Programs

Fostering Hope in Michigan is the umbrella organization that operates local Royal Family KIDS (RFK) and Teen Reach Adventure Camp (T.R.A.C.) programs.  We serve Mid-Michigan kids and teens who are in foster care, or have been in foster care. The organization is 100 percent volunteer operated, with volunteers donating 30,000 hours each year to confront abuse and change lives.  These volunteers also fundraise a $120,000 operational budget each year.

Teen Reach Adventure Camp™ (T.R.A.C.)

MEFC Teen Mentoring

MEFC Teen Mentoring is a local program run by Midland Evangelical Free Church that allows T.R.A.C. campers to be mentored through age 18 to help them navigate their teenage years to adulthood.

Royal Family KIDS® Camp

The primary purpose of Royal Family KIDS Camp is to give foster children ages 6-12 a week of positive memories and royal treatment in a Christian Camp environment. 

 

When a kid goes to Royal Family KIDS Camp they receive the attention and encouragement of an adult camp counselor and his/her “buddy camper”. In addition, each camper is also 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.

Royal Family Kids® Mentoring Club

Royal Family KIDS Mentoring Club is for any child 7-12 years of age that has attended a RFK Camp. Kids meet with mentors for a minimum of four hours per month, plus attend a monthly Mentoring Club meeting. 

 

Studies have shown that having at least one caring adult in a child’s life can make a huge difference in the life of that child. We also encourage the building of community for the kids, through the monthly club meetings. Club is a place where the kids can reconnect with kids and staff they met at camp and build friendships and a sense of belonging to a community. The mentoring club runs from September through May.

Teen Reach Adventure Camp™

The primary purpose of Teen Reach Adventure Camp (T.R.A.C) is to improve and enhance the lives of at-risk youth age 13-16, now and in the future, by helping them to develop teamwork skills, trust, self-value and respect for others. 

When a teenage goes to Teen Reach Adventure Camp, it changes the statistics of foster youth by offering an amazing adventure camp that is not just fun, but life altering. The T.R.A.C. model offers RFK graduates and other teens in foster care, a camp that is designed to focus on building trust, teamwork skills, work ethic and self-value.
