Victory Junction Family Weekend
Stigmas and public misperceptions can create isolation for those with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI), IDD, and substance use disorders. Public sites and activities that encourage participation by people of all abilities help foster familiarity and awareness that there are more similarities than differences.
Trillium is partnering with Victory Junction, an inclusive camp located on 84 acres in Randleman, North Carolina, to offer separate family weekends for children with IDD or in therapeutic foster care. Victory Junction enriches the lives of children with serious illnesses by providing life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, at no cost to children or their families.
Kick off of the First Family Weekend of 2019!
Weekends for families of children with IDD will cater to experiential opportunities—allowing them to experience activities they may not have the chance to in traditional camp settings.
Therapeutic foster care families will enjoy unique bonding opportunities through a trauma-informed approach sensitive to their needs and recovery.
Social integration in communities for those with an IDD helps limit stigmas and public misperceptions. Public sites and activities that encourage participation by people of all abilities help foster familiarity and awareness that we all have more similarities than differences.
Victory Junction will host Trillium families on April 5-7, 2019 for two weekends of excitement and bonding, in a beautiful setting with medical personnel and trained staff onsite.
The application process is handled by Victory Junction and is available here. Space is limited and applicants must be a child (under the age of 18) diagnosed with IDD and a member with Trillium.
