In 1985, my wife, Diane and I, developed a residential camp for some of the most severely abused children in foster care, known then as Royal Family Kids’ Camp. Royal Family KIDS, Inc. is now the Nation’s leading network of Camps, Clubs & Mentors for children from the foster care system.  To ensure the perpetuity of this vision, we have launched For the Children Foundation.  Creating a Legacy of Hope is my passion.

Who i am?

I call myself a “Spiriteneur.”  I have been married to my wife, Diane, for 47 years.  We have a married daughter (Renee) and three granddaughters. Their family just completed an international adoption.  You can find my bio HERE.

What i do?

I travel over 150 days a year to share the message of hope and healing for children from the foster care system. My primary focus is creating a Legacy of Hope through my new organization – For the Children Foundation.

Why i do it?

If I don’t, who will?  There are so many great causes to rally around, but none so urgent as the future of our nation’s children. My focus is to raise up people who will create a better future for the children we serve.

Where i am?

Residing in the same place for over 30 years, I call Costa Mesa, California my home. Email me at: WayneRTesch@gmail.com or call my cell phone at: 714.326.8493

Legacy Cruise – 2016

Our Legacy Cruise to New England was a wonderful experience!  Diane & I were honored to be with passionate people who are veterans of Royal Family KIDS Camps & Mentoring Clubs for the week.  We got together to talk about the impact that their legacy can have on the future of America’s children in foster care.   We hope to see you on the next one… 2018?
