History

Founded in 1951 by the Harold G. Knight Foundations, Camp Rainbow, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to offer deserving children of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania a one, weeklong, overnight summer camping experience at a low cost to the family. Children enrolled in public school/public charter schools, ages 7-15 and qualify for the USDA Free or Reduced Lunch Program are eligible to attend camp for little or no cost. 

Up to 60 children each week will experience proper guidance in democratic living in the community. Campers will take their place as caring and constructive citizens of the community.  Children garner a true appreciation of nature by taking part in swimming, arts and crafts, archery, boating, nature study, campfires, skits, and storytelling while making friendships that last a lifetime. 

Through a variety of fun, adventure-based problem solving and team building experiences they will discover their leadership talents and experience the power of respect, responsibility, and healthy relationships. Additionally, campers become knowledgeable about mindfulness, healthy living as they participate in discussions about nutrition, exercise, stress, conflict resolution, bullying prevention. Some of the activities of camp include swimming, arts and crafts, archery, hiking on trails, row boating, basketball, fishing, campfires, skits and storytelling, nature study and adventure education programs (team building and low ropes). Camp Rainbow seeks to empower and inspire children to become self-sustaining adults.
