Royal Family KIDS Camp Roles
There are many ways you can get involved in your local Royal Family KIDS Camp. Below you will find explanations of how you can serve the kids in this area.
The 2024 camp dates are July 14-19. Please join us in making moments matter! Are you a returning volunteer? Reapply here.
The primary role of a counselor is to care and cheer for their campers as they walk alongside them through the daily activities of camp. This role requires energy, patience, love, and a willingness to look beyond your own needs in order to wholeheartedly serve the children in your care.
The staff is there to support whatever needs to happen during the week of camp. They also step in to allow the counselors to get daily breaks. This position requires that you are flexible and take initiative to step in when needed. Specialized staff roles include nurse, professional counselor or social worker, and photographer. If you have certification to help in these areas, let us know.
Grandma & Grandpa
(Or aunt & uncle) Our children need lots of love and attention. Who better than extended family to share this kind of safe attention? Our grandparents and aunts and uncles read stories, help with snacks, sort & deliver camp mail, and cheer campers on during activities.
Teen Counselor Assistant
We call them cousins, and they spend time with counselors and their campers, assisting with activities, and also building relationships with the campers. They also participate in a drama that the kids just love! The skits go along with the theme of the camp and relate well to the children we serve.
This is an at-home role, assisting with registering the kids the day they leave for camp. This includes welcoming children & foster parents, packing luggage on the bus, and helping the kids get their t-shirts and name tags. If you want to help but cannot get away for the week, this is a great option!
Several of our camp events require extra help: A tea party for the girls, an honor ceremony for the boys, and a big birthday party for all of the campers. You can help with these events, visiting the campground for a day or more, depending on your availability. Campers also need help with fishing and at our craft centers.
Carry the flag with us.
