Camp Rainbow is for children who have, or have had cancer or a chronic blood disorder. Every year, campers have the opportunity to enjoy fun and meaningful experiences with others in a supportive environment full of activities. Camp Rainbow offers kids and their families the opportunity to establish friendships and have fun.
Camp Rainbow is held for one week every summer at Friendly Pines Camp in Prescott, AZ. The camp session includes activities such as horseback riding, arts and crafts, canoeing, fishing, swimming, archery and much more. Camp Rainbow welcomes patients of Phoenix Children's Hospital's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, who are ages 7-17. Campers are grouped in cabins based on age and gender, and they participate in activities with a variety of campers.Check this page often throughout the week to see how much fun your kids are having while at Camp Rainbow!
The staff is busy getting Camp Rainbow ready for when our campers arrive tomorrow! We have a feeling that everything is going to be awesome!
My name is Nicholas Spake. From August 1st to August 8th, I will be keeping you all updated on the day to day events here at Camp Rainbow as their social media coordinator. Before I share everyone's camp experience with you, you might want to know a little bit about myself. My life hit a roadblock in 2013 when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, but I refused to let having cancer prevent me from finishing college with a 4.0 GPA. In May 2013, I graduated from Arizona State University, achieving a BA in Theatre and a minor in Communications. Teaching me just how precious life is, my disease further influenced me to reach out to others through writing this blog and creating this website. Today, I’m happy to say that I am currently cancer free and I can't wait for the first day of camp. Until then, feel free to read some of my movie reviews and editorials at www.NickPicksFlicks.com. Did I mention that I like to throw in a shameless plug every now and then?
