Victory Junction Gang Camp
|Motto||Feel your heart race|
|Type||Residential summer camp|
|Affiliations||SeriousFun Children's Network|
Victory Junction is a camp for children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses located in Randleman, North Carolina, USA. It is part of the SeriousFun Children's Network, formerly the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps.
Adam Petty who was a teenage stock car driver (as well as the son of veteran Kyle Petty), not only had a passion for racing, but a passion for helping others. Between races, Adam took the time to visit pediatric hospitals and spent time with children who were battling chronic illnesses. In 2000, Adam tragically lost his life in a racing accident at New Hampshire International Raceway when he was only 19 years old. To honor his memory, the Petty family gathered their strength and, as a part of their healing process, challenged themselves to build a place where seriously ill children could experience life and celebrate being a kid.
On June 20, 2004, Father's Day in the U.S., Victory Junction welcomed its first campers.
Victory Junction is open year-round and can accommodate about 128 campers at a time. Victory Junction is a state-of-the-art facility, offering innovative and accessible programs that are purposefully designed to provide endless possibilities for campers. Victory Junction had the honor of serving children from all 50 states and six foreign countries.
Facilities at Victory Junction include a climate controlled water park, a 24-hour medical facility staffed by caring pediatric and disease-specific professionals educated to each camper's unique healthcare needs, a horse barn providing therapeutic recreation for campers through the opportunity to experience horseback riding as well as interaction with donkeys, llamas, sheep and more.
