Hi, my name is Rose the reason I want to be a part of RFKC is because I see how much it has impacted my life. I've attended the camp twice once at 9 yrs. old and the second time at 12 yrs. old. I'm currently 18 yrs. old and proud to say I'm graduating high school and I've been accepted to Henry Ford Community College and will be attending in Fall. Royal Family planted God's seed in my heart at 9yrs. old and when I came back at 12 yrs. old they watered it, My love for God still grows til this day. I want to attend camp this year, to help other children and give them hope that being a foster kid doesn't have to define you. With God's love and the right choices I believe that I can have a life that I couldn't even dream was possible before. Please help me attend camp this year so I can help other kids dreams come true also.

Royal Family KIDS is about treating people royally, making moments matter and moving forward. In the summer, abused and neglected children 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.
Making positive memories doesn’t stop at camp! Our campers are then matched one-on-one with a mentor staff from camp. We reunite the campers each month at Club, continuing the spirit of camp with themed lessons, activities and camp songs. Their mentor is oftentimes the only consistent person in their lives, reminding them that they are not abandoned.
