The Summer Camp for LGBT Kids, Where Your Bunkmate Won’t Call You a Fag

Aside from the set of bored looking young people at the beginning of this video, Philadelphia’s Mountain Meadow Summer Camp actually looks like a pretty dope place to spend part of those three warm months in between school years. Founded in 1981, Mountain Meadow is one of those places where LGBT 9-17-year-olds (or straight tweens and teens with LGBT families) can spend two weeks out of the summer, which organizers call a “safe haven” for kids who have two moms, two dads, or some mix there of.

Not only do we need more Mountain Meadow campus out there, we need more of them promoting themselves through the channels today’s kids interact with. Like YouTube. Because kids aren’t going to be impressed by your pamphlet any more.
