On Royals Opening Day, more than 1,200 volunteers team up to help kids! Fans who donate can received special editions of The Kansas City Star or commemorative Royals flags to help send kids to Rotary Youth camp and other local children's charities. Over 3 million dollars has been raised for local kids since the first GKC Day in 1988. More than $250,000 was raised in 2017.
Since 1924, more than 400,000 children with disabilities and disadvantaged youth have enjoyed a unique camping experience, free of charge, at the Rotary Youth Camp. Located at Lake Jacomo, the Rotary Youth Camp features cabins, tent camping, a mess hall, a nature trail and a wheelchair-accessible swimming pool that allows boys and girls with special needs to take part in outdoor activities. All services are available free of charge to campers and their sponsoring organizations.
