Testimonies of RFK
Social Worker Testimony:
“I have worked with kids that have gotten to go year after year and they can’t wait until the next summer camp. It is amazing to see the transformation that can happen in one short week. I have foster kids that will get out their memory book and show the pictures of camp over and over and tell stories.”
–Shelli Graves, Foster Care Specialist
Foster Parent Testimony:
“We just love the first hour after the children return. They have so much to say and so much to show us. The love and role modeling you present overwhelms us. We cannot begin to express our heartfelt thanks. Please believe us when we say this camp is one of the highlights of the children’s lives. They are so lucky to experience such fun and love.”
