Held at Trout Lodge in Potosi, Missouri
Family Camp is a place for kids with cancer and their families to have fun and enjoy a camp experience in a safe atmosphere. Held annually at Trout Lodge in Potosi, Missouri over Labor Day Weekend, this camp provides the whole family with the opportunity to bond and share feelings, but most importantly to let loose and have fun. Families participate in a variety of activities which include exploring the outdoors, arts and crafts, horseback riding, archery, boating, magic shows, and much more.
Like all other Camp Rainbow Programs, Family Camp will provide the special medical expertise and close monitoring required for children with cancer. Medical personnel are available around-the-clock to administer routine chemotherapy, arrange for blood counts, handle any medical emergencies, and adjust any programs to the camper’s individual needs. The Camp is staffed by volunteers who are carefully selected to ensure the safety of all campers. Staff members include physicians, oncology nurses, pediatric oncology social workers, teachers, cancer survivors, and past camp families.
