Tennessee Rainbow is fortunate to own MontMilner Rainbow Camp which includes 68 acres of land in Sewanee, Tennessee. The land was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Joe Milner of Monteagle, Tennessee in 1972. It includes a dining hall, a dormitory, two pavilions, a lake, storage buildings, a boat house, an area for reflection and meditation near the lake, and a caretaker’s house.
Each year, Rainbow Girls travel to the camp for Camp Day, which is a day of fun and fellowship. Each Assembly provides a booth with games or crafts as a means of raising money to support the camp. This tradition has continued ever since the camp was dedicated on October 19, 1974 with its first Camp Day festival. The games are always followed by an auction of items provided by each Assembly.
Leadership weekends and week-long camping experiences have also been popular since its inception. Many Rainbow Girls have spent memorable times at the camp where they increased their understanding of their Rainbow teachings and spent time with their Rainbow Sisters.
Because of a generous donation from the Wiley and Hazel Miller estate, further improvements have been added such as a large multi-purpose pavilion, the replacement of worn-out equipment, and the start of a new dormitory. Funds from Camp Days and Grand Worthy Advisor camp projects have provided fans, fish to restock the lake, solar lights for paths, and many other necessary items.
On September 18, 1999, on the grounds of MontMilner Rainbow Camp, Tennessee Rainbow placed a time capsule in the ground for future Rainbow Girls and workers to know about their past. It will be exhumed in the year 2020. All Assemblies present participated by putting various items in the capsule.
