Supporting Summer Camps

Your support can send a LGBTQ2S+ youth to summer camp!

Each Summer the Youth Project sends 150 Nova Scotian LGBTQ2S+ to summer camps across the province:

  • Camp Seahorse, for LGBTQ2S+ identifying youth
  • Camp Coyote, for trans-identifying youth
  • Camp Puffin, for LGBTQ2S+ identifying youth in Cape Breton

All three camps offer youth a camp experience unlike any other in Nova Scotia – one that is free from bullying, encourages a safe space, and offers campers the opportunity to connect with other LGBTQ2S+ youth and participate in a number of activities that you would expect at summer camp. From social support activities to fashion shows, queer-centered activities to swimming arts and crafts to scavenger hunts, Youth Project Summer Camps are a major summer highlight for many who would not otherwise have access to their LGBTQ2S+ peers during the summer months.

The Youth Project provides these summer camps at no cost to campers – with your help, we will be able to continue to offer this one-of-a-kind queer camp experience to youth across Nova Scotia.
