Confronting Abuse and Changing Lives in South Dallas, TX!
We are privileged to serve south Dallas and Ellis counties by providing a camp experience every summer for children who have been affected by abuse and neglect.
Annually, 3.6 million cases of child abuse, neglect or abandonment are reported in America. One of these victims dies every six hours due to that abuse. But you can make a difference — through your support of Royal Family KIDS.
South Dallas Royal Family KIDS is a non-profit organization sponsored locally by Trinity Church of Cedar Hill, TX and Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, TX.
Donations and gifts are tax-deductible, as allowed by law.
South Dallas Royal Family KIDS Camp has had camp every summer since 2011.
Dr. Paula Manley is our camp director. She is a professor teacher education and has served in education for over 20 years. She works alongside an army of volunteers who each bring their own passion for serving our Royal Family KIDS, including Pastor Matt McKay, children’s pastor at Trinity Church and Dr. Darren Daugherty, our founding camp director and a professor of children and family ministries.
Our volunteers love serving at this camp! Many counselors and support staff have been a part of South Dallas RFK since our very first year in 2011. College students, moms and dads, retired couples – all types of people find joy in serving these precious children of Central Texas.
Royal Family KIDS Camp has a camper-to-counselor ratio of 2:1 with at least 50 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.
