Info and Applications

We exist to serve children in the foster care system in Rock Island County by treating them to a free, week-long summer camp. Many of these children are not able to attend “regular” summer camps because of their unique requirements – both emotional and physical, and the special needs of these children are met at Royal Family KIDS Camp.

Some highlights of the camp:

  • As stated previously, this camp is FREE and is funded completely through charitable donations and fundraising!
  • Camp volunteers receive extensive training in working with children who have backgrounds of abuse and neglect.  Each camp counselor is assigned only one or two children, and a camper is always within eyesight of at least two adults.  All camp volunteers understand the special needs of the children we serve.
  • The age range is 6 to 12.
  • CAMPERS ARE ROYALTY!  During camp week, each camper can expect to be treated like a king or a queen.  The children have many activity options, including frequent swimming, various sports, fishing, crafts, a royal tea party, and various evening activities, which includes getting to show their talents in the annual talent show, and a birthday party for all campers.
  • Camp volunteers have been background checked.
  • We work with the various social services agencies in the area to connect kids with the camp.

At Royal Family KIDS, we do our best to design a whole week of moments that matter. And in the case of the kids we serve, those self esteem building and genuine moments that they have at camp may be the only affirming moments that they have had in their lifetime.

If you are interested in being a part of our camp, we would love to hear from you! Once you’ve turned in your completed application, you will be called for an interview with our leadership team. Everyone must also pass a national background check before being considered for service. In every aspect of camp, we aim for the highest level of care and safety, for our campers and staff personnel is at the forefront of our priority. The only cost to be a part of camp is a $25 application fee due when application is submitted to help cover the background check expenses.
