Growing Strong Routes

A safe, relaxed, and fun-filled summer camp for transgender and gender non-conforming youth.


Summer camp fun…

This summer, Growing Routes is excited to be partnering with transgender and gender non-conforming mentors, professionals, and parent trans allies to offer an affordable week-long New England-based program designed to inspire joy and build community for young transgender and gender non-conforming youth (ages 6-8).

The Growing Strong Routes camp is a private, fun filled and relaxed program where kids can be themselves while surrounded by a community of peers. We will nurture a safe and exciting environment where kids can experience the simple joys of camp.

We are including transgender and gender non-conforming mentors, as well as professionals and parent trans allies as advisors as we develop programming.

We want to be sure camp is affordable for everyone and have been raising scholarship funds to subsidize the cost for those unable to pay the full amount. The cost of camp is on a sliding scale with the minimum cost $50 and the full cost $350. As funds are limited, please pay what you can. We welcome additional contributions to the scholarship fund!
