GI Camps 2023 – Information

Camp Bookings 2023

Our summer camp booking is now open for one week from Monday 17th April. Please read the information below before booking via this link.

This year our camps will be:

Camps are at no cost to young people. However, donations are very welcome and will contribute to costs of future residentials.

This year booking will primarily be randomly allocated after the booking closes. We have 40 spaces available for both camps. 10 spaces will be reserved for people who have not been camping with us before, 10 people will be reserved for trans people of colour, and 10 spaces will be reserved for transfeminine young people.

We know that the past few years have been really hard and we would take everyone on camp if we could. This year we are asking everyone who attended both camps in 2021 and in 2022 to take a break from camp for one summer (you can still apply if you only attended camp one of these years). It doesn’t mean that you deserve camp any less. We think it’s really important that everyone has a chance to experience camp magic, so we want to allow space for people who haven’t been on camp yet.

You can join our other residentials over the next year though!

Plus other trips and projects announced later!

We know that finding out that you might not be able to join camp this year might be disappointing for many. That’s also why we wanted to let you know as soon as possible. If you’d like to speak to a youth worker about this, please get in touch. And let’s also keep you connected with everything else we are offering.

We are currently working hard to build even more residentials and other opportunities for young trans, non-binary and gender-questioning people across the UK.

If you have any worries, questions or concerns, please talk to a youth worker, or email us on: [email protected]
