Camp Aurora is Manitoba’s only LGBT2SQ+ youth summer camp and has now been running for ten years! Forty-eight campers aged 14-19, twelve Cabin Leaders, and a team of volunteers and staff spend several days at Variety's Camp Brereton in the beautiful Whiteshell Provincial Park, thanks to Variety, the Children’s Charity of Manitoba.
Camp Aurora offers the typical summer camp experience of outdoor activities, such as swimming, canoeing, and campfires, as well as identity-affirming, community building workshops in a positive and supportive environment. The talent show and dance are always highlights of Camp!
Camp Aurora is committed to providing a positive space for LGBT2SQ+ and allied youth to explore identity, make meaningful connections, and feel a sense of belonging.
Our hope is that you will meet some new friends, try some new things, learn about yourself and your community, and have fun along the way!
The 2017 camp will take place Sunday, August 27th - Wednesday, August 30th!
- Cabin Leader (formerly PYL) application forms will be available May 1st.
- Camper Registration forms will be available June 1st.
Support Camp Aurora during Pride!
Come to Club 200 before the Pride Parade on Sunday, June 4th, to enjoy a pancake breakfast and support the LGBT2SQ+ youth community. Youth from the Rainbow Resource Centre’s Youth Program, Peer Project for Youth, volunteer to plan and host the event! The event is free, although donations are graciously accepted and go towards supporting Camp Aurora!
Be a Cabin Leader!
If you are between the ages of 20 and 34, like working with youth, and have skills and experience that would be an asset to Camp Aurora, then you might be just who we're looking for! We need several Cabin Leader to help ensure that Camp Aurora runs smoothly.
