Trans Youth Camping Trip
Since 2010, we've taken young trans people on a weekend camping trip: an annual opportunity to take part in lots of fun activities and spend time with other young trans people. This is open to young trans people from the age of 11 – 24 years.
Camping Trip 2017
We are running two camping residential trips in summer 2017 for young trans people aged 11-24.
Camp 1: 18-21 August 2017 (with prep day on 1st of July)
Camp 2: 26-29 August 2017 (with prep day on 15th of July)
You must attend the camping trip prep day.
We will be prioritising young people who have not been before on a first come, first served basis.
BOOKING OPENS: 8 May 2017 at 8pm. More information will appear here soon.
Last year both camps were full one hour after booking opened.
Camping Trip 2016
In August 2016 we successfully raised £12,000 thanks to public donations at Crowdfunder.co.uk. Our 2016 fundraising campaign allowed us, for the first time, to run two camping trips.
What the young trans people thought about our camping trip:
"I learnt a lot and had so much fun for the first time in a long time. I didn't want to leave, it was like a little piece of paradise. I can't wait until the next one!" - Youth group member
"Camp was a place I could be myself, a place where I didn’t worry about gender or the world outside, a place to forget about my problems for 4 days" - Youth group member
"I really enjoyed archery, but what I liked best was just hanging out and chatting by the camp fire each night." - Youth group member
"It was muddy, but still fantastic!" - Youth group member
"I wish every day was camp!" - Youth group member
"I made some really good friends on camp and now feel less alone in the world.” - Youth group member
