Location And Facilities
Rainbow Acres is located in the central part of Arizona, just an hour and a half drive north of Phoenix and 20 minutes from Sedona and its incredible Red Rocks.
Camp Verde’s elevation of 3,100 feet makes for a temperate climate with all four seasons. The Verde Valley area boasts five Arizona State Parks with specialties ranging from Old West history to outdoor activities like hiking, boating, fishing and swimming. Prehistoric ruins are plentiful at National Forest Service sites as well as Montezuma Castle National Monument and Tuzigoot National Monument. Spectacular Grand Canyon National Park is close enough for a day visit, too.

The Rainbow Health and Wellness Center is a hub of activity where a team of nurses and our medical records coordinator take care of appointments to various doctors and specialists, oversee nutrition and weight goals and manage the overall physical and emotional health needs of each Rancher.
The Palmer Community Center at Rainbow Acres is a marvelous blend of beauty and practicality at the heart of the campus. A complete commercial kitchen with professionals at the helm is where all foods are ordered and most are prepared. Congregate meals are served at midday in the dining area and for special evening events, while most evening meals are prepared in the kitchen and then catered to the Rancher houses to be finalized and served family style. Several staff offices are in the Palmer Center, as is the popular Roadrunner Fitness Center. Rancher talent shows, movies, dances, classes, meetings and performances by various entertainers also take place in the large Rainbow Hall and smaller Celebration Hall in the Palmer Community Center.
