Queer Belonging Backpacking Adventure is a paid program from June 14th to June 30th. This program is for High School aged youth who identify as Queer, Trans, Black Indigenous and People of color. During the program, we will explore the themes of Queer belonging through community building, discussions, art, and outdoor adventures including backpacking, camping, and learning in nature. Participants will develop a deep sense of belonging within the affinity group and a connection to natural spaces. This program helps to create a safe space in which youth can connect on what it means to be QTBIPOC and learn how to advocate for more welcoming and inclusive spaces for all.


This program is for you if:

  • You are currently in high school.
  • You qualify for free or reduced lunch
  • You identify as a Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Queer, Trans, and Gender Non-binary folx. (Inclusion of folx who identify as mixed, you are still whole!)
  • You are interested in building skills and comfort in outdoor adventures. (You do not need to have experience camping or backpacking)
  • You are interested in discussions of what it means to find belonging in the outdoors.
  • You are interested in cultivating connection to people and natural spaces through hands-on learning with art, journaling, reading, and investigation.

Schedule & Time Commitments: June 14th - June 30th
