And next on the summer camp heads up is Camp fYrefly taking place in Southern Alberta cities! Registration is opening soon so check their webpage often for updates!
Camp fYrefly is an educational, social, and personal leadership retreat for queer and trans youth. It focuses on building and nurturing leadership skills and personal resiliency in an effort to help 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.
Camp fYrefly is set-up the same as any youth summer camp, which means they provide accommodations, meals, activities, workshops, counselling support, and so much more! The schedule includes multiple, concurrent daily workshop sessions, large group activities including plenary sessions by special guests, free time, and structured time that allows Campers and their Youth Leaders to check-in and debrief with each other in small groups. They also host a talent showcase on the last night of camp, which over time has become the heart of their programming.
