We are excited to offer this special week of day camp for LGBTQ+ youth, in partnership with Kaylee’s Kamp Foundation!

This inclusive, affirming camp will feature horsemanship activities like grooming, leading, and riding, creative arts & crafts, playtime & learning with our small farm animals, and more! LGBTQ+ staff and mentors will create a fun and empowering space for youth to make new friends, develop farm skills, and increase self-confidence. Youth ages 13 to 18 are welcome to apply.
Thanks to Kaylee’s Kamp Foundation, this program is free to attend. We know that summer camps can be a financial burden for some families and we are here to ease that burden and provide support for both families and inclusive programs.
Interested in volunteering? We are seeking LGBTQ+ mentors to help support this camp (and others). Must be 18+ to mentor, training provided. Contact Kara at volunteer@animalsasnaturaltherapy.org!
