Attendees had an opportunity to take a tour of Camp Victory on a tractor-pulled wagon while also learning about the camp’s history and opportunities to get involved as volunteers as Camp Victory continued its ongoing celebration of its 25th anniversary by hosting the second of two Business After Hours in October.
Camp Victory, founded by Denny Wolff, who made a brief appearance at the event, hosted its first residential campers in 1994, making 2018 the 25th year of overnight camps. In 1994, there were five camps that brought about 325 campers to Millville. Since then, Camp Victory has hosted over 30,000 overnight campers and counselors, and today offers over 30 camps annually from February-November. For those interested in volunteering, there are numerous opportunities to do so. Anyone interested can contact the camp at 570-458-6530.
Members also had an opportunity to enjoy some great-tasting food, including some seasonal fall treats such as apple cider, prepared by Camp Victory’s in-house food services director, Gail Truax, who also doubles as assistant camp director.
Business After Hours provide regular opportunities to build business relationships while learning about the services offered by other Chamber members. The next Business After Hours will be held at the Central Susquehanna Community Foundation, located at 725 W. Front St., Berwick, on Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
