About Victory Junction

Victory Junction is a year-round camping environment for children, ages six to 16, with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. Founded by Kyle and Pattie Petty in honor of their son Adam, the camp is located in Randleman, N.C. with a second location opening soon in Kansas City, Kan. Victory Junction offers programs for 24 disease groups and maintains strong relationships with 30 partner hospitals. Victory Junction's mission is to provide life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, in a safe and medically-sound environment. As a not-for-profit organization, the camp operates solely through the support of generous donors to provide this experience at no charge to children and their families.

Creative programming and activities make the experience an unforgettable time for each and every camper. A child enjoys activities at the full size gymnasium, silver theater, arts and crafts centers, marina, water park, horse garage, and of course the Adams' Race Shop. The NASCAR theme is prevalent throughout the camp, exposing the campers to the fun world of NASCAR including sights, sounds and the feel of a true race track!
