I was listening to CBC radio today and I was very pleantly surprised to hear about Rainbow Camp , a camp designed specifically for queer youth and allies, and also kids with queer parents. I do believe that this is the very first year that the camp runs and the website is sort of threadbare, but it looks really cool.

The camp is for 13 to 17 year olds and I really wish I could go, but I can't this year and I will be too old next year!

What do y'all think of the camp?

It's in Ontario?! Wahoo! It's about time these camps get started. I think it's great that it's open to everyone, and is even geared towards children with queer parents. I really think it's about time these sorts of things get developed. I'm proud that Ontario is showing its inclusive side!

Oh, Coool! Sounds awesome! [Smile]
Totally agree with ya, Copper, in terms of it being about time more support/programs be put in for queer teens/teens with queer parents.
