General

  • Mission:
  • Ten Oaks Project and more specifically Camp Ten Oaks is a one week sleep away camp for children and youth ages 8-17 from LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirited, queer) identities, families and communities. The program first opened its doors in August 2005 and now it accommodates 72 campers each summer at its capacity. We have a huge waiting list as this is the ONLY summer camp of its kind in Canada!

  • Overview:
  • Ten Oaks is a charitable, volunteer-driven organization that engages and connects children and youth from LGBTQ+ families, identities and communities. It is based in Ottawa and was founded in 2004. The Camp started in 2005. This program partners with many services and programs offering education, support and counselling for youth and children of LGBTQ+ identified families. We believe in empowerment through play, learning by doing and social justice and meets the needs of these children and youth. Our work is inspired by camp and grounded in social justice as we strive to create SAFER spaces and assist these children to grow in positive peer networks.

  • History:
  • Founded in Ottawa in 2004 in response to a great need to assist children and families of LGBTQ+. To provide education and awareness to help make for safer and more accepting communities. The camp was purchased and built in
    2005 and accepts children and youth from families of LGBTQ+ or children who identify as LGBTQ+. There is an application process and accepts those who meet the criteria.
