What Do We Do At Camp?

IMG_1191 (1)RFK looks a little different than a lot of summer camps, because our campers come from very different backgrounds. Many of our kids have been in several homes in the past few years, may have backgrounds of trauma, abuse, or severe neglect, and may not be in touch with any of their biological family. Our goal is to make their week at Royal Family KIDS Camp an absolutely unforgettable experience where they feel safe, loved, and most of all, like kids!

We have very high ratios of adults to children to ensure everyone is safe, and to facilitate close, IMG_0044 (1)healthy relationships between the staff and campers. Each counselor only has 1 or 2 campers, and no adult is ever alone with a child. Thanks to our donors, we are able to provide anything the kids need that they may not bring with them: clothes, shoes, towels, toiletries, etc.

We do lots of “typical” camp activities: woodworking, arts & crafts, swimming, games, and sports. Every night, there’s an evening activity for all. We have a 4th of July party since our camp falls on the holiday, a Variety Show for all the campers to show off their singing/dancing/drama/bug catching skills, and of course, Everyone’s Birthday Party! Everyone’s Birthday Party is a signature RFK celebration that was born at the second ever Royal Family camp when the director realized, in his conversations with the campers, that most of them never got to celebrate their birthdays. At Everyone’s Birthday Party, every camper is sung to, loved, and celebrated. We play games, eat cake, and hand out gifts for every child.

IMG_0178 (1)Our RFK values are: Treat People Royally, Make Moments Matter, and Keep Moving Forward. We strive to incorporate all of these values into every aspect of camp by giving our campers a week they will always remember being treated like princes and princesses. Though we only get a few days with them, we believe that a few days of unconditional love and acceptance can plant seeds that may just last a lifetime.
