Timeline PhotosIMPORTANT UPDATE!!!

Dear Campers and Community,

First and foremost, THANK YOU to our wonderful community. Your patience, support, kindness, and understanding through this tough time have been deeply appreciated as we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the spread of COVID-19 is beginning to slow down here in Ontario, these unprecedented times remain uncertain. After carefully monitoring this situation over the past months, we have made the extremely difficult decision to not run any summer camp programs this summer 2020. This decision was not made lightly. Our team has spent countless hours communicating with other Canadian summer camps, not-for-profit organizations, and the Ontario Camps Association (OCA) to determine the best course of action to keep our camp community healthy. We are heartbroken that we will not be able to meet in-person this summer, however we are excited to use this time as an opportunity to expand our organization to include creative new initiatives to serve the community. Though Rainbow Camp as we know it will not happen this summer, we are actively planning alternative ways for us all to connect!

We miss all of our campers, staff, volunteers, and community supporters deeply. We are a resilient, strong, and loving community. We will grow through this challenge together.

Sincerely wishing you the best from a social distance,
Stephanie Voyer (she/her)
Rainbow Camp Director
