A week-long summer camp for abused, neglected, and abandoned children. The primary purpose of Royal Family KIDS Camp is to give children a week of positive memories in the “Cathedral of the Outdoors.” Through the collaboration of community organizations, the Department of Health and Human Services and local churches a “three-stranded cord” is formed to make camp a reality for hurting children in our area.
What Is Royal Family KIDS Camp?
How was last Summer 2020?
Singing, dancing, praising, fishing, swimming, climbing, conquering fears, finding faith, seeing love in action were all things we had planned for camp in 2020. Sadly for our kids, the global pandemic prevented it from happening. With the help of prayer and volunteers, we were able to give care packages to the campers and provide them with a virtual week of camp, but they missed out on the amazing experience of camp itself. We intend to make up for that this year by making it better than ever for them!
How do you see Camp impact the Campers?
In the words of Leah* an 11 year old camper
“My counselors have taught me how to live my life and have been really fun!”.
Her dad said, “the camp was well organized with tons of fun activities. What impacted me the most were the close relationships formed and the love extended to the children in that week.”
Another former camper and now staff member said:
“I feel like I can make a difference in some children’s lives and that is all I ever really wanted to do when I decided I would come back…But besides all that, I can not forget the number one reason that I came back which was truthfully for the counselor I had my last two years of camp. She made a big difference in my life and I promised myself that I would come back and serve God with her.”
