The gospel is at the heart of renewal in our city, and Scripture is definitive about God’s abundant love for the orphan. Many in our city work diligently and selflessly to provide love, care, and support for the image-bearers who are part of the foster care system in Los Angeles. One way our church has joined in God’s work is through Royal Family KIDS Camp (RFKC), an annual summer camp we host with the mission to share the joy and love of Jesus with children and caretakers who are or have been involved in the foster care system. The camp is tied to our yearlong mentorship program centered on cultivating healthy, encouraging, and positive relationships between our volunteers and campers throughout the year.
RFKC is a week-long overnight camp for campers aged 6-12. So long as it is safe and healthy to do so, this year’s camp will take place Sunday, June 19, through Friday, June 24. The week of RFKC includes zip lines, nerf battles, skits, incredible music, pool time, fresh baked cookies and stories with “Grandma and Grandpa”, tea parties, chapel time, meal times with songs busting forth out of nowhere, a talent show, and so much more.
If this sounds like a big endeavor…it is. We need our church to participate in big ways for this to happen. Here are some ways you can get involved:
Please consider supporting the kids and the camp financially. RFKC is completely self-funded so that no child has to pay dime to be there. Whether giving $5 or paying for 5 kids to go to camp, everything helps. If you’d like to make a donation, you can do so here through Pushpay or through their app (simply select “Royal Family Kids Camp (RFKC) – 2022” from the reference field).
We will update this page with specific prayer points as camp approaches. For now, if you think there’s something we could use prayer for, you’re probably right—so pray for it!
