Camp fYrefly

Camp fYrefly is a fun, educational, social, and personal leadership retreat for queer and trans youth ages 14 - 24. Campers explore their identity, build resilience, enhance self esteem, and develop leadership skills that will positively impact their lives, homes, schools, and communities. Workshops, mental health support, art programming, and community building, are just some examples of what to expect! Check out the Program pages for more information or the location nearest you to apply.

Hello campers, volunteers, parents, guardians and friends,

With the health and safety of everyone in mind, our teams are considering options for summer 2021. As soon as we have updates we will post them here and on each location page. Please reach out to us at fyrefly@ualberta.ca with any questions or concerns.
