With its long-sought “forever home” in hand, Camp Rainbow Gold is rolling out its designs for the new property—and seeking help to fund it—during an open house at the Limelight Hotel in Ketchum on Tuesday, Oct. 29, from 4-7 p.m.
Right now, the camp, which caters to kids and families battling pediatric cancer, operates on short-term leases at Cathedral Pines, north of Ketchum. But it has outgrown the facility, according to organizers. After a protracted stalemate with Blaine County, the camp purchased 172 acres of the defunct Soldier Mountain Ranch and Resort north of Fairfield earlier this year, its “hidden paradise.”
“We’ve been busy at work on our new property and want to share our vision, master plan and capital campaign with our friends in the Wood River Valley,” Rainbow Gold spokeswoman K.C. Covert said. “There will be no formal presentation—guests are welcome to come and go and meet with CRG staff to ask questions and learn more about our plans.”
Camp Rainbow Gold will also raffle off two tickets to its 2020 Share Your Heart Ball—face value: $195 each—to attendees. This year’s gala is scheduled for March 14, 2020, at Sun Valley Resort. For more information on Camp Rainbow Gold’s new campus, visit their website here.
