***VICTORY JUNCTION CAMP:
The Victory Junction Gang Camp has been founded by Kyle and Pattie Petty as a retreat for children and will be in honor of their late son, Adam Petty. The mission statement of the Victory Junction Gang Camp is to enrich the lives of children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses by creating camping experiences that are memorable, exciting, fun, empowering, physically safe and medically sound.
The new Camp, to be located near Greensboro, NC, will be the seventh in the network of Hole in the Wall Gang Camps, founded for Kids by Paul Newman. With its scheduled opening in summer of 2004, it will join fellow Hole in the Wall Gang Camps in Connecticut, Florida, New York, California, Ireland and France.
The Victory Junction Gang Camp is a not for profit medical camping center specifically designed and equipped for children ages 7-15 who have life threatening illnesses. Campers will attend according to their illness type so that the children have the opportunity to socialize with those who have the same illness and so that medical expertise is provided to properly care for the campers.
