A Day At Camp

Graphic: A Day At Camp: What can you expect on a typical day?

A typical day at camp will include so many exciting activities!

Three activity periods where campers can choose between traditional camp activities, (archery, swimming, hiking, field games, outdoor skills, etc.), Camp Beyond Binary specific activities (LGBTQ history, self/community care, theater, art, the art of Drag, social justice, and more), and camper led activities (nearly anything campers want to share with others such as games, sharing a skill, teaching ukulele, youth organizing, etc.).

Campers will also engage in smaller group sessions where youth will explore their connections with our camp values (justice, leadership, empathy, transformation and belonging) and develop deeper relationships with a group of 6-8 other campers and two adults.

All camp evening include activities such as campfires, all camp games, variety show, story telling, collaborative art, and more!

Sleeping Arrangements & Placements

Cabin Units: Accommodations are rustic cabin units, with 3-4 cabins per unit. Each cabin has bunkbeds and limited electricity (lights but no outlets). Cabins will contain 8-10 campers. Campers will be sorted into their units on the first day of camp, based on age. Younger campers will bunk together and older campers will bunk together. Staff will reside in cabins adjacent to the camper cabins within the units.

At Camp Beyond Binary we want everyone to feel comfortable in their sleeping space.  Cabins will be separated by age groups of 12-14 and 15-17. Most of our cabins will be all gender. We may be able to accommodate single gender cabins depending on demographics of campers and staff. Campers and counselors are housed in cabins by self-determined gender identity. We have physically accessible cabin space for those who need it. We will do our best to place youth in their preferred cabin type but cannot guarantee.

What Kind Of Food Will Be Served?

We offer healthy, filling options at every meal, as well as snacks throughout the day. We do our best to provide plenty of choices to meet everyone’s needs and likes. If you have special dietary needs please let us know and we will try to accommodate you (gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, allergies).
