The Queer and Trans Youth and Allies (QTYA) camp is a fun and welcoming opportunity for LGBTQAI2s+ youth and allies to be outside, connect with their peers, and be in a magical space of queer and trans joy. 

The QTYA Day Camp weaves together community building, nature connection, and expressive arts. The youth will make friends with other LGBTQAI2s+ youth and allies, building lasting relationships and a greater sense of community and belonging. Youth will also get opportunities to reflect on who they are and who they want to be all while enjoying the incredible, rich landscape of the outdoors.  


The QTYA camp staff all identify as LGBTQAI+ and our staff are trained to work with queer and trans youth. Additionally, our staff are CPR and First Aid-certified, skilled, and trained outdoor educators bringing years of experience working with youth in outdoor settings.

The staff to camper ratio for the QTYA camp will be no more than 1 to 12 (and closer to 1 to 5 with our amazing volunteers). All QTYA Camp staff and volunteers have been fingerprinted for background checks. 


LandPaths is actively committed to making camp accessible for all youth, regardless of socioeconomic inequities. We offer scholarships to 40% of our participants, with the goal that the camp is a true reflection of our diverse Sonoma County community.

Scholarships are limited and available based on need and availability.

*Filling out a scholarship application does not guarantee a scholarship. PLEASE wait for LandPaths’ staff to contact you with a scholarship approval before you register.
