    Camp Victory: 
    Camp Victory Texas, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded to make a positive difference in the lives of sexually abused children, ages seven to sixteen. Thousands of girls are sexually abused every year in the United States which profoundly changes their lives. The goal of the program is to create a safe environment in the form of a three-day camp where survivors can play and sing, know that they are neither alone nor responsible for what happened to them, and develop self-affirming behavior along with appropriate and effective social coping skills.

    Each year, the Houston branch of NCJW organizes a half-day of reunion, fun, and relaxation for child survivors of sexual abuse and their counselors who attended Camp Victory Texas.  Learn more about Camp Victory at http://www.campvictorytexas.org/
