Camp Details:

Our camp is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains just an hour south of Denver. The camp has 61 acres that offer a mix of alpine, prairie, and riparian ecosystems. There are trails to explore and plenty of space to create memories. Camp YS will give your child the opportunity to meet other LGBTQ kids like themselves in a safe environment, free of the judgments and expectations of the outside world. We are a community free of electronics like cell phones, so that campers are focused on interacting with one another in a natural setting. Our staff of committed counselors are dedicated to ensuring that your child has the time of their lives, focusing on the areas of independence, friendship, and belonging.

What you can expect for your child:

Making the choice to send your teenager to camp is one a big one. In a world that is increasingly dependent on making connections through cell phones and the internet, camp YS is a great way to help your child make a strong social connections with other kids their age. We strive to build a safe and supportive community that allows children to connect with each other on a deeper level.
