Camp Rainbow Gold will move forward with its plan to expand its campground near Hailey.

The board met Wednesday night and decided to move ahead despite complaints from neighbors in the East Fork Canyon.

The summer camp serves kids and their families dealing with cancer.

The expansion is proposed for land near the community of Triumph, between Ketchum and Hailey.

The camp has been in the Wood River Valley for 25 years.

Dozens of nearby neighbors have complained that expanding the camp would increase traffic problems in their area.

Camp organizers say they already have come up with ways to address everyone's concerns.

Camp rainbow gold has property in escrow for their future camp home.

The board was unanimous in its decision to move forward.
