What is Family Camp All About?

When our founders, Jess & Kayla, adopted their baby, they found that there aren't enough spaces for LGBTQ families to connect. Thus Brave Trails Family Camp was founded in 2017.

At Brave Trails Family Camp, we strive to create an experience that is a safe and welcoming for LGBTQ families to bond, build community, and have a ton of fun together!

There are lots of camp activities to choose from throughout the weekend or feel free to just kick back and relax. It's up to you! All ages and family members are welcome, even grandparents, friends, cousins, aunts & uncles. We welcome families that have LGBTQ+ parents and/or have LGBTQ+ children!

Come create life-long family memories with us!



We are so excited to partner with our friends at Camp Bob Waldorf to bring you a beautiful, exciting, and comfortable family camp experience. Our site offers tons of adventurous camp activities and a very convenient location that couldn't be easier to get to.

Brave Trails Family Camp is Located in Glendale, California.
