Royal Family KIDS: Renae Houseweart

Renae's Bio

I am a nurse and a Colorado Native, love to mountain bike both cross-country and downhill, hike, ski, camp, scrapbook and hang out with my boyfriend and my nieces- who think that Aunt Nae Nae rocks.

I am so excited to be a part of the Royal Family KIDS team. As a nurse I have had the opportunity to join other medical missions in Mexico and Africa, but have never done a mission so near to home. When my friend and colleague Kel Muckleroy approached me about Royal Family and explained the need for a camp nurse for foster kids, I felt so may things. I felt excited that he thought I had the skills and compassion, doubt that I knew enough out side of my current practice, fear I couldn’t get the time off of work and in the the end relief that if God wanted this, it would all work out… so here I am.

I know this will be a very rewarding experience and I hope I can give to these children all the love and compassion that they deserve. Thank you for your contribution to help a foster kid be able to join in such a rewarding experience. 

Team Description

Royal Family KIDS in Parker, Colorado is a one week, residential camp for children in the foster system within the Denver Metro area.  For one week this summer a group of wonderful campers, ages 6-12, and trained, background checked, loving volunteers from Southeast Christian Church will head to camp with the goal of treating our campers ROYALLY!   Royal Family provides a safe, nurturing, FUN, life-changing experience free of charge to God’s precious kids in the foster care system in Douglas, Arapahoe and Jefferson counties.  We will have the opportunity to demonstrate the love of God through singing, dancing, laughing, playing games, Bible stories, drama, puppet shows, swimming, creating crafts, and developing healthy relationships with safe adults.

Partner Description

Royal Family KIDS is the nation's leading network of camps, clubs and mentors for children of abuse, neglect and abandonment. Most of us have experienced an encouraging word or kind gesture when we were at our deepest low, and we know how life changing it was.

Since 1985, Royal Family KIDS has lifted children from the deepest pits of despair and given them hope that they can take one more step toward a better tomorrow and a brighter future.
