Calling all prayer warriors!
(scroll to end for prayer requests)
Camp Victory's primary mission is to share with youth and adults the incredible love of Jesus Christ through relationships built during our summer programs and retreats. Our slogan FAITH ~ FRIENDS ~ FUN is lived out each year by the thousands of people who visit the camp to build their FAITH, create lasting relationships with FRIENDS, while having an incredibly FUN time.
Be joyful always, pray continually: give thanks in all circumstances
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Charles Spurgeon was used by God to bring the gospel message to thousands, maybe millions. In his words:
"prayer has become as essential to me
as the heaving of my lungs."
We all long for that type of a prayer life, but the point is that Spurgeon understood the need for prayer and he had some faithful prayer warriors that continually held his ministry up before God. We can do the same for Camp Victory.

“[In school] I went straight to the bad crowd. I got into fist fights… I smoked weed… I said to myself ‘I’ve had enough of this’… At the end of the first week of [camp], people were saying to me ‘Wow, you really matured. You’re like a whole new person. We love you. You’re a great role model.’ After my [time at camp] I really missed camp… So now I’m a sophomore and I’m in love with Jesus. I attend church every Sunday. I have friends from camp [who] always want to hang out. I never go a day without someone from camp calling or texting me. I pray for forgiveness and strength for what I need to get through the day. Camp Victory has given me friends, the love of Jesus, love for others, love for myself, [and] love for my family. Camp Victory is such a positive place. It changed my whole life around.” – Ricky
It is our pleasure to announce the Building The Dream Phase III capital campaign to expand the ministry and site of Camp Victory Ministries, Inc.
Camp Victory is at an exciting and challenging fork-in-the-road. Much like God’s people in the Old Testament as they crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land, Camp Victory is taking a faith step of growth. We need to expand our facilities for 2 vital reasons:
In just one year, Camp Victory has had 400 more campers for the summer camp sessions than any previous year. There are growing numbers of people who want to use Camp Victory, but cannot because the camp does not have the space capacity. Our proposed facility expansion will further the Kingdom of God by being able to host a larger number of campers.
The Building The Dream Phase III capital campaign will include three key elements: 1.) Additional dining space, 2.) Additional bed space, and 3.) An indoor multi-purpose facility. The total cost for this campaign is $950,000.00
Because of the situation we find ourselves in and because of the gifts God has given to us, we are very confident that we can do this with His help.
Please pray for the spiritual and material success of this undertaking. Watch as more details unfold this spring and look for scheduled presentations to attend. Visit our website at www.campvictory.com or call us at 507-843-2329 to learn more.

In 1943, ten couples began a new adventure to serve children and their families: Camp Victory! Over the course of these 70 years more than 50,000 campers have attended Camp Victory.
Parents, families, churches and foundations have found our efforts worthy of their support. Without their help we would not be able to influence the lives of children and their families. For many, support of Camp Victory has become a lifelong passion.
