Our Philosophy 

Rainbow Programmes for Children (“Rainbow”) is committed to the HIGHFIVE Principles of Healthy Child Development. Our commitment is to provide children with opportunities to:

PLAY – camp is fun!

Rainbow gives children enough time to do things in their own way making fun part of every activity.

PARTICIPATE  all campers are included!

Rainbow gives children opportunities to participate in all activities in whatever way they can.

MASTER  campers are challenged to learn new skills!

Rainbow builds on the strengths and abilities of each child in a non-competitive and active environment while ensuring the programs are safe, age appropriate, varied and exciting.

MAKE FRIENDS – building new friendships!

Through a sense of belonging, Rainbow encourages children to play together while valuing the diversity and uniqueness in each other.

Be with CARING ADULTS – positive role models!

Rainbow provides an open environment where staff and volunteers nurture and care for children, promoting acceptance, tolerance and fun!
