Annual Campaign

You made a difference so 3,700 children with special needs and their families could get the help they needed in 2022. This season we’re asking for a gift in support of Rainbows’ Family Support Services and Camp Woodchuck

Camp Woodchuck is our recreational and leisure summer day program for school-age youth and young adults with special needs. Camp is filled with hands-on activities, special events, shenanigans and so much fun! This year Camp is back in-person at Kids’ Cove after 3 years of in-home summer services.

You can help Carlos enjoy summer at Camp Woodchuck

Carlos loves Camp Woodchuck and has enjoyed the opportunity for more than 7 years. “He looks forward to each day and being around his friends. The choir and showing off his dance moves are his favorite part of Camp,” said his mom Ana. “We appreciate that he has a safe, fun option in the summer that works for all of us. He is really happy to be back at Kids’ Cove this summer.”

Families rely on your support for summer help

A girl with a lot of energy who loves music and fashion, 14-year-old Lilly can’t stay home by herself in the summer while her parents work. “Camp Woodchuck provides a place where Lilly can be Lilly. A place she doesn’t feel alone during the long summer months,” said her mother Beatriz.

“When Lilly started attending Camp, she was very shy. Now she speaks more and is confident and everybody notices.”

Your gift brings much needed support and confidence as youth learn to become more independent during the summer.
Families are counting on you to help raise $50,000 by June 30, 2023 for services.

Your support matters!
