Summer Trans Youth Camp Residential 2019
⛺️Dates for camp for 11-17 year olds: Friday 2nd - Mon 5th August
⛺️There will be no camp this year for young people aged 18+.
⛺️Young people aged 18+ are welcome to apply for the Training Course for Residential Workers in June. Applications open tomorrow.
More information on our decision to not run an 18+ camp this year from our Youth Work team:
Last year we celebrated GI's 10 year anniversary with a week long Super Camp for 18-25 year olds. We learnt a lot about ourselves, our community and about camp. Super Camp was the result of 2 years of intensive planning. It was beautiful and exhausting. One of the things that came out of Super Camp was our team's desire for more training and we know in the long-term this will support all our young people, too. That is why this year we have made the hard decision to run a workers training course and an unders camp, with no camp for our 18+ young people. It wasn't an easy decision to make. But we think you'll be OK. We remember the support and love you showed one another on Super Camp, as well as your determination and resourcefulness. So our hope for you this year is that, rather than feel dissapointed that we will not be camping with you, you will self-organise. Dig out those numbers from last summer, get in touch with the people you met on Super Camp, reach out to those who weren't there, and plan Camping trips of your own. On Super Camp we talked about sending more love out into the world and creating more change, 2019 is your year to make it happen - for the world and for yourselves.
We hope to see some of you on the training course and at various Pride events this summer. Take care of yourselves and each other,
Finn & the Youth Work Team
Training course for youth camp residential workers
We are looking for trans, gender variant and non-binary identified applicants who wish to attend a 2-day training course to be a Gendered Intelligence Residential Worker.
We are also looking for trans, gender variant and non-binary identified people who would like to volunteer to work as Youth Work Volunteers on a GI camp. In addition, we are also looking for people who are keen to take on Catering or Maintenance roles on camp.
The training course will prepare you to be a volunteer on a GI camp this year or in the future.
We will not be charging people to attend the course. You will need to successfully complete this training to volunteer on a GI camp in 2019, 2020 or 2021. This means you can apply to come on the training this year even if you can’t work the 2019 camp. You may also wish to attend the course even if you cannot commit to volunteering on a GI camp.
The training course will be for youth work volunteers, as well as volunteers with practical responsibilities.
Training Course: Thursday 6th – Friday 7th June
Fill in an application form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Sunday 31st March. You will hear back from us about whether you have a space on the training course on the 5th April.
