A Message From Wayne

People often ask me, “What is most rewarding about Royal Family KIDS?” I tell them, “After the campers, it’s the adult volunteers (ages 18-90) who are committed to sharing compassion and wisdom with our children.” Our incredible adult volunteers help to create the healing community for the children we serve as they model Deuteronomy 6:4-9:4

“Hear, O Israel! (RFK Community) The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children (Campers) and shall talk of them when you sit in your house (Cabin) and when you walk (Hike) by the way and when you lie down (30-30 time) and when you rise up (Polar Bear Swim). 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand (Values Wrist Bands) and they shall be as frontals on your forehead (Memory Book Photo Album). 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house (Cabin) and on your gates.”

This is the “Community” creating memories that last a lifetime. Adults are key to the process, so I want to say, “Thank you to all the adults who serve for the children.”
