NEXT CAMP: July 30 – AUGUST 4, 2017

[ NOTE: Staff must arrive on Sunday, July 30, 2017 ]

 

Royal Family KIDS Camp of Franklin County was founded in 2002 to enrich the lives of Franklin County’s abused and neglected children, ages 6 to 12. The organization is distinctive in that it serves these children through a summer Camp and continual long-term mentorship throughout the school year.

RFK of Franklin County is a key partner with Franklin County Children Services. FCCS continually recognizes RFK’s value through awards such as the Executive Director’s Award for Voluntary Service and the Community Advocate Award.

Our campers often have emotional and behavioral disorders. We have a team of registered nurses,  professional social workers and/or licensed counselors, and many RFK camp volunteers.  The camp staff:

  • Serve no more than two children.
  • Undergo background checks.
  • Receive twelve hours of targeted training.

The children engage in numerous activities and events: swimming, sports, a variety show, a carnival, a birthday party and presents, making birdhouses, shopping in the free clothing store, hiking, painting, and periodic presentations from local community talent.

Royal Family KIDS Club of Franklin County facilitates long-term, year-round support from caring adults. Children experience one-to-one mentoring for four hours each month, as well as monthly Club meetings. For children who have been repeatedly abused or abandoned by adults, the need for this type of permanency and support is especially great. Mentors undergo additional training. Research tells us that mentoring improves a child’s relationship with others, improves a child’s self worth, and academic achievement.

We believe Franklin County’s foster children have a bright future.  Join us to help reverse the effects of abuse and neglect. There’s a place for everyone, whether you have a little time, a full week for Camp or a few hours a month for Club or Mentoring.  For those that cannot physically assist with Camp, Club or Mentoring, financial donations are happily accepted.
