Fall Camp Announcement
It’s been a big year for Camp Ten Trees! We’ve moved to a new office, had some staff and board transitions and shifts in leadership structure, and hosted our first-ever Spring Camp (it was awesome)!
The Staff and Board of Camp Ten Trees think it is most wise to use our time and energy after Summer Camp to regroup and reorient ourselves and put effort into team building and maintaining integrity and sustainability in all of the work we do.
Fall Camp, which was planned for November 10-12, will be canceled this year. It would have been our first-ever Fall Camp, and we hope to make it a reality in the future.
In the meantime, we’ll be working on raising funds for another year of camp, and working to make our next Spring Camp and Summer Camp as great as they can be.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this time of transition and change. We feel it is a great honor to do the work we do and serve the incredible youth of Camp Ten Trees, and we’re committed to bringing our best selves to that work. Your support means so much to us.
Our Fall Camp is a weekend program (Fri-Sun) that is designed for youth within the LGBTQ+ community who are ages 8-17. In 2017, Fall Camp will be November 10-12. Check in will occur in an urban location, and youth will be transported to the camp site on the Camp Ten Trees bus. Throughout the weekend, campers will have the ability to participate in activities such as: archery, arts, basketball, boating, campfires, climbing walls, crafts, creative writing, dance, discussion groups, gaga ball, identity exploration, music, penguin plunge, poetry, theater, and more! Cabins are fully enclosed and heated. This is a great opportunity for youth to build community.
Fall Camp registration will be online and available in Summer 2017. Fall Camp registration will open in May 2017. You can get to the registration page by clicking HERE. The registration process takes between 15-45 minutes to complete. You will be prompted to upload some documents throughout the process. In order to get through the process quicker, you should have the following information nearby: regularly taken medication information, immunization records, copy of medical insurance cards (if applicable), and copy of individual education plan (if applicable).
Fall Camp volunteer information will be posted in May of 2017. Volunteers must commit to being present for an entire Thu-Sun weekend.
