The campers participate in the usual activities, such as archery, hiking, canoeing, roasting marshmallows at the campfires and even jewelry making, but this is definitely a camp set apart from the rest.
Here the teens discuss LGBT issues and they participate in drama shows where they can dress in drag.
Camping.OUT, is a summer camp managed by the Triangle Foundation, and for those who need financial assistance there is a scholarship fund supported by organizations including the Matthew Shepard Foundation, Advocates for Youth and PFLAG.
