We know that having a loving and connected home makes a vast difference in the lives of LGBTQ+ youth and their loved ones. Our family camp is designed to bring families closer together, connect families with others who share similar experiences, and build memories to last a lifetime.

Our mission is to build the next generation of LGBTQ+ leaders.

Every day LGBTQ+ youth see too many examples of how the world is not working for them, so what happens when we show them what the world could look like?

This is where we come in! At Camp Brave Trails, we create an environment that our campers can thrive in, without the fear of having to explain their identity or the risk of being othered. We give our campers supportive adult mentors, lifelong friends, leadership training, and of course, tons of fun! We like to think of it as filling the gaps of needs that many of our campers are not able to access in their communities.

It’s not wonder that the most common word campers use to describe us is “home”. We create a family at camp where every campers is loved and accept for exactly who they are.
