This year’s Camp Victory was our biggest and best yet! 21 superheroes and their siblings came out to Optimist Acres for fishing, arts and crafts, fire safety lessons, a wood crafting activity, and pony rides…just to name a few of the fun activities.

Special thanks to our volunteers from Greer Middle College, Charter High School Fishing Team and First Baptist Church, Dr. Doug and Nancy Rayner, Clarka Wickliffe, the Pauline Fire Department, the Spartanburg Breakfast Optimist Club, ACME Exterminating, Hope Remains Youth Ranch, Office Depot and Home Depot for helping us with making these activities happen!

Thank you to Abstract Design for designing our awesome t-shirts, and Larry’s Trophies for creating our trophies, Trinity United Methodist Church for providing transportation to and from Optimist Acres, and Upstate Printing & Publishing for printing programs for our special Friday celebration,

Thank you to Palmetto Palate for providing nutritious meals during camp days, and Tommy Lancaster for bringing barbecue on Friday night.

Last but certainly not least, thank you to Steve and Vickie Holt, the creative masterminds behind Camp Victory! They worked tirelessly for months getting everything together, and we sincerely appreciate all of the hard work they put into making this year’s camp the best ever!

Mark your calendars for next year! July 10, 11 and 12 at Optimist Acres. Next year’s Friday celebration will be at Cleveland Park on July 14. Stay tuned for more information!
