Canada’s Reach for the Rainbow


Reach for the Rainbow is a Canadian-based organization that works to send children with disabilities to camp programs. Donna Trella founded the organization in the early 1980s in Ontario.

“Working with a variety of Partners in Integration throughout the province of Ontario, Reach for the Rainbow provides integrated recreation, respite and outreach opportunities designed to engage the hearts and minds of all individuals. Our programs encourage environments for typical children and individuals to live, play, work and inspire themselves alongside children and youth with disabilities, creating transformative experiences of belonging. What makes Reach for the Rainbow particularly unique is the fact that we started out and remain today an umbrella for all disabilities – both developmental and physical.” Source: Reach for the Rainbow
