Welcome to Camp Creative’s Camp-y Camp, where self-expression is celebrated, and everyone is welcome! 

We believe that no matter how you choose to express yourself, there is a place for you here. Our camp is specially designed to support families and kids belonging to the 2SLGBTQ+ community, as we understand the importance of creating a safe and inclusive space for their creativity, confidence, and sense of community. 

We celebrate all families and ways of being a family at our camp. Whether your child identifies as part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community or not, or if they are still figuring things out, Camp-y Camp offers a safe and affirming environment for them to play, learn, be creative, and express themselves.  

At Camp-y Camp, we take pride in our commitment to making spaces safer for 2SLGBTQ+ kids. Our instructors are members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community themselves and have curated a program that includes fun and engaging activities for all, inspired by campy art. Whether it’s through painting, drawing, or dance, we encourage our campers to express themselves freely and authentically.- Join us at Camp-y Camp and experience the joy of self-expression in a welcoming and supportive environment!

During this 4-day camp, your children will explore themes such as creative writing prompts, goofy storytelling and dress-up runway, puppetry, and set design. Our experienced and enthusiastic team of instructors and volunteers will ensure your child’s welfare and create an enjoyable experience for them.
