Royal Banquet

Royal Banquet Website

The Royal Banquet is the main fundraiser for Royal Family Kids Camp Tampa Bay.  Our goal in 2018 is to provide a free week of camp for over 60 kids that come from foster care, group homes and kinship care.  The cost to run this overnight camp for a week is $50,000, and we need your support to help us provide this amazing week for the kids. The volunteer staff thanks you for your support! 




It’s Not Over!

We hope you and your family had a great Christmas!  Throughout this holiday season, we asked you to Give the Gift of Camp to a Foster Kid.  Our goal is to send 64 kids to camp.  Kids like Julie who has bounced around to 6 different foster homes in the last 2 years.  Your donation gives the gift of hope.  Hope for a week where she is shown unconditional love and is treated like Royalty.

It is not too late to Give the Gift of Camp to a Foster Kid.  As you are considering your year end giving, please keep kids like Julie in mind.  When you give, your name will be added to an ornament on our tree.  This tree will be displayed at our camp in July.


Thank you for your support and Happy New Year!

This Christmas, Give the Gift of Camp (update)

Matt Oleson Portrait_FotorClick on Matthew’s picture to watch our latest update.  Matthew and his wife Kacy have been foster parents for several years.  They have seen how difficult it can be for kids in the foster care system.  Many of these kids are moved from house to house which causes even more trauma for them.  At Royal Family Kids Camp, we give kids the gift of hope.  So many of our campers that went to our camp last year said it was the best time they have ever had.

A huge reason our camp can exist is due to over 100 volunteers.  All of us at Royal Family Kids Camp are 100% volunteers.  We depend on the generous giving of individuals like you to give these kids a life changing week of camp.  No child pays to attend our camp.

Will you consider donating a day of camp to a child that has experienced abuse, neglect and abandonment?

Visit our This Christmas, Give the Gift of Camp website.  Any donation will be much appreciated and will help send kids to our camp.

The need for Foster Parents is tremendous!

Just to give you an idea, today alone there are 11 children in Hillsborough County waiting for foster placement, and there are zero open spots for them.  West Florida Foster Care Services has made it easy to find out more about what it takes to be a foster family.   They are hosting 7 different orientation information sessions over the next 2 months where you can come in and ask as many questions as you want.   Click on their banner below to check out the times and dates:



Day 5: Last Day


Boys Cabin 1, also known as Warriors for God, spent some time in prayer knowing that it wouldn’t be an easy day at the end.  The week flew by for all of us!  The highlight of the day was when the campers returned to Bay Life.  They sang the songs they learned along with the motions on stage to their caregivers.  We also got a preview of our camp video.  The final version will be out in the next couple of weeks.

Overall, it was a privilege for all of us to serve the campers throughout the week.  We are praying for health and safety for the campers, and we will see them next year!
