Kiddo had the MOST AMAZING WEEK of his life last year. He sobbed when we came to pick him up from camp - he absolutely did not want to leave, even though we were going straight to Disney World from there. And we just got the news that he gets to go back to camp again this summer - woohoo!
Did I mention that camp is completely free for all children? As long as a child qualifies and gets in (there is a waiting list), there is no cost to the family.
That said, running a camp like this isn't cheap. If we had to pay for it, camp would cost us $2,500 for a 5-day session. Because of this my family does anything we can to help raise awareness and money for Victory Junction, and on May 15 we had the chance to do just that.
We spent about an hour working the crowd outside the booth, encouraging people to purchase pins to support Victory Junction. Having Kiddo there to talk to people - the child is NOT shy, that's for sure - and tell them about his time at camp was a great bonus! I think we sold about 100 pins while we were there, and at $10 each, that's a pretty good donations for camp. This sale is going on at every race track for the entire NASCAR season so that will add up to quite a hefty sum.
