Camp fyREfly is a 4-day residential style summer leadership retreat for sexual and gender minority youth who variously identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-identified, two-spirited, queer, and allied. It focuses on building and nurturing their leadership potential and personal resiliency in an effort to help them become agents for positive social change in their schools, families, faith groups, and communities. To our knowledge, Camp fYrefly is the largest youth leadership camp of its kind in Canada and the only one in the world affiliated with a major research university, which ensures for research-informed programming, sound pedagogical principles, and strong fiscal management. All Camp fYrefly programming is guided by input from youth and facilitated by trained professionals and youth workers in collaboration with a team of artists, dramatists, and community and youth leaders. The Camp, employing an arts-based educational philosophy, is jam-packed with dance, drama, music, writing, visual art, empowerment and reflection exercises, anti-oppression work, personal growth opportunities, healthy socialization, and in-depth learning activities about specific youth topics and social issues.
