Land Acknowledgement

Rainbow Camp® is located on land of the Robinson-Huron, Robinson-Superior Treaty and Treaty 9 territories and is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Cree and Métis people who have thrived through time. We acknowledge that Rainbow Camp is built upon occupied territories and respect our collective responsibility to protect and nurture the land, to recognize the legacies of colonial histories past as well as those of today, and the Indigenous voice within Rainbow Camp’s® programming.


Registration is now open!
