Royal Family KIDS Camp is a five-day, four-night camp designed for children ages 7-11, who have suffered family-induced trauma, abuse, neglect, abandonment, or are in out-of-home care.
Royal Family KIDS Camp—Hartland, Chapter #284, started in 2013 by Scott and Julie Holzli. It is sponsored locally by Oakwood Church in Hartland. It is staffed by volunteers who are screened and trained to work with kids at risk. The cost of camp is covered by businesses and individuals who care about children. This is a program created under For The Children.
At camp, every child is paired with another camper, and carefully matched with an adult counselor. A strict rule of 2 adults always in eyesight, ensures each child is in safe hands.
The encouraging attention of caring adults, positive family role modeling, building friendships with other children like them, and the beauty of playing in the great outdoors, all result in a host of wholesome, positive memories and enhanced self-esteem.
