Royal Family Kids’ Camp is a one week resident summer camp especially designed with the foster child and other at-risk children in mind. These camps are part of a growing network of camps nationwide. The camping experience is geared for success, recognizing the needs of abused, neglected and abandoned children. The activities are non-competitive, non-threatening and fun.
Each child is paired with an adult counselor (there’s a strict ratio of one adult counselor to every 2 campers). All counselors and staff are volunteers who have been carefully screened and trained to work with children in the foster care system, so you can be assured your foster child is in good hands.
At camp, your foster child will receive lots of individual attention in a wholesome environment, participating in a variety of fun and educational activities such as:
- activity centers
- climbing wall
The attention of caring adults, building friendships with other children from the “system” and the thrill of successfully completing projects and sports results in a host of positive memories and enhanced self-esteem.
A Week of Positive Memories
As a foster parent, you’re the real hero; providing an abandoned or abused child with a safe home and security. But you may need a break. And your foster child’s life and outlook can be enhanced by happy memories which can aid in the healing of the scars of abuse and provide a foundation for future happiness.
There’s a camp “grandma and grandpa” who share hugs and stories and listen to children – and in many ways, they fill a vital role for children who may not have grandparents or may never see them. There’s a camp theme which emphasizes to foster children that they are loved, important and cared for.
