UBC’s CampOUT! is a grassroots, community-based outdoor summer camp held in the Vancouver area for queer, trans, two-spirit, and allied youth ages 14-21 from across BC. In affiliation with the University of British Columbia, the camp provides opportunities for these youth to develop leadership skills, build self-esteem, inspire each other, foster hope and resilience, and connect with resources to support their health and well-being (physical, mental, social, sexual, educational and spiritual). CampOUT! provides a supportive space for youth to “be themselves”.
The Youth Sexual Health Team organized the first ever UBC pilot camp for queer, trans, two-spirit and allied youth in British Columbia. CampOUT! is now a program of UBC’s Equity Office. For more information, please visit the CampOUT! website.
