Camp fYrefly Alberta North is grateful to gather annually on Treaty 6 territory. The footsteps of diverse Indigenous peoples have marked this territory for thousands of years, including the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, and Nakota Sioux people. At Camp fYrefly we aspire for our work to acknowledge continuing colonial violence, honour the nation-to nation treaty relationship, and respect Indigenous knowledge and traditions.

Camp fYrefly began in 2004 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It originally started as a long weekend retreat designed to help empower sexual and gender minority youth before they went back to school in the fall, which for many youth was a time of much stress and anxiety. After that first Camp experience, we knew that we had created something truly special and magical. Camp fYrefly is now four jam-packed days filled with workshops, intergenerational mentorship opportunities, field trips, games and athletic activities, and one amazing artist-in-residence!
