Camp Lifting Leaves is a partner project of the Ten Oaks Project and Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario. We have seen a growing need for connection and community building amongst children and youth ages 8-21 from 2SLGBTQ+ communities who are in and out of care, and are thrilled to offer a camp just for them!
