About

Camp Catch-A-Rainbow programs provide the opportunity for children to simply have a good time and enjoy the experience of exercise, recreation, and companionship through activities paced to meet the needs of kids with cancer. Campers enjoy swimming, archery, horseback riding, high adventure ropes courses, arts and crafts, canoeing, and much more all while being surrounded by peers who understand what it's like to have a cancer diagnosis. Staffed by volunteers, Camp Catch-A-Rainbow (August 6-August 11, 2017) and Young Camper’s Day (August 6, 2017) offers campers 24 hour access to health care professionals to meet their cancer care needs. Volunteer Health Care Professionals are currently needed to act as cabin counselors to help meet the medical care needs of the participants. Volunteer positions are also available for general cabin counselors (male volunteers are especially needed). The need for volunteers is higher for the week-long program.
