We started out in 2003 as Royal Family Kids’ Camp Monterey Bay, and after serving the community for 10 years we have officially become Royal Family Kids’ Camp Santa Cruz!
We are excited to continue providing camp for abused, neglected, and abandoned foster kids from the Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay Counties of California.
Every year, we put on a one week camp in the summer for kids, ages 7 to 11, who are in the Santa Cruz or Monterey Bay foster care system.
Local volunteers, with a heart for hurting children, work to make this camp a thoroughly uplifting springboard to enable foster kids to rise above their current situation and have hope for tomorrow.
At the beginning of their summer vacation the children are warmly welcomed to a place where they are treated with love and respect and also well fed in body, mind, and spirit.
Swimming, hiking, arts and crafts, drama, music, tea parties, and camp fires are all part of this camp experience.
Wednesday at camp is “Everybody’s Birthday Party” where each child is given a birthday box, and they can enjoy a birthday party filled with games, bounce houses, and cake!
But most importantly, they learn about God’s unconditional love and seeds are planted for healing to take place.
