Want to know more about Camp Emerald?
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.
*Please note that Vera Project is wheelchair accessible. We work to make camp a low-scent space, please refrain from using heavily scented products when coming to QTYMP events. We try to make camp and the showcase as accessible as possible to everyone, and encourage you to contact us with any accessibility needs or concerns.
