  3. 3. Why Royal Family Kids Camp <ul><li>Last summer I spent a week volunteering at this camp as a counselor for a little girl. This camp is for abused and neglected children, and it is very hard to see them arrive and have so much pain in their eyes. At first my girl didn’t want anything to do with me, she didn’t trust anyone, but in the end she learned to trust me. This is one of the most emotional, yet experiences I have ever had in my life. </li></ul>

Inputs and Outputs <ul><li>8,470 volunteers to support the children </li></ul><ul><li>Ambassadors to make RFKC known and explicate the meaning of the camp </li></ul><ul><li>The ambassadors also raise their own funds </li></ul><ul><li>Number of campers is over 6,711 </li></ul><ul><li>Number of volunteers 8,470 </li></ul><ul><li>Average amount of money raised per camp $28,891 </li></ul>

  6. 6. The Outcomes <ul><li>Children who have been hurt physically and emotionally learn that it is not their fault </li></ul><ul><li>They see that they can be loved </li></ul>
  7. 7. A Nice Story… <ul><li>A little boy who had went to camp a year before was very angry and didn’t want anything to do with his foster parents. His foster parents were going to give him up after camp, because he was too much to handle, but they had seen such a huge difference after camp that they ended up adopting him. </li></ul><ul><li>This year when this little boy came back he was such a help to another little boy who was having anger issues, and he just sat with him and engaged in a discourse . </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Community in need <ul><li>Each year, over 3 million American children are reported as abused, physically attacked, emotionally damaged, sexually molested, or neglected, often by the people they have loved and trusted most </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Community in need cont.. Children who are being abused and/or neglected can end up dead! Most children question “ Am I loved?”, all children should feel loved and that’s what royal family kids camp does. Children are very vulnerable, and need a safe place. Children are hurt way too often, and they are our future and deserve much better.

  15. 15. All Children are Prince’s and Princesses <ul><li>Most of these children don’t understand anything else, but hate and anger. They don’t even think that they can be loved. Royal Family Kid’s Camp changes that! </li></ul>
  16. 16. A special note… <ul><li>Dear Friend, </li></ul><ul><li>They come to us broken. Battered. Bruised. Often, the outward abuse while substantial cannot touch the damage to their shattered hearts and spirits. It is for these abused, abandoned and neglected children of the world that Royal Family Kids Camps exists.It is our goal to make a lasting difference in the young lives of children, ages 7-11, by giving them a week filled with fun, love, attention and care. </li></ul>
