Royal Family Kids Camp
RFKC seeks to “create life changing moments for children of abuse,” to a handful of the over 400,000 children in foster care nationwide through a week-long summer camp.
Camp Confidence

A camp for teens, age 12-17, who have aged out of Royal Family Kids Camp.  Two camps are offered each summer: one for girls and one for boys.


After children and adults spend a week at RFKC, many want to keep in touch.  By mentoring a student, adults can continue meeting with and building up the children.

The Genies support local foster parents with childcare, meals, shopping, laundry or whatever the parents need.

Royal Family Kids Camp, Camp Confidence, Mentoring and Genies are all considered part of the Fostering the Future ministry, covering all SUMC’s foster ministries.
