Camp True Colors

Camp True Colors is a place designed just for LGBTQ+ youth, where you can have fun and enjoy summer camp activities in a welcoming environment, while building community with peers and adults with similar shared experiences.

Aside from being a LOT of fun, camp builds self-confidence, life skills, friendships, and memories that last long after the last campfire of the summer.


Camp True Colors has two main types of sessions:

  • Sessions open to all LGBTQ+ youth (including but not limited to those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, or queer)
  • Sessions specifically for youth who are transgender and/or nonbinary, or otherwise gender expansive

We also offer a leadership program (link to Leadership Program) for campers ages 16-17, and Family Camp True Colors (link to – Family Camp True Colors) for LGBTQ+ families.

Camp True Colors takes place at the One Heartland Center in Minnesota, but participants come from all over! We offer transportation for campers from the MSP airport as well as a Minneapolis bus stop.
