First and foremost we are so excited that God may be calling you to be a part of this year's Royal Family Kids Mission Team. During the application process, we encourage you to continually seek God's will for you concerning your role at camp. We would also covet your prayers for all of the volunteers, the children attending, the leadership team and sufficient resources to accomplish our mission.
This is a camp for abused and neglected kids between the ages of 7-11 that are or have been in the foster care system. We have capacity for up to 100 kids which is limited by the number of volunteers. We often have kids on a waiting list, so the more volunteers we have the more kids we can take. If you know of others that would be interested in volunteering, please share our information.
Please review the following information before proceeding:
Cost: We are a self-funded ministry. Each volunteer is asked to fundraise $750 which covers the cost for one child to attend camp and our after-camp mentorin program. Consistent with other church missions, we are asking all volunteers to take responsibility for raising personal support in this amount by sending support letters and other creative ideas that you come up with. The Leadership Team will help you in the process, track your progress and provide you with an easy to set-up personal fundraising website. A $50 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of the first training session.
Camp Roles: The camp roles consist of, but are not not limited to, two main areas of ministry:
Camp Counselor (biggest need) - responsible for 1-2 kids during the week
Camp Support Staff – responsible for managing or being a part of a camp activity such as the drama team, art station, woodworking station, sports field, life guard, logistics and more.
