Gendered Intelligence go camping!

As summer approaches and the weather heats up in Britain, summer residentials are kicking off. Usually these programs for children are segregated by sex, putting transgender youth in awkward positions and limited options for social interaction during the season.

We combat that as we have in years previous with a trans youth summer camping residential. The programme includes everything from kayaking to raft building as well as informal games and social interacting that help trans youth gain important personal and outdoor skills. Most residentials are gender segragated, which makes life difficult for trans youth. Our residential provides a safe space for all gender identities expressed by our young people. 

We've had over 20 youth sign up and 10 on our waiting list and not every trans youth can afford to attend.

We want to ensure that everyone of our young members who wishes to go on the camping trip gets to go.


I really enjoyed being part of this physical project. I most enjoyed the swimming session. I can’t swim but the instructor gave me a lot of attention and said that I had potential, which was really encouraging.” Young trans man


I only feel safe doing physical activities with other young trans people, or trans people, I wouldn’t feel comfortable at the moment doing any sport with other young people.” Young female-to-male trans person, aged 21.

Please donate to our campaign to help us make this a reality for trans youth.

It costs:

£52 each person to camp
£20 each to take part in activities
£60 each to cover staff costs
£32 each to cover volunteers' expenses
£32 each for food
£28 each for getting there
