Camp fees

A registration fee of $75 is required with each application. The fee is non-refundable should the camper not attend camp. The total fee is to be paid in full before the camper is accepted in camp. Payments can be made using Visa, Mastercard, Discover Card, money orders and/or certified checks. There is a processing fee for all credit card payments. Camp Victory Lake strongly recommends the full session to all intended campers, since it is our objective to help our campers to develop and foster lasting relationships with each other.


Meals served to campers are all vegetarian. The meals are well balanced and are sumptuously prepared for the developing child. Controlling the consumption of sweets is our preference, therefore we suggest that families minimize the amount of sweets sent to the campers.

Parent Visitation

Parents and guardians are welcomed to visit camp during the designated visiting days: Sundays between 11:00 am and 5:00 pm. All visitors to Camp Victory Lake should register at the Camp Office upon arrival. Campers will not be allowed to leave the camp grounds with any visitor without written permission from the camper’s parent or guardian.


Parents must make travel arrangements for their campers to and  from Camp Victory Lake. Camp Victory Lake will provide transportation to and from the Poughkeepsie train station.

Telephone Calls

Since it is the goal of Camp Victory Lake to provide an atmosphere of independence and personal development for each camper, we strongly discourage incoming and outgoing camper calls. This does not apply to emergency cases. If the staff feels that receiving a call from home will enhance the camping experience of a camper, that avenue will be used without hesitation. We highly recommend that parents write to their campers instead of calling on the telephone. For business calls to Camp Victory Lake, please call (845)229-8851. For the Nurses Station call (845)229-8851 EXT. 206. Cellular telephones should not be in the possession of any camper.

Health & Safety

The health and safety of the campers is of paramount concern to each staff member. Each camper must have a completed physical examination within one month prior to arriving at camp. A copy of this examination must be sent to the camp prior to or brought to the camp when the camper arrives. No camper will be accepted without a current physical. The camper must be up to date with his or her immunizations, this includes a Tetanus Booster shot. For safety reasons, a recent photograph of your child should accompany his or her application.

REcreational Field Trips

As a part of the summer camp program, the camper will attend several recreational field trips throughout the Hudson Valley area. The fees to these trips are a part of the cost for attending camp. Our options include attractions such as:

• Zoom Flume/Splash Down

• Hudson Valley Renegades Baseball Game

• Bounce

• Wildlife Sanctuary or Zoo

• Roller Skating Rink

• Bowling Alley
