“I loved being a part of a community, and being surrounded by people who can truly understand me, more than many of my friends. I also really like the accepting, affirming, and loving energy of this camp.”
– Past CampOUT! camper
CampOUT! can be a life-changing experience for queer, trans, Two-Spirit and allied youth. The trust, honesty, humor, and openness that can be cultivated in a camping situation is empowering and inspiring. It is an opportunity to have a safe and fun experience in nature—and a place to make connections that impact lives in positive ways beyond camp.
In order to include campers from all walks of life, we need your help to keep the camp financially accessible. This past year the student leadership program cost $1,000 per camper, but we only asked for a $60 commitment fee. The camp is only made possible by the generosity of our supporters, so your support is essential to making the camp possible.
2SLGBTQ+ communities are resilient, but we need support to bring together rural, urban, and suburban youth from across BC and the Yukon to be able to address health inequities and provide access to fun, friends, and hope for the future! By making a contribution, you will come together with like-minded supporters and help ensure CampOUT! remains accessible for youth from across BC and the Yukon.
Please make a donation to CampOUT!. By making a gift, you will help provide queer, trans, Two-Spirit and allied youth with new skills, friendships and resources to support their physical, mental, social, sexual, educational, and spiritual well-being. You will be helping to create a supportive space for LGBTQ2S+ youth to celebrate—and be celebrated for—who they are!
