Massachusetts International Order of the Rainbow for Girls
Massachusetts Grand Assembly
What is the Legacy Fund?
Since 1949, nestled on the pristine
shores of Lake Maquan, Rainbow Camp has
welcomed Rainbow girls from all over the
state, and the country, to enjoy a traditional
summer camp experience that’s anything
but ordinary. It was founded by Mrs. Lulu H.
Gobrecht with the hope that it would
provide generations of Rainbow girls with a
fun and loving place to truly exemplify the
friendship and universality of Rainbow.
Over the past 60 years, much has
changed. Trends have come and gone,
technology has changed, and American
culture has changed as well. But one thing
hasn’t changed, the absolute joy that girls
feel when they come to Rainbow Camp. It’s
an experience that Rainbow girls of all
generations can share. They’ve all
participated in exciting classes and learned
new skills, such as: self-reliance, poise, and a
cooperative attitude toward one another, all
while being surrounded by their closest
friends and having fun.
There’s something special about
being at Rainbow Camp, as while much has
changed outside of it, within, much has
remained the same. Girls today stay in the
same cabins as girls 50 years ago, which the
signatures on the walls can attest to. It’s
amazing being surrounded by so much wonderful Rainbow history, but we need your help to preserve and grow Rainbow Camp for future generations. By donating to the Rainbow Camp Legacy Fund, you'd help fund facilities maintenance and other capital expenditures, ensuring that Rainbow Camp, and all the wonderful things it has to offer, lives on for generations to come.
The Rainbow Camp Legacy Fund was created in 2016 to help give the property some much needed upgrades, as well as to prepare for large repairs in the future. The New England weather has not been forgiving to RCMA, most things are small, holes and tears in screen doors, are taken care of quickly by our amazingly dedicated team of volunteer dads. However, sometimes we get hit with things we need extra help with, fallen trees and major building damage. That is where the Legacy Fund comes into play. Taking the burden off the regular camp budget, to quickly get our buildings and grounds repaired for another summer of campers!
