Under the Rainbow began eight years ago as a before and after school program. Today, it is a summer camp for children ages 5-8, running from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. They have a small group of less than ten participants per week, attending at an affordable cost.
This is the first year that the camp has been held at St. Elizabeth; the past three years, was held in Etobicoke. Focus on Youth has been working with the organization for two years, and this year there is one leader working at the camp.
The main objectives of the camp are to give the participants a positive attitude toward their peers and students, to help them learn more about themselves, to provide opportunities for parental involvement, to focus on each child as a whole, to show the importance of community services, and to have fun! Campers go on trips to the library and park, and have visits at the camp from firemen and policemen. On a regular day they read, draw, and participate in other fun activities and games.
