who we are
Camp Lifting Leaves is a partner project of the Ten Oaks Project and the child welfare agencies across Ontario. We have seen a growing need for connection and community building amongst children and youth from 2SLGBTQ+ communities who are in and out of care, and are thrilled to offer a camp just for them! The activities and programming offered at Camp Lifting Leaves will be similar to our other camp programs, and include time at the waterfront, arts and crafts, archery, high ropes and climbing, and social justice workshops.
who can attend?
Camp Lifting Leaves is for children and youth ages 8-21 from 2SLGBTQ+ communities who are in and out of care. Children and youth involved with Ontario child welfare agencies are welcome to attend. Each agency who has children and youth attending camp must provide one CAS staff member / volunteer for every four kids being sent to camp, as well as any staff members / volunteers needed for one-on-one support. These staff members / volunteers are responsible for the supervision, safety, and wellbeing of the children they are chaperoning 24/7.
