A new one-week day-camp program for LGBTQ+ children and allies entering grades 6-12.
Imagine all of the joy and fun of summer camp—the swimming, arts, sports, day trips and more—in an environment that offers safety, freedom, and support to LGBTQ+ campers.
Camp Pride brings the best of 92Y’s renowned programs and faculty to the great outdoors, at our 50-acre campgrounds in Rockland County—just 20 minutes from NYC. Round-trip transportation is provided. Camp Pride offers the traditional components of summer camp, coupled with exclusive activities with guest LGBTQ+ artists, musicians, and activists to encourage campers to express themselves and feel affirmed.
Camp Pride has been developed in collaboration with organizations with expertise in LGBTQ+ youth, including Camp Ga’avah, Camp Highlight, and Keshet, and is a rare and welcome opportunity for families in the tri-state area.
