Building Together

If it takes a village to raise one child, it will take many hands to build this camp.

Business leaders and community pillars are standing up, stepping forward, and committing to make Hidden Paradise a reality.

NFL Great Carson Palmer Leads the Team to Heal Idaho

Carson Palmer, former NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner, and Idaho resident is joining forces with Idaho nonprofit Camp Rainbow Gold. Palmer will serve as a spokesperson for their capital campaign to “Heal Idaho” by building Hidden Paradise, Idaho’s first medical camp.

Palmer makes his home in Sun Valley, Idaho with his wife and young family. Like so many other Idahoans, his children have been awestruck by our wild rivers, sky-scraping mountains, and deep forests. Now, he’s helping us ensure every child, no matter the diagnosis or disability, gets the chance to be a kid; to play outside, explore Idaho, and be with their peers at camp. 

“In my career, I’ve been surrounded by men who many characterize as some of the toughest “heroes” on earth,” said Palmer. “These children have gone through years of chemotherapy, surgeries, radiation, or live with other medical challenges—they are the true heroes. They are the ones I sit in awe of. And I’m determined to do what I can to make up for the time they’ve lost getting to just be kids.

Leading Builders, Building Together

“Camp Rainbow Gold’s project to build a medical camp for Idaho is personal to me. Not only because I am a cancer survivor, but because I believe so strongly in this organization, its oversight team, and the multitude of volunteers who make these camps possible. I see the need for this accessible, uniquely designed facility that will serve so many. We have compiled an amazing team of top construction executives and engineers in this state; all who are giving much of their time and knowledge to plan and build this camp.”

— Chuck Graves, President, McAlvain Companies

“I have a strong desire to do good for others by sharing insight and experience I have gained over years of building projects similar to this camp. I do believe that people are inherently good, and I have this belief confirmed each day when working with Hidden Paradise. Sometimes the best way to promote goodness in this world is to just do something good for others.”
