Camp fYrefly began in 2004 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It originally started as a long weekend retreat designed to help empower sexual and gender minority youth before they went back to school in the fall, which for many youth was a time of much stress and anxiety. After that first Camp experience, we knew that we had created something truly special and magical. Camp fYrefly is now four jam-packed days filled with workshops, intergenerational mentorship opportunities, field trips, games and athletic activities, and one amazing artist-in-residence!
