Royal Family KIDS Camp Colorado Springs will take place Monday – Friday, June 5-9, 2017.

We are FULL with 72 campers, but with the ever-changing nature of foster care, there may be children that drop out. We will then put a child on the waitlist into his or her spot. We’ve already had four kids drop and added four from the waitlist, so you just never know!
Camp applications for 2017 are still being accepted. Please email our Child Placement Coordinator, Courtney Ferguson, at CourtneyFerguson@ElPasoCO.com for more information. 

We do NOT post the application online because of privacy issues for the kids and keeping the location and identity of camp safe from public knowledge.
………………………………………………………………………….
We will be taking children according to the following priorities:
  1. Returning Royal Family KIDS Colorado Springs campers.
  2. Children currently in foster care.
  3. Siblings of returning campers who are already adopted will not be given priority.
  4. We are not accepting applications for NEW RFK Colorado Springs campers who have already been adopted. However, if your child is a returning RFKC Colorado Springs camper and has been adopted, they are still eligible to apply.

FOR ACCEPTED RFK Colorado Springs Little Campers // 2017

** REGISTRATION **

Registration starts on Monday, June 5, at 8:00 am. You should have already received several emails and a phone call from your child’s Big Camper about this. You also received an acceptance letter in the mail in a purple envelope!
………………………………………………………………………….

** PICK-UP **

Pick-up is a bit different this year. Kids will arrive back from camp at 3:00 pm and then sing/perform 2-3 songs they learned at camp! We’ll meet you back in the same spot where you dropped your kids off – please be prepared to line up in the hallway again – and we’ll check off your government-issued ID to allow you to pick up your child, their medications, their luggage, and all artwork from camp! That will be around 3:30 and end at 4 pm. Please be prompt and attend our little performance that starts at 3:15 sharp.
