Mountain Express: Camp Rainbow Gold Loses Funding Stream From American Cancer Society

Posted By on Wed, Mar 27, 2013 at 9:41 AM

With a vow to continue its 30-year tradition of offering a life-affirming respite, Idaho's Camp Rainbow Gold recently announced that it would be losing funding for camp and college scholarships from the American Cancer Society.

This morning's Idaho Mountain Express reports that the national charity decided to cuts its financial ties to the camp's scholarship program after a "comprehensive analysis of its programs, services and fundraising initiatives."

Camp Rainbow Gold, which operates what it calls "an oncology camp, a sibling camp and family camp" at Cathedral Pines, north of Ketchum, quickly announced that it was in the process of securing its own private, independent 501(c)(3) status to continue its offerings, according to the Mountain Express. Camp officials said they fully expect to continue to operate all of the camps, programs and services at no cost to families, and plan to "achieve independence" by year's end.
