Summer 2024
Camps

Queer and Trans Camp

is designed to support and affirm campers who identify as LGBTQIA+ gaining confidence in themselves through outdoor adventure. Famous Adventures Summer camp provides daily adventures.  And Planned Parenthood's Teen Connections empowers campers with information about navigating identity and self-advocacy. ​

 

Tell me more: 

  • ​QT Camp is made up 12 campers and three adult staff from Famous Adventures (Action camp is 13 campers and two adult staff), plus our visiting partner from Planned Parenthood. 

  • We travel in a 15-passenger van from the meeting location to our adventure activity in the morning, and our lessons in the afternoon. 

  • We also visit parks, playgrounds, find sweet treats, etc.
