Transgender / Gender Diverse Programs

Camp Programs

  • Virtual Camper Meet Ups

    In light of recent events and social distancing, we have chosen to continue to spread the Camp Laurel Spirit via online video support groups on Zoom. These will be held one a month for current and new transgender and gender diverse campers, ages 10-17, who are currently living in California. Each group will be facilitated by Camp Counselors who will lead campers in fun games and activities. Our Camp Social Worker will be on call to speak with any children who may need additional mental health support during these meet ups.

    Please contact Andrea for an online application.

  • Other Virtual Events

    Camp Laurel will host game nights and other activities virtually for transgender and gender diverse youth across the country. These events will create a safe, fun environment for youth searching for connection and community. Join us for Trivia, BINGO, Virtual Escape Rooms, and more! 

  • Visit our Upcoming Programs Page for a full schedule. Please contact Andrea if your child is interested in participating.
     

  • Family Camp

    Family Camp is 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. Parents and siblings will learn how to best support their transgender/gender diverse family members while also learning how to build healthy communication and trust. Here our families are free to experience all that camps have to offer in a safe and supportive environment! 

    For more information on on Family Camp, contact our Bilingual Outreach Coordinator Andrea or call 626-683-0800.

  • Day Events

      We will only host our in-person events once it is safe to do so. Please contact our Bilingual Outreach Coordinator Andrea with any questions.
