2020 Camp Update
It is with great sadness that Gender Infinity has decided to cancel our family camp sessions this year due to COVID-19 and will reconvene the camp in 2021.
Our first priority is always the safety and well being of our Gender Infinity family. We have been working on some virtual activities and cannot wait to see all of our families and community soon.
Please remember that while we may not be able to see each other in person, we are always here for you!
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 expansive 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. Prior to the creation of this camp in November 2018 there was no established camp for gender expansive, transgender and intersex kids in the Southern United States. But now there is!
The camp will include transgender and gender-expansive children, their siblings (age 4-18) and adult family members. Children 12+ can attend by themselves and stay in a cabin with camp counselors. At least one primary caregiver must attend camp with children under 12. Cabins are climate controlled and sleep 12-14 each. Every cabin has its own bathroom and shower area. Children age 10+ will have the option of staying with their family or sleeping in a youth cabin (with parent approval, of course). Youth cabins will have at least two counselors. Family cabins will be shared and are gender-neutral.
Children ages 6 and older can participate in any of the scheduled activities. Children ages 4-5 can participate in some activities, but will require parent supervision. We will have some special programming just for parents.
