RFKC: Royal Family Kids Camp is a camp for abused children. Through out the US, these camps are put on my many different churches. It is all voluntary. These kids go through some awful stuff, and they get a week at one of these camps, able to leave theirs fears, distrust, etc behind.And I could go on and on.

But, anyway this years theme is royalty, medieval times, castles, princes, princesses, palaces, knight, etc. So, whatever the theme is, these camps are decorated along that line. We will have 40 children—20 boys and 20 girls. 10 cabins, 5 boy cabins and 5 girl cabins. Anyway, we thought each cabin should have a coat of arms.

So, my girlfriend and I have been working on these, a total of eleven. I used quarter inch plywood, then painted in the four sections, and my girl friend did all the mod podging.

Looks good. Nice of you to volunteer. My wife puts in a gillion hours for Campfire every summer including 2 full weeks at camp every day.

Very creative and thoughtful! My daughter volunteered as a nurse/counselor at a similar camp. My complements for your coats of arms and your volunteering at the camp. Thanks!
I went back for a second look and appreciate the symbols on the COA’s.

Well done. My wife and I have adopted 2 children and I have a ton of respect anyone who helps out kids. Good job!
