Brave Trails

Leadership Summer Camp For LGBTQ Youth & Allies


Services & Impact

Brave Trails is a nonprofit organization located in Southern California. Central to the organization’s purpose are our yearly summer camp sessions — one week for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and their allies and another week for children/youth of LGBTQ or non-traditional families. Brave Trails is a place for diverse youth who share common experiences to come together and form a community that is truly their own. In addition to typical camp activities, campers engage in age-appropriate workshops exploring identity, issues of oppression/privilege, youth coalition building, social justice, and more.  

Brave Trails is a 501(c)3 organization (EIN 46-4530883). Donations to the organization are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. Because our entire staff is volunteer, donations, grants, and other contributions allow Brave Trails to maintain accessibility, high-quality programming, and low costs for children, youth, and their families.
