RFK Huron, SD Camp Positions
There are many ways to be involved in James River Royal Family KIDS Camp. One way is to commit to spending the entire week at camp. At Royal Family KIDS Camp, we call our Camp Counselors Guides, because quite honestly, our campers already have plenty of other counselors in their lives. For every Guide willing to spend the entire week at camp, two additional campers are able to attend. Training is mandatory. Guides arrive at camp the day before the campers to prepare the cabins and welcome the campers as they arrive. Each Guide is responsible for 2 campers in order to provide the very best care for our campers. The different areas involved with being on staff include nurse, social worker, life guard, drama, music, wood-shop, archery, activity center, dress-up, sports/outdoor activities and many more. While the guides spend most of their time with their 2 assigned campers, staff members have the opportunity to interact with more of the kids. Training is mandatory. Registration Those assisting with registration do not attend camp but are vital in welcoming our campers to this new experience. They will assist the director and other staff in checking campers in at the local church and loading them onto the bus. Many kids are often nervous and frightened and your smiling face will be the first one they see, before they even drive up to the camp. Birthday Party and Other Special Events One night of the week, we celebrate every child’s birthday with a party in their honor. Past parties have included pony rides, inflated obstacle courses, face painting, balloons, clowns, petting zoo, cookie decorating, slip-and-slide, and fun birthday games. Of course there is always cake, ice cream and even a present just for them! More help is always needed with all these events going on. Birthday party volunteers help to provide prizes, driving up to camp just for the night of the party.
