About Our Camp & Club

WELCOME to the beautiful world of Royal Family KIDS!!!

Our faith-based mission is to positively impact the lives of children in Santa Barbara County, ages 6-12, who have been victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment by providing life-changing experiences and creating positive memories. We accomplish this through a week long residential camp and our year-long club and mentoring program.

Royal Family Kids of Santa Barbara was founded in 2001. Through partnership with local churches, and generous donations from area businesses and individuals with a heart for these children, we are able to provide this week of “Royal Treatment” at no cost to the camper or their families/caregivers.

While at camp, children participate in activities that are purposefully designed to be fun, non-competitive and non-threatening. Our camper to counselor ratio is 2:1 and at least 40 additional staff add to the fun! God’s love is modeled consistently through our trained staff which also includes Camp Aunts and Uncles, and Camp Grandparents…you could say it’s a big “family”! Each camper is sure to feel supported as they enjoy games, sports, swimming, activity centers, Bible stories, woodworking, archery, drama, and the crowd favorite–“Everybody’s Birthday Party”!

What We Believe

We believe every child is valuable and should have positive experiences and memories to thrive in life.

We believe healthy interaction between adults and children has the power to change the trajectory of lives.

We believe the best antidote to adverse childhood experiences is strong positive childhood experiences that will build a healthy self-image and resilience for the future – their future CAN be better!

We believe impacting the lives of children in foster care now will also directly impact the quality of life in our community and future generations.

How We Impact Lives

We provide life-changing moments by hosting an unforgettable camp experience in the summer for children in foster care that is at no cost for their caregivers.

Camp activities include a huge birthday party, daily swimming and activity centers, archery, a rockwall, and many various arts and crafts activities!

We also provide a monthly club and weekly mentorship program.

This allows our campers to be paired up with a staff member from camp to further develop the positive influence in their life throughout the school year. Campers and their mentors gather together monthly for Club where they have the opportunity to participate in camp-like activities and reconnect with their Royal Family.
