Gender Infinity Family Camp
November 9-11, 2018
Why this Camp was Created
There are many benefits to the camp experience, from getting outdoors and making new friends to growing more independent and becoming more confident. But many transgender and gender non-conforming kids do not have this opportunity. The transgender community is under attack and none more so than gender creative youth and the families who support them. With the advent of bathroom bills, social media attacks, bullying and society’s general misunderstanding of what it means to be transgender most trans kiddos cannot safely attend camp.
This is why camps specially designed for these children are so important. At these camps, children can just be children and have fun. Unfortunately, there are no established camps for gender creative and transgender kids in the Southern United States. This is why we are holding the first Gender Infinity Family Camp this November!!!
When, Where and Who
This first camp will take place the weekend of November 9-11, 2018 and is being held at an established camp between Austin and Houston (the location is being kept private for safety reasons and will be released to families who register).
The camp will include gender creative children and their siblings (ages 3-18) and adult family members. Since this is a family camp at least one parent/primary caregiver must attend along with their children.
The cabins are climate controlled and sleep 15 people each . Every cabin has its own bathroom and shower area. Children age 8 and over will have the option of staying with their family or sleeping in a youth cabin (with parent approval of course). Youth cabins will have two counselors. Family cabins will be shared (we will try our best to accommodate requests for families who wish to stay together). All cabins will be gender neutral.
What Will We Do?
The camp will include all the things you hope for when you think of camp: fishing, canoeing, crafts, horseback riding, games, obstacle courses and a campfire with smores. We also have a few special surprises planned for everyone!!!
Children ages 6 and older can participate in any of the scheduled activities. Children ages 3-5 can participate in some activities, but will require parent supervision.
We will have some special programming just for parents.
The camp registration fees covers housing, all meals/snacks/beverages and programming (families must arrange for transportation and bring their own bedding and toiletries).
Registration will open soon.

Sponsor a Camper and Keep Camp Affordable
Many families that most need the support and reprieve offered by a camp of this sort cannot afford it. We need your help to sponsor children who would not otherwise be able to attend and keep the cost of camp reasonable.
To keep this camp affordable we are asking families to consider a donation to either:
- The General Camp Budget
- Sponsor a Camper
