Lake & Pool
Kayaking, swimming, canoeing, water slides a, zip lines, water obstacle courses and fishing are just a few examples of what campers are able to do during lake and pool time!
Rock Climbing & Archery
We have dedicated volunteers who come to camp and help kids climb rock walls and shooting arrows in archery. This time allows campers to face their fears. As a camper climbs, other campers and counselor's encourage them to try their best. No matter what their best is, campers congratulate
Arts & Crafts
Campers are able to explore creativity. From simple bracelets or quilt squares, campers are able to engage in various activities.
Camp Rainbow provides an opportunity to disconnect from the daily grind and enjoy some quality time at camp. Whether it’s a camper’s first experience with us or they’ve attended before, our Youth Program allows everyone to take the time to learn useful and exciting skills while creating unforgettable memories.
Campfires, S'mores, Fireworks, Talent Shows, Dance Night, Cabin Night, Game and Movie Night plus MORE!

Making Dreams Come True
Our goal is to make Camp Rainbow a fun and supportive camp for pediatric cancer patients and survivors in Mississippi. We’re proud to never have turned a camper away for financial reasons, and it’s people like you who help make this a reality. The positive change we see in those who come to camp is truly priceless. Consider making a donation of any size to our camp fund. Every cent counts.

Frequently Asked Questions
My child is still taking chemotherapy. Can he or she still go?
Pediatric oncologists and pediatric oncologist nurses will be on site. We recommend talking to your child's oncologist for more information!
How do you deal with homesickness?
We have found that children who are homesick and can call home will often be more upset. We encourage counselors to show special attention to children who are homesick and engage them in activities. If the need arises, you can call one of the volunteers or check on our Facebook page to stay up to date with camp.
What should my child pack?
Children should pack both water shoes for lake time and tennis shoes for rock climbing. Your child will also need towels, linens, shampoo/conditioner, swimming attire, and five outfits.
