Hello! Welcome to my fundrasising page for Royal Family Kids Camp 2016!
If you don't already know, Royal Family Kids Camp is a camp where kids in the foster care system can spend a week away from the home life and have a chance to just be kids. Kids from Wayne, Washtenaw and Oakland Counties come to camp for FREE. Over 100 volunteers take time off work and away from their families to let those kids know that they are loved and there is hope. We give them positive memories that can change their course in life forever.
I am excited to be embarking on my third year of camp. Camp has been such a growing experience for me: growing in my love for the cause, growing in my understanding of the foster care system, and growing in my faith with my Lord and Savior.
I keep coming back to camp because I love the cause; our job is to show these kids God's love all week long. We have an ongoing bible story, we sing and dance all week, and we have various activities that keep the kids engaged and excited about learning about God. Being a returning staff, it is so exciting when we see familiar faces of campers and they are excited to see our familiar faces as well.
After camp, we have the awesome opportunity to mentor one of these kids through Royal Family's mentoring program. We reunite the campers each month at the church with our Club program at the church, then we can part ways and either do activities as a group or one-on-one with the mentee. I mentored a young girl this past year and it was the best experience.
