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.

Camp Ten Trees was one of the first of its kind in the world and still offers the Pacific Northwest’s only residential summer camp programming for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and their allies and for children/youth of LGBTQ or non-traditional families.

Camp Ten Trees is a nonprofit residential camp in Washington State. Camp Ten Trees was founded in 2000 by four co-directors and offered its first summer camp session in August 2001, serving just 20 campers.  Since that time, we have served campers from throughout the United States and beyond. Camp Ten Trees is a place for diverse youth who share common experiences to come together and form a community that is truly their own.  In addition to traditional camp activities like swimming, archery, and nature hikes, campers engage in age-appropriate workshops exploring identity, issues of oppression/privilege, youth coalition building, social justice, and more.

​Camp Lilac is an overnight summer camp for transgender and gender diverse youth. Trans youth often face stressful, unwelcoming, and even hostile environments in their day to day lives, and depression, anxiety, and suicide are much higher among them. Since 2017, we’ve been creating a safe, welcoming, and confidential space in which gender diversity is the norm. Our program is designed so that campers emerge with an increased sense of confidence in their identities and a strong community of peers and supporters. We believe our camp fills a crucial gap in the lives of trans and gender diverse youth, setting them on a path to success. 

Camp Indigo Point is a 2-week residential summer camp for youth entering grades 2nd-11th. We believe that LGBTQ+ youth deserve a place and environment made specifically for them in community and safety with LGBTQ+ adults to thrive as kids: have fun, build lasting friendships, take risks, and build joy. 

Values:
Equity— CIP recognizes that LGBTQ+ campers embody a variety of intersecting identities and aims to provide each camper with the specific and unique tools they need to feel acknowledged, valued, and secure.

Community—CIP is founded by LGBTQ+ and adjacent adults fostering an environment for LGBTQ+ youth to thrive and connect. 

Affirmation— CIP strives to create a space where all campers’ and staffs’ identities and queer journeys are supported
