Our Response

COVID-19 Response

Updated: April 8, 2020

Camp Victory is making every effort to do our part to promote the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, campers and staff.    Our goal is to ensure our camper families and retreat guests that we are closely monitoring the CDC, State and local guidelines.  We will remain current on the latest information on how to mitigate and manage COVID-19.  Campers, Staff and Volunteers remain our highest priority.

At this time, Camp Victory has canceled Overnight Camp for the 2020 summer season due to financial factors related to COVID-19; after prayer and consideration by the board of directors, this decision was made based on the future financial strength and further ministry of the camp.  Classic Day Camp and a modified Day Camp Plus program are still available beginning the week of June 22.   We have extended the season to eight weeks.  We are now going through the week of August 9-14.   Classic Day Camp is for children entering K – 6th grade and Day Camp Plus is for youth entering grades 6 – 9.   There are now three specialty camp options available for Day Camp Plus.  Please visit the website for updated information.

Dr. Joseph Furst, Camp Victory’s Administrative Doctor, has been with Camp Victory for fifteen years. “As part of the camp’s health care team, we are continually monitoring the CDC, State and local authorities for the latest information on the coronavirus.  Camp Victory employs registered nurses during the summer who are trained and prepared to deal with emergency care and the general health of our campers.  We are taking specific steps to ensure the safety of your campers and our staff during this time.  As a health care team we regularly perform ongoing reviews of our procedures to ensure the safety of our campers and staff.”  

Camp Victory will use enhanced sanitization procedures to ensure increased disinfecting of high use and high touch areas.  We will continue that practice even after it is safe to return to the workplace.   At this time Camp Victory is closed through May 4 to all campers and guests as required by State officials.  Summer camp registrations remain open.  We anticipate that summer camp will operate as normal and look forward to your campers joining us this summer.

“In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in in conformity with the purpose of His will, in order that we who were the first to put our hope in Him might be to the praise of His glory.”  Ephesians 1:11-12

We recognize that this is a very fluid situation.  Our plans could change as conditions require based on directions given by the CDC, state and local authorities and our County health department guidelines.  This page will be updated as appropriate.  Thank you for your understanding.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (507) 843-2329.


Camp would not be able to run without the support of our community, friends, and Camp Victory family! Every little bit helps, so consider giving today!
