Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan is an educational, social, artistic and personal learning retreat for gender and sexually diverse youth (two spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) and allied youth.

The four-day camp is designed for youth between the ages of 14 and 24.

 

The camp is peer driven and jam-packed with drama, music, writing, visual art, empowerment and reflection exercises, anti-oppression work, personal growth opportunities, healthy socialization, and in-depth learning activities about specific youth topics and social issues.

 

Camp fYrefly is Canada's largest volunteer-based summer leadership retreat for gender and sexually diverse and allied youth.

 

The camp features day and evening workshops, with designated time set aside for personal reflection, community building, and social activities.

All workshops and guest speakers help youth to develop their very own fYrefly fuel designed to help them keep their inner light shining bright during dark times.
