Our Needs

Each year, we supply our campers with all of their basic needs so that they can focus on their camp experience.

How can you help?

Purchase Camp Needs

Sponsor Camp – $40,000

There is much that goes into a week of Royal Family KIDS Camp: The cost of the campgrounds per camp staff and camper; the required materials for campers from RFK corporate offices; training materials and food costs for our mandated training weekend for all camp staff; bus service to and from NorthRidge Church to our campground location for our campers; birthday party festivities, materials, and birthday bags for each camper; background checks on all camp staff; farewell carnival before check-out; and the Welcome Back dinner for all camp staff as a thank you and celebration of a great week at camp.

Sponsor Mentoring Club – $5,000

Help our successful camp grow into a Camp/Club/Mentors location. It’s one of the best investments possible in the life of a child. We can help you grow a current Camp program into a year-round community that provides a child with the only adults who are not paid to be in his or her life.

Sponsor Birthday Party – $3,000

Many of our campers have never celebrated their birthday, and we celebrate each camper from the moment they get off the bus on Monday, and leave us on Friday! We often will have inflatables or some other large entertainment company come out to camp, along with a big pizza party with cupcakes, and birthday bag surprises waiting for the kids back in their cabins.

Sponsor 1 Year of Mentoring & Camp for a Child – $1,000

Help take care of a child all year long by sponsoring both camp and mentoring for the year.

Training Scholarship – $900

Often, we have dedicated volunteers who would love to come to training but cannot afford the travel to attend the nearest training sessions. You can help someone who has the passion and dedication (if not the funds) take the next step in becoming a hero to children of abuse and neglect.

Sponsor Woodworking – $325

Each camper gets to make a woodworking project while at camp. This covers the cost of purchasing all the materials needed for our 48 campers.

Sponsor a Camper – $300

Help us send a camper to camp. This helps cover the cost of the campground usage for the week of camp for one camper.

Sponsor Fishing – $125

Our campers love fishing, but don’t always know how to handle the fishing poles. We often have to replace the poles each year, along with all the tackle and other fishing gear needed for the campers to enjoy their fishing experience.

Buy a Cabin Bin – $75

The plastic totes filled with all the items needed for each cabin is crucial to our camp’s success. Toiletries, books, bed sheets, etc. are the necessary items we provide to make the kids feel at home while they are away.

Buy a Memory Bag – $50

Our campers are sent home with a picture book filled with all the happy memories from their week at camp, along with another t-shirt, and an MP3 player with all the camp songs. The kids cherish these items!

Buy a Birthday Bag – $35

These birthday bags are waiting for each camper in their cabins at the end of our birthday party day at camp. Each child receives two items (that won’t break in two seconds).

Buy a Shirt for a camper – $15

Each camper receives a themed camp shirt when they arrive at camp to help everyone feel that they belong.

Ongoing Expense Needs

Storage Space – $2000 / year

We do not own a campground, but rent one each year.  Because of this, we have storage needs for all camp equipment each year.  We are seeking a donated storage facility in SE Michigan with easy access year-round that has approximately 20′ x 20′ space or more.

Rental Truck – $500 / year

Each year, we need a 20′ or larger box truck to take our camp supplies to the campground and bring them back at the end of the week. The truck is only needed for a few hours on Sunday &, Thursday night through Friday afternoon.
