2023 Camperships

Deadline is April 15, 2023

Rainbow Camp of Massachusetts was founded in 1948 by Mrs. Lulu H. Gobrecht, the founder of Rainbow Assemblies in Massachusetts. Since then it has been a place where all Rainbow Girls can meet and make new friends. Campers are welcome from any Grand Jurisdiction. The friendships made at Rainbow Camp are some of the most treasured memories of any Rainbow Girl.

Campers are unplugged for the week. No internet connected devices or phones will be used by campers.
