For over fifty years, Camp Victory Lake has stayed true to its commitment to touch lives and make a difference. This year is no exception to that commitment. In fact, we plan to build on the strength of this commitment and that is to provide an awesome camp experience in a safe and wholesome environment. If you have never spent a summer at our camp, then this is your opportunity to do so. 


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.


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

• Ulster County Fair


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.

Parents and guardians are welcomed to visit camp during the designated visiting days: Saturdays and 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.

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.


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.

  • I'm a college student and may not have the same address after the summer. What address should I use for my W-4?
    The address you need to put on your W-4 is the address you want your W-2 tax forms sent to next winter. If you are not sure where you will be living next winter, we suggest you use a parental address
  • Do staff have to have a medical checkup?
    Yes, all staff members must have a physical at least 11 months before coming to camp.
  • What are the terms for my work compensation?
    Summer camp employment is a missionary service. Work is compensated on a stipend status, not hourly wages.
  • Will I automatically be qualified for the Summer Ministries Scholarship?
    Summer Ministries Scholarships are awarded to employees on first-come first-serve basis and will be given at the Camp Directors discretion. Only a few scholarships are given each camp season.
  • Are the Staff background checked?
    All staff undergo a face to face/web cam or phone interview which lasts at least 40 minutes. As parents ourselves the caliber of our staff is of paramount importance. References are collected and all staff are entered into the NY State Sex Offender Registry Database. We also conduct an on line Nationwide Sex Offender Background Check. All International staff provide a criminal Background Check from their home country.
  • Where do Staff come from?
    Everywhere!!!! Many of our American Staff are from the local area but we also attract many staff members from out of state.
