Camp Aurora!

Postby CaptainGay » Tue Jul 17, 2007 12:16 pm


I am messaging you about an amazing opportunity for youth ages 14 to 21 living in and around Winnipeg, Manitoba called Camp Aurora.

Camp Aurora is a four day sleep-away camp that focuses on building and nurturing the leadership potential and resiliency of LGBTT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans-identified, and Two-Spirit) and allied youth in an effort to help them learn how to make significant contributions to their school, community, and home environments. Trained educators and peer youth workers will facilitate workshops and events at the camp. We will be offering a wide range of powerful youth-focused workshops and creative skill-building and self-esteem enhancing activities.

The camp, the first of its kind in Manitoba, is scheduled to take place this summer at Camp Manitou from August 27-30. We are now accepting registrations for Camp Aurora and help is needed to spread the word to interested youth. This year we have room for 35 youth and are encouraging all youth to apply as soon as possible before spots fill up!

Registration packages can be picked up at the Rainbow Resource Centre in Osborne Village or outside the Rainbow Pride Mosaic at the University of Manitoba. You can also e-mail the Camp Aurora Steering Committee for a registration package at

Camp Aurora requests a minimum $25.00 registration fee, which reflects a greatly subsidized rate designed to enable all interested youth to attend. Actual camp costs are in excess of $250.00 per youth. As a result, we encourage those youth and families who can afford any additional contribution to consider donating to assist the camp. However, no youth will be turned away because of financial need. Camp Aurora is also still accepting donations, sponsorships, and any fundraising opportunities.

You can visit us on the web for more information at: or on our new Facebook group at:

If you're interested in getting involved with Camp Aurora as a volunteer or staying updated on the progress, please send an e-mail to and we'll add you to one of our confidential listservs.

Did anyone do the Lifeguarding course which Camp America offered last year? How was it... Im thinking of doing it next year, but Im unsure... Was it intense? What did you have to do?
