Giving Tuesday

You Can Help Save a Life

Donate and help us send a kid to camp.

Welcome Friend Association's RAINBOW CAMP® welcomes LGBTQ2+ youth from across Canada and the United States who are looking to experience summer camp, many for the first time. We need your help!
Located in beautiful Northern Ontario, RAINBOW CAMP® is an inclusive and non-judgemental space.  We are nestled along the fresh water shores of McCarroll Lake surrounded by soaring pine trees with clean sandy beaches and the most stunning sunsets that will fill your soul. That's Rainbow Camp! A camp for kids to be themselves. A safe space.
One week of camp costs $1,500 per camper.   Where possible, campers pay a registration fee of $350.  Our policy is to make room for all campers regardless of their financial circumstances. Any donation you can make, such as the registration fee for a camper, helps us reach that goal.
Welcome Friend Association is a Canadian registered charity (Registration no.:  830794715 RR0001)

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 🙂
