Proud To Be Me Camp brings LGBTQ+ families together to build community and experience the outdoors in a supportive environment. Enjoy camp activities, share meals served by Camp Sealth staff, and explore personal expression at this fun weekend camp!

Attend for the whole weekend or for Saturday only! We offer flexibility for families who want to camp out in a cabin and stay for the whole weekend, or just attend for the Saturday activities (9am to 8pm).

Who can attend?

Youth of all ages are welcome to attend with parents, grandparents, extended family, or chosen family – it’s up to you! Activities are designed for youth ages 5 and older but all ages are welcome. Youth must be accompanied by an adult.

Meals and Accommodations

Stay in heated camp-style cabins; if attending with friends or family, you may request to stay in nearby or adjoining cabins. All meals are provided during the weekend, and snacks, coffee, and tea are also available. Nearly all special diets can be accommodated. Learn more about our sleeping accommodations and food service.

Activities

This weekend gives a designated space for queer-identifying or questioning youth to build community at Sealth. The weekend will offer staff facilitated and supervised discussions around identity and queer history, along with the same classic camp favorites of archery, arts & crafts, and more!

Activity options include reflection walks, creative self-expression, silly field games, arts & crafts, archery, rainbow art, and more! Participants can choose their activities and set their own schedule for the weekend.

LGBTQIA2S+ & Relationships at Camp

We welcome children and youth who identify as LGBTQIA2S+ and from LGBTQIA2S+ families. They are a part of our camp community, which we strive to make a safe environment for everyone. While romantic relationships are not allowed or encouraged as part of the camp experience, we do encourage everyone to be able to talk openly about themselves, their personal identity, and their family. We do not talk about the mechanics of sex or anatomy; we talk about sexuality as part of someone’s identity. Our staff are trained in how to have or facilitate age-appropriate conversations in a way that makes everyone feel comfortable and included, without making judgments or creating an uncomfortable environment.
