OUR STORYWhat we are all about!
We are a faith-based non-profit organization recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) that provides free week-long camps (through Royal Family Kid’s Camps for ages 6-11), mentoring clubs (ages 6-11) and weekend retreats through Onward & Upward (ages 12-15) and through SUMMIT (ages 16-18) to children of abuse and neglect.
The camps/retreats are staffed by volunteers that go through an interview and screening process and training that is specifically designed to understand the needs and behaviors of abused and neglected children. Our camps/retreats offer a 2:1 camper-to-counselor ratio with the exception of The SUMMIT retreats which will have a 1:1 camper-to-counselor ratio. A mentoring program with calls and follow-up visits is an added feature to the retreats.
We team with local community groups, churches and organizations as well as Child Protective Services and other child agencies/groups.
MISSION: Our mission is to create positive, uplifting memories for children of abuse and neglect, ages 6-18, in camp settings, weekend retreats, and in mentoring clubs with age-appropriate curriculum.
VISION: Our vision is to build self-confidence and self-esteem through various activities and establish a mentoring program built on trust and two-way communication.

Our Father's Children exists to reach out to children of abuse and neglect in North Texas. We accomplish this mission through camps for young kids, retreats for middle school and high school students, and mentoring for teenagers. We recruit volunteers from a variety of cities, churches and organizations who have a heart for offering these kids hope in Jesus Christ. Whether as a volunteer or donor (or both), we would love to have you join us in giving hope to these kids!
