Dear Campers and Community,
First and foremost, THANK YOU to our wonderful community. Your patience, support, kindness, and understanding through this tough time have been deeply appreciated as we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the spread of COVID-19 is beginning to slow down here in Ontario, these unprecedented times remain uncertain. After carefully monitoring this situation over the past months, we have made the extremely difficult decision to not run any summer camp programs this summer 2020. This decision was not made lightly. Our team has spent countless hours communicating with other Canadian summer camps, not-for-profit organizations, and the Ontario Camps Association (OCA) to determine the best course of action to keep our camp community healthy. We are heartbroken that we will not be able to meet in-person this summer, however we are excited to use this time as an opportunity to expand our organization to include creative new initiatives to serve the community. Though Rainbow Camp as we know it will not happen this summer, we are actively planning alternative ways for us all to connect!
We miss all of our campers, staff, volunteers, and community supporters deeply. We are a resilient, strong, and loving community. We will grow through this challenge together.
Sincerely wishing you the best from a social distance,
Stephanie Voyer (she/her)

So sad to hear but definitely understand. I am hopefull that my son will be able to attend next year and look forward to hearing about any other activities!
I think that's the right decision, unfortunately. This keeps everyone safe to be able to be there next year. My son is heart broken 💔 though. Not only is camp cancelled but he turns 17 this year, so this is his last year to be able to go. Rainbow camp has been such an amazing experience for him 🌈❤️ lots of love, stay safe.
love to you!
Such a challenging decision. Peace to you.
We'll miss you all, but we will see you in 2021! ❤️ Thank you for everything you do to hold space for our kids.
So sad but totally understandable.
You always have our kids’ safety at heart, first and foremost. Thank you for everything. We’ll all come back in 2021 stronger than ever
This is definitely the right thing to do, thank you for being so responsible and caring. That said, my kid is just gutted to hear this. Rainbow Camp has become a huge and wonderful part of his life. See you next year!

No amount of social distancing will keep us from planning amazing things for Rainbow Camp!
🌈 As of right now, we are still hoping that camp can happen. By the end of April we will be able to tell you what our summer will look like. Dates may change, programs may happen online, but we will come through this stronger than ever. Hang in there sweet rainbow family ❤ @ London, Ontario ...
Do what you have to do to stay safe!!! 💖
