Hello campers, volunteers, parents, guardians and friends,

With the health and safety of everyone in mind, we have made the difficult decision to adapt our Camp fYrefly plans for this year. All sites are working hard to connect remotely this summer! Check application pages to learn more.

Camp fYrefly is an educational, social, and personal leadership retreat for queer and trans youth. It focuses on building and nurturing their leadership skills and personal resiliency in an effort to help them learn how to make significant contributions to their own lives and to their schools, home/group-home environments, and communities. Camp is designed for queer and trans youth between the ages of 14 and 24.

Participating in Camp fYrefly is a powerful and unique experience. Campers participate in activities that challenge youth to explore their identity, build resilience, and enhance self- and social-esteem. Camp is designed to help motivate participants to become leaders in their own communities, thereby passing on their leadership skills to the youth that come after them.
