Camp Born This Way

camp logo testCamp Born This Way is a 4 day/3 night camp for transgender and gender creative children and their families. Camp has traditionally served children ages 5-12 but in 2015 will add ages 13-16. Camp location is kept confidential and private so that families and kids feel safe to be themselves! If you are the parent of a transgender or gender creative child, or you know someone who is, please get in touch with us!

The Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation is the fiscal steward for CBTW and supports the efforts of the TransParents group and their project, Camp Born This Way.   Camp provides this opportunity with only a small registration fee to families. We need support in order to keep Camp accessible to all who would like to come.  To donate directly to Camp Born This Way, please click the link below.
