About the Camp

Welcome to Camp Rainbow! At Camp Rainbow, your child will participate in activities like swimming, canoeing, fishing and much more, while developing independence and confidence in caring for their diabetes.

Camp Rainbow is a day camp. We will supply snacks and lots of cold beverages and water. All campers should bring a lunch (which does not have to be refrigerated) each day except Thursday, which is Parents' Day. We'll provide hot dogs and burgers that day. Parents are invited to attend all day on Thursday and to take part in discussions about the latest diabetes research and treatments and a host of other topics to be determined closer to Camp. You'll also get to witness the fabulous end-of-Camp Spirit Contest!

Since everyone is affected by the presence of diabetes in a family, siblings of appropriate camper age are encouraged to attend. Due to a limited number of spaces, siblings who register late in the season may be placed ion a waiting list to ensure that all children with diabetes are able to attend. To help ensure sibling attendance, please register and pay in full early!

We hope this will be an educational and FUN experience for your child. Your child's safety at camp is the primary concern of our outstanding medical staff, led by Dr. Sheila Gunn from Texas Children's Hospital. Supervision of the children during all of their activities will be by members of the Junior League of Houston.

The American Diabetes Association is committed to providing educational information and referral services for children with diabetes and their families, advocating for fair and quality treatment of children with diabetes in schools, and increasing federal funding for diabetes research.
