The mission of Iowa Safe Schools' Pride Camp is to provide a safe and affirming place for LGBTQ & allied youth to learn valuable life skills and network with other LGBTQ youth in a supportive and nurturing environment. Pride Camp is an epic, life changing program for LGBTQ and allied youth to learn, grow, and connect with each other.
Pride Camp is not your typical gay camp, and is the first of it's kind in the Midwest to offer a safe space for students in an overnight, summer camp format.
It takes a community of people to make a positive impact on a LGBTQ student's life. We anticipate that approximately 50% of Pride Camp attendees will come to camp on a partial or full scholarship. Your contribution will help ensure that every student who wants to attend Pride Camp is able to do so, without worry of cost.
When you become a sponsor, you are paving the way for a LGBTQ or allied student to connect with a community of students and adults who believe that every identity is valued and should be celebrated. We want to make sure that students feel hear and supported. With your help, we can reduce the percentage of LGBTQ students who feel isolated and alone.
