Camp Rainbow

Camp Rainbow is a summer camping experience for children with cancer or hemophilia and their siblings which began in 1982 as a one day event in a local park.

Camp Rainbow is now a week long experience with an estimated 100 campers attending each year. Children who have lost a sibling to cancer are also strongly encouraged to attend. The camp is staffed by physicians, nurses and other volunteers who provide necessary medical support and emotional encouragement.

Camp Rainbow is held at Camp Don-Lee, located on the Neuse River near Arapahoe, NC. Our goals in providing this camping experience include: building self-confidence and independence, emotional and social development and well being, and learning and sharing support with others who are living with a chronic blood disorder. Camp activities include sailing, canoeing, swimming (lessons adapted for handicapped), arts and crafts, music, campfires, nature, and specialized support and educational sessions.
