Event to give foster children a camp to remember

March 24, 2017 · 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Royal Family KIDS Camp will feature its annual Night to Remember fundraiser March 24 from 7-8:30 p.m. at Community Covenant.

Night to Remember will be free, will be open to the entire community and will include a dessert gala; a live auction of items such as hand-turned wood bowls and sage fly fishing rods; the camp’s history; stories of children in foster care; and special guest Dr. John DeGarmo of the Foster Care Institute.

According to drjohndegarmofostercare.weebly.com, DeGarmo is a leading international foster care expert and consultant who’s toured around the world as part of international supergroup Up with People, served as a DJ at four radio stations on two continents, worked in the professional wrestling industry, taught high school English and drama, worked as a media specialist and founded Never Too Late, a residential group home for boys in foster care.

Proceeds from Night to Remember will benefit the Anchorage Royal Family KIDS Camp, which will be offered in June for children ages 6-11, said Chris Scott of Eagle River, who volunteers annually as the camp’s director.

“They all come from or have been in foster care,” Chris said of the children who’ll be attending this year’s jungle-themed camp. “Some may have returned to their biological parents, but this is a respite time for their ‘bio’ parents.”

According to Chris, about 64 children attend the Anchorage camp for free annually, which costs $500 per child and a total of $64,000 per week to operate.

Camp operations are done in large part by volunteers, Chris said, and RFKC is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to provide what may be a life-changing experience for campers.

“You can change the trajectory of a child’s life,” Chris said, adding the camp provides a safe and healthy environment for foster children. “I think Royal Family KIDS Camp is the epitome of hope, healing and wholeness.”

The Anchorage Royal Family KIDS Camp is entering into its 13th year, but has only recently come under the covering of Community Covenant Church in Eagle River.

“There are many wonderful opportunities available to serve the local community. In considering all of them, one of the questions we could ask is ‘What reflects the heart of God?’”  said Lead Pastor Todd Michero. “Royal Family KIDS Camp touches lives that could easily be forgotten, overlooked or marginalized.”

No advance signups are required to attend Night to Remember, Scott said, and interested volunteers who are 16 and older are also encouraged to participate in the event to learn how they can support the camp as counselors, kitchen staff, prayer warriors, activity center helpers, camp crew members, registration staff and lakeside lifeguards.
