Virtual Camp Coyote 2020
After thorough consultation with our staff, Youth Board, and Board, we have decided to host our summer camps digitally. We understand that this may feel disappointing for many, as we understand how important and exciting camp can be. This decision comes from a place of deep care for you, our volunteers, and our staff; we want to make sure that everyone feels as safe as possible and that we all work to reduce any spreading of COVID-19. We agree that sleeping in small cabins and facilitating activities with 50+ youth from all over the province is too high risk for us and also currently violates Nova Scotia Health Authority guidelines.
Although camp will look a lot different this year, we are thrilled to bring our creative gay sparkle and pizazz into creating an online space that celebrates you, builds space for meaningful connection, and is full of magic.
Camp Coyote will happen on Zoom Saturday, August 1st - Monday, August 3rd. We will be offering a concentration of workshops, events, activities, and some fun surprises! Usually camp is for people under 20, but due to our online forum, the difficulty in confirming ages of participants, and the importance of community right now - we are now accepting registration from anyone 25 and under.
This year we are reserving 5 spots for Two Spirit, queer, and/or trans Black, Indigenous youth of colour and Two Spirit, queer, and/or trans racialized youth (2SQTBIPOC identified youth), i f you would like to reserve one of these spots please email our Programming Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although we have funders, we still rely on the generosity and care of our community in order to continue providing the crucial programs and services we offer to queer and trans youth like our camp programs. If you have capacity to donate to camp to pay facilitators, artists, and help supplement materials cost please click HERE.
A special thank you to all of the 2020 Youth Project Auction Supporters for making camp possible.
Your donations help to make Nova Scotia a safer, happier, and healthier place for LGBTQ youth!
Registration is now closed.
