About Our Mentoring Club

For every Royal Family KIDS camp volunteer, the last day at camp is usually the hardest. You’ve forged wonderful relationships with children recovering from abuse and neglect. Your campers have taken important steps towards trust and healing. You have given them the gift of 5 days packed with positive memories. Then you must say goodbye until next year. Thousands of Camp volunteers ask, “Can’t we do more?” Royal Family Kids Club is a multi- state program designed specifically to answer ‘YES!’ to that question!

MENTORS Special bonds are established during the week of Royal Family Kids Camp. After camp is finished that bond is carried over into a one on one mentoring relationship through our Clubs and Mentors Program. Participating campers are matched with trained mentors from the Royal Family KIDS Camp team. Mentors and their mentees spend four hours together each month with an additional two hours at club. CLUBS Mentors and their Club Kids meet monthly during the school year for celebrations, meetings and field trips. Club Kids enjoy the same songs, games and friends they remember from camp.

I am part of Mentoring Club because it is great to see the kids from camp during the school year at Club, which is basically an extension of Camp, where the kids are safe, have fun, and most importantly have positive adult role models showering them with love and acceptance!

“Roughly 55% of foster children in the US have had three or more placements. 33% of foster children change elementary schools five or more times, losing relationships and falling behind educationally.” (Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute) Therefore, having a consistent mentor is VITAL. Studies show that a year of regular mentoring by a trusted adult can help a child in every area–socially, academically and emotionally.
