Camp fYrefly

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.
