Royal Family KIDS serves at-risk children in the foster care system in Larimer and Weld Counties and the families who care for them by providing them with unconditional love and acceptance. We focus on two areas:
Royal Family KIDS Camp, a weeklong summer camp for kids ages 7-12.
RFK Timberline Mentoring, a group mentoring program for teens 13-17 who have been to our camp.
Royal Family KIDS was started in 1985 by a California pastor and his wife as a way to provide hope for local foster children. Today, the parent organization is known as For the Children and is a network of camps and programs hosted by church partners and non-profit agencies. There are more than 240 chapters in 44 states in the United States and 12 other countries that serve more than 10,000 children.
Timberline Church has been hosting Royal Family KIDS camps since 2016, serving children recommended by the Larimer and Weld County Departments of Human Services. With their history of trauma and abuse, many of the children in our programs have behavior issues that make it difficult to participate in other programs. We welcome these children with open arms.
More than 100 trained volunteers work tirelessly throughout the year to create moments that matter for these children of God to help them understand how much they are loved.
If you are interested in getting involved with RFK, please contact us. Our next camp will be June 9-14, 2024.
The RFK Timberline Mentoring Program is for teens ages 13-17 who have been to RFK Camp. Each mentee is paired with a mentor and the pairs get together with other mentor/mentee pairs at least once a month to have fun and spend time together. Groups have gone to Rockies games, gone to movies, and simply gone out to lunch to spend quality time together. RFK also hosts group mentoring events for mentors and mentees, such as our fall trip to Fritzler Farm and our winter snow tubing excursion to Beaver Meadows.
We have a waiting list of kids who need mentors. If you are interested in making a difference in the life of one of our RFK kids, please email and Nicole or Kaitlyn will get back with you.
