Each summer at Camp fYrefly Alberta, more than 80 youth and volunteers contribute to creating a space where sexual and gender minority youth are supported to develop their leadership skills and personal resiliency. With more than 50 youth and dozens of Adult Volunteers, we continually hear stories that speak to the positive impact Camp fYrefly can have on the lives of those who attend.
We have compiled a collection of testimonials from Campers and Youth Leaders, Adult Volunteers, Parents, and Donors of Camp fYrefly Participants and would love to share some of their positive experiences with you. While we could continue telling you about how wonderful the Camp fYrefly experience can be, we thought it would be better to let you read the words of former participants for yourself!
As one youth participant reminded us, "Camp fyrefly doesn't just change lives, it saves them." There's nothing better than hearing directly from youth who have attended Camp fYrefly. You can do so by checking out videos from Camp fYrefly on our YouTube page.
After the summer of 2011, one Camp participant wrote an indepth reflection about his experiences at Camp fYrefly. Please take a monent to read, first hand, the impact fYrefly had on this young man's journey of self-discovery. You can read his reflection here.
