  • Winter Family Camp 2021: February 13 & 14

    Based on the belief that families play an essential role in the emotional, physical and social development of children, this program focuses on strengthening the family unit, while creating an environment that helps to foster peer support groups. This year we will host a unique experience featuring in person and virtual programs. Parents and children are invited to join us and be a part of the magic! Families must have a transgender or gender diverse child between the ages of 10-17 to participate. For the first time, Winter Family Camp will invite families from both Camp Mulberry and Camp Laurel.

    We’ll be meeting up in Pasadena on February 13 for a COVID-safe scavenger hunt, activities, games, and INCREDIBLE giveaways – including gaming consoles, toys, and more! Families will also receive a prepaid gas card, yummy lunch, and supplies to participate in an at-home family activity the virtual workshops on the 14th.

    On February 14th families can participate in a Virtual Camp Program where we’ll have separate workshops for parents and youth, ending with our traditional Final Campfire where we will gather to express gratitude and hope for the coming year. Sign up for the virtual workshops that excite you the most – including yoga, cooking, specialty topic workshops, art classes, and more!
