Camp is the best place in the world

Our recreational and nurturing environment provides campers and their families with space to create positive memories, build self-esteem, make new friends and experience relief from the everyday stresses caused by their illness.

Making Dreams Come True Since 1988

It all started when the founder, Allen Brockman, visited an ill child in the hospital whose wish was to go to a summer camp. Allen set out to make this child’s dream a reality. In the summer of 1988, his vision was realized with the opening of Camp Rainbow.

Since then, we have served over 13,000 campers. Until there is a cure, Camp Rainbow will continue to provide free camping experiences for these incredible children.


Help Provide a One-of-a-Kind Experience For Some Amazing Kids

Camp Rainbow programs are made possible thanks to the time and effort of our generous volunteers!

To effectively run these cost-free programs, we recruit more than 350 volunteers every year. In addition to the volunteers who help out during our seven Camp Rainbow programs, we are always in need of bright and energetic individuals to help out with “behind the scenes” tasks.
