DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) - Saturday night people gathered for a preview of the movie "Camp." It wasn't a Hollywood premiere. It took place at the First Assembly of God Church in Delphi.
Those watching it included representatives from the Department of Child Services and other supporters of the Royal Family Kids Camp.
"We go out to just have fun with the children," Director of the Royal Family Kids Camp Mike Roberts said. "We show them a different side of what they've seen in their lives."
The nationwide camp caters to foster children. A local division in Delphi hosts kids from surrounding counties including Cass, Tippecanoe, Benton, Clinton and Montgomery.
Roberts and his wife Rachel, also a camp director, said it costs about $30,000 to put on the week-long camp and the mentoring program which follows.
To help raise funds this year the movie "Camp" was made.
"Forty percent of the proceeds will go directly to our camp," Rachel said.
"Camp" is a film based on stories of the campers of Royal Family Kids Camp. They are stories the Roberts call inspirational.
"Our kids come with many hurts, and many wounds in their hearts," Rachel said. "We know in one week we can't heal them, but we can just allow them to be kids again."
"They come hard, and they come tough," Mike said about the campers. "Once they can drop that it's just really cool to see it."
The movie opens March 15. The exact theater has not been named. Go to the movie's website to watch a preview and find out how you can help promote it.
