It’s not easy being a parent with a child who has special needs. In addition to energy spent in typical family life, there are doctor visits, therapy appointments, time off of work, and insurance negotiations. The expenses can quickly add up, making it difficult to add “extras” into the family budget. Victory Lane Camp realizes that while all families can benefit from a camp experience, affording it may be another matter.
Victory Lane Camp wants to ensure that all families can go to camp. VLC automatically pays half of the costs associated with a family attending a camp session. Camp costs cover lodging, food, training sessions, and activities that combine therapy with fun and education. On-staff medical and therapy personnel ensure that each child’s needs are met. Serving families come alongside each Victory family to help with daily tasks, errands, and just to enjoy camp together.
We ask each family to contribute a small amount toward camp costs and then help with fundraising the remaining amount. These fundraising efforts support the Family Scholarship Fund, which was established to help families of children with special needs afford camp.
Your small investment will result in one of the most memorable weeks for your family. Here is what some of our families are saying about their camp experiences:
“We felt like everyone was there to support us and help us understand how to help our child.” -Natasha
“Unless you experience it, you just don’t know. This was well worth it.” -Todd
“When I take my son out in public, people stare at him because he’s different. At Victory Lane Camp, I’m watching my son in a pool laughing and playing, and people are playing with him and engaging with him.” -Cindy
