Support the Revolution

Camp Ten Trees relies on the generosity of volunteers, supporters, and community members to create safe and affirming spaces for LGBTQ+ youth and children from queer families to connect. Here are a variety of ways that you can support the mission.

Volunteer Your Time

Camp Ten Trees is a volunteer-run organization and we depend on our amazing volunteers to do the work that we do! If you’re interested in volunteering at our Summer Camp sessions, please complete the volunteer registration through the link below.

We would also love your support during the rest of the year! Check out year-round volunteering options and sign up for our volunteer newsletter through the link below.

Support Financially

Any and all donations help support the work that we do at Camp Ten Trees! Since our first year of Summer Camp in 2000, we have never turned away a camper for lack of funds. Financial support of our programs ensures we can keep this commitment to financial accessibility. Donations also contribute to sustaining our programs and even growing them! Give a one-time donation to Camp Ten Trees or become a recurring donor through the link below.

Spread the Word

Know someone in your life who could benefit from knowing about a Summer Camp program like Camp Ten Trees? Or someone who is looking for a life-changing volunteer opportunity in the LGBTQ+ community? Or someone who is interested in donating to a local LGBTQ+ youth program? Tell them about us! They can find us on social media (Facebook or Instagram) or subscribe to our newsletter.

Workplace Matching

Workplace giving is a vital part of our fundraising efforts, and we participate in a large number of employee giving programs.  Some of them allow their employees to make deductions directly from their paychecks, some match their employees’ donations, and some even pay Camp Ten Trees for hours volunteered by their employees!  A partial list of workplace giving programs we participate in is listed below.  If you don’t see your employer listed, please let us know, and we’ll make every effort to join their program.
