Online Pride Camps for Middle & High School Students

UW-Green Bay is offering free, online Fall Pride Camps that are open to youth in grades 6-12 who are part of the LGBTQ+ population or an ally to the population. Camps are separated into middle school and high school groups so that the youth are surrounded by people their own age.  This online camp focuses on LGBTQ+ history and education, celebrating the diversity within the LGBTQ+ community regarding our history, art, music and media, and how to enhance community connections and advocacy while the campers are making new connections with others.
