Hope, help and summer camp fun for foster kids from the Columbus area! Highland Park Church in Columbus, NE has been privileged to sponsor a Royal Family KIDS Camp every summer since 2008. Jonathan and Cristine Niles are our camp directors. They have joyfully served at camp since helping to launch it 11 years ago. Our volunteers love serving at this camp! Counselors and support staff return year after year. College students, moms and dads, retired couples – all types of people find joy in serving these precious children. Royal Family KIDS Camp has a camper-to-counselor ratio of 2:1 with at least 20 additional support staff. Activities are purposefully designed to be non-competitive and non-threatening while allowing children to experience success. God’s love is modeled consistently, through the games, sports, activity centers, Bible stories, drama and quiet times the campers share with their counselors. There are strict policies for behavior of Campers, Counselors and Staff which assure that there is never an opportunity for an unsafe or questionable situation. Additionally, several strict and important measures are taken to ensure the camps are safe for the children. The campsite itself has been especially selected to provide a safe, fun place for the camp experience.
