Subcontractors, construction workers and vendors have partnered under the direction of Blackrock Homes to build 12 cabins compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and two shower houses at Camp Rainbow Gold’s future Hidden Paradise, a medically designed, accessible, adaptive camp to be used not only for oncology camps, but by other nonprofits from across the state. Blackrock is in the middle of building the first of the cabins as a prototype, which will allow leaders from other Idaho charities to make sure the cabins fit their specific camp needs before the rest are built next spring, according to a press release from Camp Rainbow Gold.
“We are hoping to set an example for others to join in our efforts to build Hidden Paradise,” said Blackrock Project Manager Joey Benart in a statement. “Anyone who went to summer camp never forgets what that was like and we want these kids to be able to carry those memories and feelings with them. We are happy to be part of the team making this medical camp such a special place.”
