Family Connection Spotlight:
Spring Break Camp
Over spring break, Rainbow Days' Family Connection team was thrilled to host 36 children experiencing homelessness for the 2021 Spring Break Camp held at Ascend Camp and Retreat Center. There, campers enjoyed outdoor activities like horseback riding, zip-lining and sports as well as interactive science and art classes that made learning fun and engaging for them. The camp was a great way for the kids to decompress and bond with peers and positive mentors, especially amidst the added stressors this school year has brought.

Celebrating Women's History
We love sharing stories about young people who faced adversity and achieved success, just like the kids we work with at Rainbow Days! In honor of Women's History Month, Rainbow Days is proud to share the story of Gloria Bradford, the first Black woman to graduate from the University of Texas School of Law in Austin.
