This month CCCA presents Jeff Juhala

What It Takes to Be a Royal Family KIDS Camp Facility

Are you passionate about supporting kids in the foster care system? Learn more about the impact of camp in the lives of children living in the foster care system and what is required of facilities that host their week-long camps. If you have considered opening up your camp to this important community, find out what makes a camp property a great fit and how you can start the conversation with Royal Family KIDS to be an approved location.
