Camp Emerald is a music & empowerment summer camp for queer, trans, gender-variant and gender non-conforming youth. At this week-long day program, campers ages 13 — 20 years old can learn a new instrument, form a band, and attend workshops on music, relationships, queer history, self-defense, screen-printing, and much more. No music experience necessary!
Camp Emerald is organized by the Queer & Trans Youth Music Project, and staffed by volunteer instrument instructors, band coaches & managers, workshop facilitators, and more. Campers can expect to meet other queer, trans, gender-variant, gender non-conforming folks of all ages, as we build community together during the week. The camp culminates in a final showcase at the Vera Project, where camper bands perform their original song for a room of cheering fans, family, and friends old and new.
