Who We Are
Camp Ten Oaks is a one-week, sleep-away camp for children and youth ages 8-17 from LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirit, queer) identities, families and communities. The program first opened its doors in August 2005. Now, it’s at capacity with 72 campers each summer.
The intentional magic of summer camp
EMPOWERMENT THROUGH PLAY
Camp Ten Oaks is the first and only summer camp of its kind in Canada. We offer children a space where they can feel not only accepted, but celebrated. For many campers, our program is the cornerstone of their year.
Our programming variety allows campers to receive instruction, strengthen old skills and develop new ones with the option to participate in outdoor adventure, waterfront, arts, social justice activities and sports. We empower children and youth through play that enhances self-esteem, life skills, independence, leadership and self-confidence.
