Camp Lilac is a summer camp in Ohio for transgender and gender diverse youth. Since 2017, we’ve been creating a safe space in which gender diversity is the norm. Our program is designed so that campers emerge with an increased sense of confidence in their identities and a strong community of peers and supporters. We believe our camp fills a crucial gap in the lives of trans and gender diverse youth, setting them on a path to success.
As a small nonprofit, we rely on camper tuition and individual donations to fund every aspect of camp, from space rental to food and activities. In addition to building a general scholarship fund for low-income campers, we’re also fundraising to support an array of team-building activities and unique camper experiences that will make 2020 our best year yet!
