For the Children Royal Family KIDS® Camps
The primary purpose of Royal Family KIDS Camp is to give foster children ages 7-12 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 the children, it is the best week of the year – a special time when they can focus on having fun and enjoy being a kid.
Some Activities Include
RFK Camp #6
July 22-27, 2022
Royal Family KIDS happens when Christian men and women give of
their time and talents to bless our children and youth.
To begin the process of volunteering start here:
Fill out the request information form, below.
An initial interview to answer your questions and determine program suitability. An application will be sent to you via email after this interview.
A complete background screening is required.
12 hours of training (provided by the local RFK Staff).
The camp counselor is at least 18 years of age and will assist in meeting the individual camper's needs: spiritual, emotional, social & physical. They create "PMA" Positive Mental Attitude at camp.
Teen staff is 16-18 years of age and are examples for our campers and as such need to be solid in their faith. They lend a hand throughout the camp and fill in where extra help is needed.
Life guards work to keep campers and staff safe during waterfront time. They encourage the kids when trying to achieve a higher swim level so they can go into deeper water.
If you like to build things with wood and can hit a nail square on the head, this is your calling. You'll provide campers with guidance as they build pre-made kits that they can take home from camp.
Activity center workers provide guidance to campers during activity time. This is a fun volunteer role for adults who like to encourage creativity through crafts,painting and board games with the kids.

WHY I VOLUNTEER
I love to "play" with the campers especially at the water front. I serve as a grandma now so often can have quiet conversations with campers when they need a little extra attention.
I enjoy volunteering at camp because we are able show the kids that there are people that truly care and love them unconditionally. Watching the boys and girls grow up into young men and women is well worth the time and financial investment! Oh, and because we HAVE FUN!!! :)
Volunteer since 1999
I have been a grandma at camp, a job I just love! Sometimes it involves doing some crazy stuff to help the kids just be kids. Other times it is giving a child a hug or encouraging a counselor or being a listening ear. It’s a fantastic ministry!
