New local start-up company “Gives Back” to the Victory Junction Gang Camp
March 15, 2010 - Last Fall, our new company approached the Victory Junction Gang Camp to see if our products and services could be of value to the campers and staff. Within a few seconds of the meeting, the two administrators’ faces lit up, the smiles beamed – and they said - “Yes we most definitely have a need for your products and services, it’s already posted on our wish list, and where have you been this whole time?”
Well, this month, the Victory Junction Gang Camp gets one of its wishes as thousands of chronically ill children will finally be able to use the outdoor facilities, so nobly donated by Nascar’s finest. Climate Control Systems of the Carolinas (CoolingTheCarolinas.com) is installing its fully custom high-pressure Misting Systems to cool the kids during the hot months.
They'll be helping to allow the campers to utilize the outdoor activities, which run during the hottest months from May through September. In the past, the campers typically make it to the third hole at the Putt Putt Course (the campers favorite), but then the heat takes its toll and then they have to come indoors. Also, people afflicted with MS cannot tolerate heat and the misting systems will allow them to enjoy the activities that many people take for granted. Besides cooling, the systems will also minimize insects, dust, and odors thereby creating a healthier climate for the children.
Through the use of customized fans and static misting lines, coupled with high-pressure pump stations – the goal is to create cooling breezes without getting the campers and staff wet. Our systems are designed to cool (up to 20 degrees) without the wetness and the soaking that traditional systems afford. The company spent the downtime in the winter to custom paint the fans and components “bright and cheery colors” to match the façade of the Camp. The company has also installed systems at a few residences on Lake Norman in addition to a well known local restaurant in Cornelius.
