Camp Rainbow Gold Plans New Camp
A generous $1.76 million land donation will help the organization that offers summer camps to children with cancer and their siblings expand.
According to the Idaho Statesman, Camp Rainbow Gold has been eyeing a 275 acre property near Ketchum's Eastfork neighborhood to build a new camp site. Part of that property is owned by Rich and Nancy Robbins, who generously donated their land located inside that property to the organization to help lower the cost of purchasing it.
The new camp is still very early in the planning stages. Their executive director tells the Statesman that they are going through the process of making sure the site is as safe as possible for campers. That means making sure that the land has the proper access to fire and transportation resources.
Camp Rainbow Gold currently holds its summer camps at Cathedral Pines in the Wood River Valley. Building their own permanent camp has been a dream project for ten years.
