Carnival Themed Royal Family Kids Camp Set for July
June 3, 2020
“Royal Family Kids” is an international Christian organization that offers various programs, free of charge, for foster kids. Their website, RoyalFamilyKids.org, states in part: “Royal Family Kids. Changing lives. Transforming Communities. We intervene in the lives of children in the foster care system through camps and mentoring programs in order to improve life outcomes and to transform communities. One of our most effective interventions is a 5-day summer camp. Camp is where many kids get to be kids—often for the first time in their young lives.”
At camp kids get to be involved in all kinds of fun activities. Biblical teaching is done in very creative, hands on ways.
Three Chinook ladies, Nellie Jo Nicholson, Liz Lybeck and Betty Billmayer, will be attending a Royal Family Kids camp in July to help with an afternoon and evening event. Plans are underway for a carnival type set up with games and prizes, followed by personalized birthday cakes and gifts for each child. Kids come away with many gifts and items of memorabilia from the week. Gifts are used as reminders that they are loved, by God and by the many volunteers it takes to make the camp happen.
Each camper is given a blanket to take home and the local quilt guild has already donated ten blankets. Individuals and organizations can get involved with preparations for the games and gifts, by giving financially and/or helping with a work day set for Friday June 19th at 9AM at the Alliance Church. To find out more about helping, contact Nellie Jo at 357-3174, Liz at 390-0354, Betty at 357-4100 or Shannon Van Voast in Turner at 379-2243.
