Camp Fee Subsidy Information

Rainbow recognizes some families are not able to fully finance their child’s camp fees and Rainbow works in partnership with the community in order to obtain funding to offset camp fees for qualifying families.


Before applying to Rainbow’s subsidy program, families must first contact:
1. County of Wellington Child Care Services (519-837-3620)
2. The Children’s Foundation of Guelph (519-826-9551)

If you do not qualify for either of those programs, you can apply for subsidy through Rainbow Programmes for Children.

Subsidized funding is based on our best fundraising efforts.



Camp fee subsidies are limited to one camp session per camper for the Children, LIT or Teen Camp Programs.


Eligibility Criteria:

* You have one or more children 4 – 21 years of age

* You live in Guelph or Wellington County

* You are working at least part-time or attending an educational institution or training program

* You have experienced a sudden change in financial circumstance or hardship


How to apply:

Please contact the Administrator at or 519-837-0387 for more information about how to apply for camp subsidy.


Rainbow’s Policy:

All families receiving camp fee subsidy through Rainbow Programmes for Children must contribute a portion of those camp fees, per child, per camp session. The exact amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Subsidy does not cover Extended Care or special purchases made at Rainbow and cannot be combined with any other discount offers.
