NEW NAME!!!

We have changed our name!! It is with great excitement that we announce the official launch (we say official because it has finally been approved by the Charity Commission) of The Starfish Alliance, a not-for-profit and faith-based organisation tasked with carrying the mission of RFK UK on to the next level(s). We extend a warm “Thank You” to our American cousins who have so graciously walked with us in developing Camp #1 in South Wales, and we anticipate a great relationship in the future as we grow to more and more camps across this country.

Taking this step required a change in name for the British context. We have often told the story of the beach littered with washed-up and drying-out starfish, and the boy walking along whilst carefully throwing them back into the water…one by one. A man approached the boy and said, “Surely you see the thousands of starfish on the sand. Your quest is fruitless; you can’t make a difference.” Picking up another fish, the boy launches the rescued starfish back into the sea and replies, “It makes a difference to that one.”

That is the ethos behind our camps. The number of children in care in the UK is growing, and the need is daunting. But we can make a difference in the lives each child that comes to camp, giving them a hope that may change their future.

Welcome to Starfish Kids Camp.

Your help is needed!

Hello All!

This year at RFK, each child will be given a toiletry gift bag filled with items to use during the week. Each gift pack will include 1 each of the following :

  • toothbrush
  • travel size toothpaste
  • travel size shampoo
  • travel size shower gel
  • travel size lotion
  • shower scrubby
  • travel size roll/glide on deodorant (no aerosol, please)
  • small comb or brush

Perhaps on your next shop, would you consider picking up these items? You could provide 1 child with a toiletry gift bag, or several children.

If you would like to "adopt a gift bag/bags," either post a comment with the number of bags you'll adopt, or email Misty at misty@rfk.org.uk. We would like to have all of the items collected by July 1st.

We can't thank you enough for all you are doing for RFK UK and looked-after children!

First applications are in!

RFK UK is getting REAL, folks!  We are ever so close to meeting our budget goal of £22,000, but more importantly… the first applications for RFK campers have arrived!  Be in prayer as more come in, as the big task of assigning BIGS to these special kids will be challenge.  Pray for wisdom and discernment as arrangements are made for all 30 placements at this year's camp.
