Send a child to camp

Join our Family

People power the work of The Starfish Alliance, and it takes lots of people to make camps and clubs work!

Volunteer

Volunteers are not required to be church members (of the sponsoring church) but for reasons of accountability, the lead volunteer directors must be members of the sponsoring church and accountable to the sponsoring pastoral team and The Starfish Alliance.

Build Awareness

Begin by building awareness with your church. Children of abuse, abandonment and neglect live in your neighbourhoods, go to school in your city and they need you to show them the love of God. Learn the facts on foster children in your council. Understanding the need will lead your church family to action. For more information about foster children in your area or for materials to help build awareness, click here.

Launch a Camp

It all starts with CAMP – a place where God will meet the children who live in foster care and give them HOPE. A place where they don’t have to be afraid. A place where they can just be kids and step away from the chaos of their lives.

Launching a camp unites your church family with a purpose; expands your church into the community; and brings the church and local council together for a noble cause.

If you are a church or in a partnership of churches, you can start a Starfish KIDS Camp to make a difference in the lives of looked-after children in your area. A team of 3-5 people selected by the lead church leadership would attend an intense week-long Director’s Training Camp. Once completed, your church will have one year to fundraise, recruit volunteers and launch your own local camp. Each camp operates much like a “franchise” of the original model and is accountable to the lead church’s leadership, as well as Starfish Alliance and its parent organisation, Royal Family Kids, Inc.

Starfish Faith Statement

The Starfish Alliance is a Christian charity. We are not affiliated with any one denomination or group, and we work across denominational lines. We hold to a basic and principled statement of faith:

We affirm faith in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the trustworthiness and authority of the Bible and the value and dignity of all people as well as our human alienation from God by sin and our need for salvation and grace through Christ.

To volunteer for the camps & mentoring clubs, it requires:
