MONTEREY, MEXICO (January 31, 2017) — The Royal Holiday Foundation was launched in 2014 by the Royal Holiday Vacation Club with the goal of providing underprivileged children with the opportunity to enjoy their first vacation. This service is provided through week-long camps sponsored by the Royal Holiday Foundation in conjunction with Colonias de Vacaciones, a private assistance institutions that has provided children with life-changing experiences through vacations for over 50 years. Royal Holiday Foundation has pledged all of the donations they receive to Colonias de Vacaciones.
The first Royal Holiday Foundation camp was held in December 2014 in Tenancingo, Hidalgo (Estado de México) at an ex-hacienda, with 87 children in attendance. At the second Royal Holiday Foundation camp, held in 2016, 130 children participated. The foundation’s director, Concha León Portilla, said, “It’s a pleasure to work with Colonias de Vacaciones. It’s about helping fulfill the dream that many underprivileged kids have of experiencing a vacation. After seeing the first camp’s success, we felt like treating 130 children to a vacation, probably the only one they have taken in their life.”
To date, 480 children have participated in camping vacations in Tenancingo, Hidalgo sponsored by the Royal Holiday Foundation. The goal of the Royal Holiday Foundation is to increase sponsorship to 1,200 people per year, including children and adults, in order to provide 6,000 people with their first vacation experience over the course of five years.
