NFL GREAT CARSON PALMER LEADS THE TEAM TO HEAL IDAHO

Carson Palmer, former NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner, and Idaho resident is joining forces with Idaho nonprofit Camp Rainbow Gold. Palmer will serve as a spokesperson for their capital campaign to “Heal Idaho” by building Hidden Paradise, Idaho’s first medical camp. 

“In my career, I’ve been surrounded by men who many characterize as some of the toughest “heroes” on earth,” said Palmer. “These children have gone through years of chemotherapy, surgeries, radiation or live with other medical challenges—they are the true heroes. They are the ones I sit in awe of. And I’m determined to do what I can to make up for the time they’ve lost getting to just be kids.”

With nearly 40 years of experience, Camp Rainbow Gold is spearheading the building of the medical camp on 172 acres outside of Fairfield. Nearly $9 million has been raised to remodel existing structures, build an on-site health center, 12 ADA cabins, shower houses, 3 bike trails, a ropes course, and more. To stay on track with future construction, support the existing buildings with updated infrastructure, and build a main lodge to safely gather campers inside, another $7 million needs to be raised.


“I’m ready to pick up a hammer and get this camp built—a camp that will serve so many children, families, and adults from across Idaho. Who wants to join me?,” said Palmer. CampRainbowGold.org
