Present a workshop at camp!

Have some knowledge or a special skill you would like to teach our campers? We are looking for organizations, artists, activists, community leaders, and professionals to lead workshops focusing on various forms of leadership skill development. Workshops should be interactive, fun, and challenge campers to be more dynamic leaders.  If you are a great facilitator with a passion for developing LGBTQ+ youth leaders , send in a workshop proposal! Some examples of workshops can be found here.

Where is camp?

Camp is an hour outside of Downtown Los Angeles in the Angeles National Forest.


What should I expect?

Workshop presenters are volunteers who come to camp for a couple of hours on a select date to present a workshop to our campers. Camp is a rustic environment and a mostly electronics free zone for our campers. You will be responsible for transporting yourself to and from camp. We will NOT be able to house you at camp for any amount of time.


Will I be compensated for my travel or time?

No, this is a 100% volunteer commitment. Our presenters volunteer out of the goodness of their hearts and for the passion of developing the next generation of LGBTQ leaders.  We will shower you with gratitude!


What kind of workshop should I propose?

All workshops are an hour and a half long.  Workshops should be very interactive, focus on leadership skill development, and fun (if the topic allows). Workshops should be relevant to LGBTQ+ youth lives and needs.  We highly discourage lecture style workshops. Click here for examples.


Who will be my audience?

Your audience will be LGBTQ+ youth leaders, ages 12-20 and a few staff members.  You can expect 10 – 20 youth more or less per workshop.


What are the requirements?

  1. Volunteers must be 21+ years old.
  2. Proposal submitted and approved by Camp Brave Trails by May 15.
  3. Willing and able to commit to your presentation date.
  4. Ability to transport yourself to camp for your workshop.
  5. Agree to the Camp Brave Trails presenter contract and privacy agreement.
