Royal Family Kids Des Moines


This week long sleepover camp is FREE and is funded completely through charitable donations and fundraising!

We serve children from difficult backgrounds who are currently in the foster care system or have been in the foster care system previously. Camp volunteers receive extensive training in working with children who have backgrounds of abuse and neglect.
Each camp counselor is assigned only two children, and a camper is always within eyesight of at least two adults. All camp volunteers understand the special needs of the children we serve.
The age range is 6 to 12.
CAMPERS ARE ROYALTY! During camp week, each camper can expect to be treated like a king or a queen. The children have many activity options, including frequent swimming, various sports, fishing, crafts, a Royal tea party, and various evening activities, which includes getting to show their talents in the annual talent show, and a birthday party for all campers. The camp location is in the north central part of Iowa. The exact camp site is not disclosed for safety reasons. Camp volunteers have been background checked. Most of our campers are clients of the Polk County branch of the Iowa Department of Human Services. We have been working with Iowa DHS since our first camp in 1999.
We have many returnee campers and returnee volunteers! Royal Family Kids’ Camp is an amazing experience for both the kids and those who serve the camp.
Do you have that one moment from your childhood when you realized that someone genuinely cared for you? Maybe it was one-on-one time with one of your parents, a big gift you never expected, or something so small it wouldn’t seem like a big deal to anyone else but it radically changed your life forever. If that’s you, you understand the importance of one moment. At Royal Family KIDS, we do our best to design a whole week just for moments like that. And in the case of the kids we serve, those self esteem building and genuine moments that they have at camp may be the only affirming moments that they have had in their lifetime.
We are excited about the possibility of working with you! Once you’ve turned in your completed application, you will be called for an interview with our leadership team, you will also need to pass a national background check before you can even be considered for service. In every aspect of camp, we aim for the highest level of care and safety, for our campers and staff personnel is at the forefront of our priority.
