Making Moments Matter
The primary purpose of Royal Family KIDS Camp is to give foster children ages 7-11 a week of positive memories and royal treatment in a Christian camp environment. Adult Camp Counselors give attention and encouragement to his/her “Big Camper” during their time at camp. In addition, each Camper is exposed to a variety of fun activities, designed for their success and to build self-esteem. 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.
Camp Directors, Staff and Counselors go through intensive training. This includes a study of the dynamics of child abuse and neglect, facilitated by recognized professionals in these fields. There is also an intensive screening process for Counselors and Staff. Two Children—and only two—are assigned to each Camp Counselor. In addition, there is generally a “back-up” Staff person for each Counselor, so the actual Staff-to-Camper ratio is often one to one.
There are strict policies for behavior of Campers, Counselors and Staff which assure that there is never an opportunity for an unsafe or questionable situation. Additionally, several strict and important measures are taken to ensure the camps are safe for the children. The campsite itself has been especially selected to provide a safe, fun place for the camp experience. The food is even great!
