Virtual Camp 2022

Camp Dates: August 1- August 26, 2022

Camp Ten Trees is excited to announce our virtual summer camp for 2022! Camp will take place over the first four weeks of August and will happen Monday-Friday with about 4 hours of programming each day.

What will virtual camp look like?

The exact details of the schedule are still being put together, but you can count on spending time consistently with a cabin of people, exciting evening programs, fun free choice activities, thoughtful workshops, affinity groups, and most importantly community chill time where you can just meet others, vibe, and have a great time. Below are some examples of the types of items you might find on the camp schedule.

Free Choice Activities

Campers can explore fun activities that you might traditionally see at summer camp - but modified for virtual camp. Some examples might include: Arts and Crafts, Friendship Bracelets, and Gaming. Each camper will receive a care package of goodies and activities before the start of camp to make sure that they have the supplies to participate in as many of these free choices as possible.

Affinity Groups

These groups will be led by counselors of a given queer affinity. They are a great way to for campers to find other campers who share an affinity (e.g. lesbian, trans-masc, aromantic, gender expansive, etc.) and discuss what it means to be part of that affinity group.

Cabin Time

Campers will be led through activities by their cabin counselor(s) and will meet consistently with similar aged peers. This is a great opportunity to form close relationships with a core group of youth.

Evening Programs

Just like evening camps at in-person summer camp, we want all campers to get together to have fun and celebrate as a group. Examples of evening programs could include a variety show, a poetry slam, or even a dance party!

Camp Ten Trees is committed to maintaining financial accessibility for our campers. We will never turn a camper away for financial reasons. We offer sliding scale tuition and "Camperships" (camp scholarships) to make camp possible for everyone. We ask that you pay at the highest level that you can; tuition payments are vital to keeping our programs running and making camp accessible for all of our campers. Camp Ten Trees is a non-profit organization that is supported solely by donations, grant funding, and program fees. The sliding scale tuition rates for the 2022 Virtual Camp are $50-$150 USD per camper. 

Absolutely! If you would like to contribute to the Camper Scholarship Fund, please indicate that on your application form and a staff member will be in touch. Alternatively, you can make donations to Camp Ten Trees directly on our website by clicking here. If you have questions about receiving Camperships or making a donation to our Campership fund, please contact info@camptentrees.org.
