About Camp Rainbow Gold
To provide emotionally empowering experiences to Idaho’s children diagnosed with cancer and their families.
For over 25 years, Camp Rainbow Gold has only held short-term leases with existing camp properties in Idaho. With the use of leased land, CRG faces expenses and limitations that has led to programs being designed by outside factors. A permanent property for the camp would offer an opportunity to develop new programs, expand existing programs, reach more families, and design facilities that better support medically fragile children. After years of investing time, funds, and volunteer hours to build this incredible program, a secure home is crucial for the Camp’s future.
Over the last two years, the CRG Board of Directors search committee reviewed close to 50 property listings and visited no fewer than 20 sites. The 260-acre property off East Fork Road, just past the town of Triumph, checks all the boxes on the list of required attributes. Of the most significant attributes, the property has sufficient and quality land, a beautiful natural setting, proximity to Blaine County, and access to medical facilities.
What started in the mid 80’s as a week of camp for a handful of children diagnosed with cancer has grown into much more. Camp Rainbow Gold has expanded to also offer sibling camps and family retreats. Other programs include college scholarships and a teen support group. Camp Rainbow Gold is an independent, non-profit organization made up of a large network of generous, loving people who are devoted to providing emotionally empowering experiences to families dealing with a cancer diagnosis. It’s 365 days of making a difference in the lives of these children as well as their families and others who support them. The programs are sustained by community fundraising, private donations and volunteer efforts. Camp Rainbow Gold is supported by more than 400 volunteers from across the nation and has been accredited through the American Camp Association since 2002. Camp Rainbow Gold has offices in Boise and Ketchum, Idaho.
