LEGENDS ARE MADE HERE
More intense? More competitive? Even deeper relationship building than our day camps? If you asked yourself if this was all possible, the answer is YES! Our LEGENDS overnight camp for students entering 7th-11th grades offers all the fun, adventure, and spirit of our day camps, while increasing the scope of our activities and conversations.
As always, our Closing Day is special; a mixture of awards & recognition, and the culmination of competition that has been brewing all week. We promise you don’t want to miss it, parents are encouraged to come participate and observe during this time!

What do I need to know about Bus Transportation?
CG Victory offers a fully staffed bus service from select cities in Texas. We encourage our camp families to take advantage of this extremely economical and convenient travel option. Also, it is a great way to kick-off the camp experience as campers meet new friends and connect with the CG Victory staff on the trip. Bus transportation is an additional fee based on the city you are traveling to and from. Please contact email@example.com to make your reservation.
Our goal is to make the travel experience quality, convenient and fun! We work together with reputable bus companies in trying to provide a quality experience based on a variety of factors including reliability, driver friendliness, professionalism and quality. In addition, CG Victory ensures each bus has a minimum of 2 ALL-STAR staff!
Travel Staff Training
As part of our staff training and orientation, staff are trained in supervisory responsibilities including travel safety, health, camper monitoring, emergency procedures and check-in/check-out protocols. In addition, all of our staff carry personal cell phones and camp families will have access to those numbers in advance to directly contact our staff with any urgent questions or emergencies.
As a combination of privacy concerns and the desire to create a quality experience free from the distractions, we strongly discourage the use of electronics. Transmittable devices such as cell phones or tablets with data plans, non-transmittable devices such as iPod, mp3 players or tablets without data plans, are permitted while traveling but are not permitted once at camp. Upon arrival, all electronic devices are labeled and secured and delivered back to the camper at the end of the camp session.
We request that all campers pack their own lunch for the trip to CG Victory Legends. CG Victory provides lunch and a snack (where applicable) for campers traveling home from camp. All buses are supplied with sanitization supplies and bottled water for camper use.
We request that luggage be restricted to two (2) pieces, a suitcase and backpack. Campers may bring a small carry on such as a backpack or satchel on the bus. In most cabins, suitcases are stored under bunks and cannot exceed 15 ½” in height. Please be sure to clearly mark and tag each piece of luggage. Upon arrival, CG Victory Staff will unload and assist campers with their luggage.
Is there a camp nurse?
Our health center is staffed by one registered nurse. It is the camp policy to notify parents of an illness, accident or injury in the event the camper is seen by the camp nurse. Should medical bills be incurred, parents are fully responsible for payment. We’ll have contact information and interfacing capabilities with the nurse as camp approaches.
What if my camper has medication?
All pills/capsules (prescription and non-prescription) must be checked in with our camp nurse upon arrival on Opening Day. The medication taken on a routine basis will be individually packaged and sorted according to day and time of administration. If prescription medication is not in pill/capsule form (liquids, eye drops, topical, etc.) they will be dispensed as indicated.
What if my camper has an allergy?
Campers that have any type of allergy, whether food, drug, environmental or other, must notify CG Victory via the Health section of their registration in CampSite or they must submit to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to their parent account. Please be sure to indicate the allergen, the reaction and the treatment if exposure occurs. If the camper has a potentially life threatening allergy, a band will be placed on their wrist on their arrival, with their allergy written on the band. Food allergies must be discussed in advance of the session and alternatives planned for the session. Supplemental foods are usually requested.
What if my camper has physical or medical restrictions?
Each instance is considered on a case by case basis, and final acceptance lies with the discretion of the camp director in consultation with the camp medical team.
What does my camper bring to camp?
Packing List coming in the Spring!
Can I contact my child while they’re at camp? How?
Telephone calls from parents or friends to campers should be limited to an emergency basis. Please feel free to call the Camp Director if you need to discuss something relating to your child. Campers are not allowed to use the telephone during their stay at LEGENDS except for radical emergencies.
What is your behavior, supervision and bullying policy?
CG Victory aims to address camper behavior that negatively affects the experience of others in a decisive and timely fashion. CG Victory has a zero tolerance policy for bullying and should a camper be seen bullying another camper for any reason it will warrant a meeting with our Executive Director and the parent will be notified immediately to make a swift decision on whether the camper should remain at camp for the remainder of the week. Our staff’s goal is to prevent negative behavior before it happens by continually monitoring camper behavior and having the appropriate training with our staff and intentional conversations with campers on Opening Day. Our cabin counselors are the first line of “defense,” but all staff members are trained to work together to attempt to eliminate misbehavior of any kind. Our entire Summer Staff is trained to recognize, prevent and resolve camper misbehavior issues, such as bullying.
How are cabins arranged?
There are six cabins with 32-36 beds that are bunk style. Cabins are grade and gender specific, and we aim to keep campers within one grade of each other (8th +9th, 10th+11th). Three – Four staff members are in each cabin.
Are cell phones allowed at camps?
Due to privacy concerns and to create a quality experience free from the distractions of electronics, transmittable devices such as cell phones or tablets with data plans will not be allowed at camp. Non-transmittable devices such as iPod, mp3 players or tablets without data plans, are permitted while traveling but are not permitted once at camp. Upon arrival, all electronic devices are labeled and secured and delivered back to the camper at the end of the camp session.
Valuables Clause: CG Victory is not responsible for anything lost, stolen, or broken while at or traveling to LEGENDS Overnight Camp. Please pack accordingly

What is the age range of campers who attend CGV Legends Camp?
Campers entering 7th grade through campers entering 11th grade are eligible to attend Legends. We like to use grade level versus age so that campers who are younger or older for their grade are not excluded.
Who are the staff at CGV Legends Camp?
Our staff are college students that come from all around the state of Texas. They are outstanding role models who love mentoring and coaching, and are certified in CPR/first aid. We also provide them with training in mediation and reconciliation guidance.

Do boys interact with girls?
Boys and girls will share common space during our Morning Show, Evening, Rally, U-Pick Time and campwide games. However, they will be with their same-gendered cabin and counselors during that time. At no time or event will any camper be isolated with the opposite gender. Camp and activities are designed to have them bonding and growing with a same-gendered counselor and campers.
What is the cabin experience?
Campers will be bunked with other similarly-aged same-gendered campers. There will be 6-18 campers and 2-3 counselors per cabin, each camper having their own bunk and area to store their belongings. Our ratio is set to be 1 counselor : 6 campers
