ROYAL FAMILY KIDS
Confronting Abuse & Changing Lives
Every year, more than 3.2 million children in America are reported as abused, abandoned or neglected. One in seven Americans are sexually abused as children. Tragically, 1,500 to 2,000 children die each year at the hands of their caretakers. And the remainder are simply (sadly) neglected or experience a combination of these abuses. Every day innocent children are forced to accept abuse as a fact of life…they are beaten, locked up, sexually abused, starved and tortured in an obscene variety of methods.
There is hope for many of those children through Royal Family KIDS. Since 1985, RFK has been offering week-long summer camps for foster children of abuse who have been placed in foster care. For many of these children, a week at summer camp is a first. It is a life-changing experience for kids (and the volunteers!)
Camps are sponsored by individual, well-established Christian churches of various denominations.
Royal Family KIDS goals are to change more lives with the effective demonstration of compassion by:
Royal Family KIDS is an international organization whose goal it is to have 100,000 foster children ages 6-12 in one of our Camps or Clubs.
Wondering if there is a Royal Family KIDS Camp near you? There probably is because we offer over 200 camps in the US and 24 camps overseas! Just in 2015, 7,748 campers got to experience the fun of building bird houses, tipping their counselors out of inner tubes, snacking on S’Mores and hearing the Gospel. From Alaska to Florida to California to South Africa, Royal Family KIDS Camps serve children around the globe. In many locations, an additional Club and Mentoring program takes place, allowing children the chance to develop on-going relationships with camp staff throughout the year. These long-term positive relationships with caring adults help children develop self-confidence and a feeling of belonging to a community. The weeks we spend with foster children creates fun, positive memories for a child in need of care and love.

The primary purpose of Royal Family KIDS Camp is to give children a week of positive memories in a Christian environment. In addition to receiving the attention and encouragement of an adult camp counselor and his/her “buddy camper,” each camper is also exposed to a variety of fun activities, designed for their success and to build self-esteem.
Activity centers, games, sports, hiking, swimming, fishing and horseback riding are all part of the program, depending on the schedule of the local camp. For most of these children, it’s the best week of the year – a special time when they can focus on having fun and enjoy being a kid!
