What started in the mid ’80s as a week of camp for a handful of children diagnosed with cancer is now, as you may guess, much, much more. Yes, Camp Rainbow Gold is still a summer oncology camp, but it’s also a sibling camp and a family camp. It’s a college scholarship program and a teen support group. It’s 365 days of making a difference in the lives of these children as well as their families and others who support them. Camp Rainbow Gold is and independent non-profit organization.Based in Boise, Idaho, with a satellite location in Ketchum, Idaho, CRG is a large network of the most generous, loving people who are devoted to providing emotionally empowering experiences. Camp Rainbow Gold is sustained by community fundraising, private donations and volunteer efforts. Camp Rainbow Gold is supported by more than 200 volunteers from around Idaho and has been accredited through the American Camp Association since 2002.
