kin·dom camp is an opportunity for LBGTQIA+ youth ages 12-17 to experience a week of camp where they are safe and free to show up as their full selves.

Join us at kin·dom camp for a life-changing week on the shores of Lake Tahoe. At kin·dom camp, you will have the chance to experience all the joys that camp has to offer in a week filled with affirmation, celebration, and FUN!

This camp is affirming. Full stop. It affirms all genders, sexualities,  identities, religious backgrounds and varieties of belief. The only thing we expect is a commitment to welcoming and celebrating everyone where they are, as they are. 

At kin·dom camp, you will:

This year’s theme encourages our campers to use their voice and take pride in who they are.

The word “kin•dom” offers a new way of imagining the full inclusion and belonging of all people. It is a word that offers an alternative to “kingdom” and allows a more expansive view of how we are all connected. It moves beyond dynamics of power and oppression, and invites us all to see the ways we are interconnected and made better together. The word was originally brought forth by theologian Ada Maria Isasi Diaz, who used the word to speak about the liberation that God hoped for all people. This camp is a direct part of kin-dom community, and there is no greater vision we can imagine for LBGTQIA+ youth than for them to know that they belong, that they are loved, and that they are free and safe to be their whole selves.

kin•dom is a queer-led spiritual community. That being said, we recognize the pain and hurt that the church has caused many members of the LGBTQIA+ community. kin•dom works to dismantle prejudices within the church and begin to heal the harm done. While we are a spiritual community, camp is a space where faith-related activities are opt-in only. There is no expectation of faith, and we don’t want faith (or unbelief) to be a barrier. The only thing we expect is a commitment to welcoming and celebrating everyone where they are,  as they are. This camp is affirming. Full stop. It affirms all genders, sexualities, identities, religious backgrounds and varieties of belief.

Now more than ever, there are LGBTQIA+ youth who are in need of unconditional love and acceptance. kin•dom camp will be a week for LGBTQIA+ youth to experience belonging and affirmation. kin•dom camp will include plenty of “traditional” camp activities and recreation, plus some specialized programming to incorporate activities and conversations around mental health, yoga and embodiment, and LGBTQIA+ history and culture.

PCUSA RAINBOW – Geneva Presbyterian ChurchAt Zephyr Point Youth Camps, we aspire to create a sacred space where all campers can learn, grow, and thrive in a safe and inclusive environment. We welcome and celebrate the diverse identities and experiences of young people and strive to facilitate an equitable camp experience for youth of all gender identities or expressions, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, religious or non-religious backgrounds, abilities or disabilities, and family compositions.

kin•dom community is a queer-led spiritual community. Inspired by the concept first named by theologian Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, “kin•dom” is the full inclusion and relationship of all of God’s people. kin·dom community’s mission is to be an intentional, brave space for all people to explore and cultivate spirituality. The vision of kin·dom is to be an example of what is possible when all people are seen, heard, and nurtured; when all people bring their whole selves; when all questions are celebrated as much as answers; and when inclusion, integration, and love are the norm.
