Help create positive memories for children in the local foster care system.
For one week of summer, dozens of individuals from Hope Fellowship will head to east Texas for Royal Family Kids Camp. This is a week for us to serve as counselors, teachers and leaders for children who are currently, or have ever been in the foster care system (scroll to the bottom of this page for a detailed list of roles in which you can serve). Many times these kids have been neglected, abused or abandoned. For one week these kids will experience unconditional love and fun!!
If you can’t serve the whole week we also have several one-day serving opportunities available.
Questions? Contact Launa Vaughn, Hope’s Mission Pastor at 972-377-8855 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
