Former Chapter Director for Royal Family KIDS Camp
Jim and Theresa Johnston married on New Year’s Eve, 2016. They both had a heart to serve children in need, and that was their goal when they married; to build an orphanage overseas or get involved in children’s missions. Royal Family KIDS (now For the Children) came along, and when they found they could serve children of abuse, abandonment and neglect in our area, they became directors of Royal Family KIDS Camp through Harvestime Church in Eau Claire.
This past summer, they handed the director position over to Michael and See Donze, who attended Director’s training in August. Mike and See have been a part of Royal Family KIDS Camp for two years, and will fill this position very well.
Jim and Theresa have future plans to work with foster children throughout northwest Wisconsin
Since 1985, Royal Family KIDS (RFK) has been offering free week-long summer camps for children of abuse or neglect who have been placed in foster care. For many of these children a week at summer camp is a first. It is a life changing experience for the kids.
Royal Family KIDS (RFK) develops camps across the country and internationally, with the goal of offering weeks of camp to every 6-12 year old in foster care each summer. In addition to camp, these foster kids have the opportunity to participate in club time and 9-month mentor programs.

The Fierce Freedom Podcast aims to shine light on all aspects of modern-day slavery by sharing compelling conversations with individuals who are using their passions and talents to fight human trafficking and exploitation. By telling these stories, we hope to both educate listeners through spreading awareness and to inspire individuals to rise up and fight within their sphere of influence.
Once you have confirmed the date and time that works with our producer, you will receive a calendar invite with a link to a Zoom meeting. If you need to change the date or time we ask you try to let us know 7 days ahead of scheduled recording.
We typically ask guests to reserve an hour of recording time, please let us know if you need to leave early so we can be sure to adjust accordingly.
The recording will then be edited for clarity and timeliness and will typically air the following Tuesday at 5am CDT. If you’d like to listen to the recording in advance, please let our producer know by the Friday before the air date.
If there are any topics you’d prefer not to speak on please let our producer know, we are also happy to edit anything out in post-production. Recording style is relaxed and conversational. Even though this is a serious topic our goal is to present information in an accessible way to listeners, we like to end on a note of inspiration and hope whenever possible.
That being said, relax, be yourself, and as always thank you so much for sharing your time and talents with us!
"I believe that all jails desperately need your training as the victims of human trafficking frequently pass through the system. If staff is not trained on the warning signs of human trafficking and what the victims my look like, these are missed opportunities to provide help."

“Your agency is my greatest resource to share with anyone I talk to.”
Amy O’Donahue, Deputy, Specialized Enforcement, Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Officer Ashland and Bayfield County Sheriff’s Offices
