Volunteer CAMP MULBERRY

RESIDENT CAMP PROGRAMS

  • Summer Session 2024: June 21 - June 29, 2024

    The Laurel Foundation’s Camp Mulberry is the nation’s first free resident camp program specifically for transgender youth ages 6-17. The program is based on traditional camp programs, yet caters to the unique mental and physical health of transgender and gender-diverse youth. Camp Mulberry’s program empowers transgender youth in a gender-affirming environment, filled with volunteer role models. Our mission-driven program seeks to grow our youth into confident and independent young adults!

    This year we have made some big changes to help make camp more accessible to volunteers from all over the country.

    Starting January 2024, are incorporating online training, which can be completed at your own time but before June 19, 2024. There will then be one day of in-person training in Pasadena,( the day before camp) – on June 21, 2024, and then one day of training during pre-camp in Big Bear Lake, CA on June 22, 2024. Camp session follows from June 23-29, 2024.

    We hope this change will allow more volunteers the opportunity to be a part of The Laurel Foundation’s summer camp programs.

    TRAINING DATES: June 21-22, 2024.

    Camp Mulberry 2024 volunteer camp dates are June 21 (Pasadena) and June 22- 29, 2024 (Big Bear Lake).
