                                                About Gary and Palma

Gary and Palma have a passion for young people and have invested in the lives of youth through various programs for over twenty years. When their seven children were grown, they found themselves left with a large house and property, and realized that they could use it to continue to make a positive difference. In 2004 they got involved in Royal Family Kids camps. Three years later, they became directors of a Teen Reach Adventure Camp, which provides a three-day single-gender summer camp for abused, abandoned and neglected youths in the foster care community.  The teen years are normally rough years, but tend to be much more difficult for those in the foster care community. Gary and Palma soon recognized the enormous impact that just three days could make in the life-direction of the teenagers they served. They love building relationships with teenagers and helping them to reach their fullest potential. They also enjoy spending time with their nine grandchildren and eating ice cream.
