KKF Partnership Camps
This page is dedicated to those camps that have been approved as a Partnership Camp through a very thorough process. Each camp must fully align with the Mission and Vision of Kaylee's Kamp Foundation in order to be considered for our Partnership Program. Campers at these Partnership Camps are eligible to apply for our scholarships.
We welcome you to visit their websites to learn more about their amazing programs!
CampOUT is a non-profit organization and more than your average summer camp. Yes, it holds many components of your typical camp including canoes, archery, camp games, swimming, sports, arts & crafts, bonfires and more! What sets us apart from the rest is we focus on helping our campers do the most courageous thing possible, of being and loving their authentic self. Utilizing workshops, adventures, experiences, peer connections, and positive role models we can create an environment our youth can thrive. Where they can take the knowledge learned from camp to build their confidence and have the bravery to express themselves and be true to their brightest colors. This week long over night camp has youth ages 10-17 from all aspects of the rainbow and LGBTQ+ community. Including all genders, sexualities, allies, or children of queer families, all is welcomed and will be respected.
CampOUT is dedicated to improving the well-being and mental health of our campers by providing a safe space for experiences, adventure and authentic expression of self for LGBTQ+ youth and their allies. All are welcome and respected as we engage in community events to advocate for equality and combat the discrimination and lack of support that many LGBTQ+ youth may experience.
Brave Trails is a national non-profit organization dedicated to LGBTQ+ youth leadership. We offer accredited summer camps, backpacking trips, family camps, mental health services, meet-up groups, and year-round leadership programming. All of our programs focus on helping LGBTQ+ youth find what they need most to thrive: their people, their place, and their passion. Nothing makes us more proud than seeing our youth take the skills they gain in our programs and use them to create meaningful change in their communities.
The Spirit Pride Project (formerly Spiritual Pride Project), founded 2009 is a non-profit dedicated to the idea that LGBT2SIAQ+ young people deserve to know that who they are is valuable, powerful, and lovable. We use camp as a vehicle for a spirituality retreat through team-building, community-building, and identity-forming games, workshops, and activities. Our current program includes an annual summer-camp-style weekend retreat each spring.
