Type of CourseRecorded Webinar
$20 Member; $40 Nonmember
The camp experience produces many positive outcomes for children--- self-identity, self-worth, self-esteem, leadership, along with growth in personal skills and competencies. The camp community allows children to develop positive relationships with peers and adults, and it provides them numerous experiential learning opportunities. Camp helps children grow by providing a supervised, positive environment that has safety as its primary commitment.
In this webinar, we’ll learn how transgender youth and staff can experience those outcomes listed above at your camp through your programming. Join us for a level-setting conversation influenced by media trends and defining the “why” for inclusive practice at camp. Together, we will work to build the foundation of first practical steps in creating a foundation for trans* inclusion at camp and attendees will leave with a greater understanding of the trans experience at camp.
