Royal Family Kids?
Wayne Tesch (the Founder of Royal Family Kids Camp) was in town and spoke at Southwest Community Church and shared all the great things RFK is doing across the country.
We launched Club which is designed to extend the experience of Camp for 11 kids and we had a successful Teen Retreat in March with 23 campers.
Because of your donations last year, we were able to send 55 kids to camp as well as begin our Club & Mentoring program. We had our 3rd year of Teen Retreat & celebrated Christmas with the Kids.
Teen RETREAT was a Success!
At first I was a little hesitant because of severe weather conditions we usually experience, but the weather was wonderful! It wasn’t freezing, but we still had snow to enjoy – and we stayed away from the lemon snow! I was very pleased with the great turnout! Thank you to all the
volunteers, who come out and spend time with amazing kids.
We enjoyed fun activities all weekend: snow tubing, snow shoeing, and broom-ball. Tubing down the hill was my favorite and quite the workout. Even though we had a busy schedule, we made time for board games and time to talk to each other. Sometimes we are so busy that we don’t take time to listen to one another. We were able to share stories and chat with one another. It was awesome getting to know others better
The winter retreat is just beginning for the plans we have for our graduates. Being a teen is a difficult time especially in this day and age. We are hoping to continue to see our graduates shape into responsible citizens. We are working on creating a mentoring program that will help develop a growing relationship.
More details coming soon, keep an eye on your mail!
If you can’t wait, then come join our youth group!
We invite our teens (6th- 12th grades) to come join our youth group on Sundays 3:00-4:30 pm at Southwest Community Church Barn located at 4405 Van Dyke, Rd, Minooka, IL.
What is Club : By Lidia Salgado
Many people have been asking me “What’s Club?”
What isn’t it?
It’s a breakfast club!
It’s let's get ice cream and talk club!
It’s praising and worshiping club!
Club and mentoring are the perfect combination to get your monthly dose of RFKC! Camp volunteers are matched to one of our campers, who they are committing to mentor every month. Mentoring is a minimum of four hours a month and then you both join us at our monthly club meeting. It is just simple as that!
If you are interested in being a positive role model for a special person, come talk to Suzanne or myself! We always have room for one more!
Checks can be made payable to RFK, please designate your check for the Birthday Bag in the comments section.
