What People Are Saying

Rainbow Camp has given me a safe space that I can be 100% myself and feel valid and loved

Camper

I learned a lot of things, a lot of new experiences that I am going to use in my life
moving forward. It exceeded my expectations!

ROC Participant

This has been the most connection she has had since the pandemic.

ROC Parent

My daughter has not stopped talking about camp. She loved meeting everyone, she is bragging about all her new friends around the world, and she loved that she was able to be herself and didn’t have to fear judgement from anyone.

ROC Parent

I miss everything about camp, every year even through the toughest moments I think of camp and it helps me keep going ❤️ y’all are miracle workers I swear❤️

My daughter enjoyed her week at camp…called it “life changing”!! Thank you to all the staff and team!! You are greatly appreciated!

Parent

I’ve been going to rainbow camp for 2 years and it is amazing! I’ve not only made friends, I’ve made family. I feel so accepted when I go and I can have a hate free week with loving counselors and caring friends. Thanks Chris and Harry! Can’t wait to come back next year 🙂

Rainbow Camp’s philosophy is that LGBTQ2+ young adults can live the change they want to see in the world.

My first dance that I was able to be myself.

Camper

I was afraid my son would commit suicide. Then he went to Rainbow Camp and came back happier than I had ever seen him.  I believe Rainbow Camp® saved his life. Thank you!
