olivia was a volunteer in 2014 and part of summer staff from 2015 to 2018. Now in her third year at medical school, she hopes to return to Victory Junction in the future as part of the seasonal medical team.


Your support provides unique opportunities for campers, counselors, and volunteers to come together. Between the thrills of the zipline and laughter in the water park, there are moments of learning - where kids know they aren't so different, where the importance of inclusion is clear, and where futures are forged to create a better world for everyone. 


Thank you for being part of our community of love, acceptance, and hope. Together, we are building a better world for everyone. 


On A Personal Note

This writer is an avid supporter of Victory Junction, both as a monthly contributor and media advocate.  


NASCAR Race Mom had the privilege of touring the Victory Junction Camp in May of 2017. The camp's purpose "to enrich the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses by providing life-changing camp experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering; all in a medically-safe environment at no cost to the camper or their family" is evident everywhere. The photos below were taken on that tour.
