Connecting, Supporting, & Empowering LGBTQ Families in the DMV

Kids' Camp

Whether your 2 1/2 years old or 18 years old, your child will have fun, make friends, and leave as proud of their family as ever before.

Please Note: Children under 2.5 years of age may be with their parents in workshops and we will have a "quiet room" where parents may hang out with their children. Though we will not be providing any baby-sitting service, you are welcome to bring your own baby sitter.

KIDS' CAMP: Ages 2.5 years old through elementary school age.

Kids’ Camp at this year’s conference will be broken into three groups by age with various types of activities. Each group will be led by professional staff. In addition to these early childhood care professionals, we will have activities for each group will be age-appropriate and will be led by energetic volunteers and a group of outstanding activity providers from some of the best programs throughout the DMV. 

Kids' Camp Activities by Groups:  

  • Preschool age (2.5-4 Years Old) - Activities may include arts and crafts, singing, story time, movement, yoga and balance, and more.
  • Kindergarten through 3rd Grades (5-8 Years Old) - Activities may include arts and crafts, theatre exercises, yoga, animation stations, and more.
  • 4th & 5th Grades (9-11 Years Old) - Activities may include outdoor games and sports (weather permitting - otherwise held in the gym), theatre exercises, self-defense workshop, animation stations, and more.
We know your children will have a fun day, make new friends, and leave with a new feeling of pride in their families, and maybe even be a little bit tired!

More information about our amazing Kids' Camp activities will be provided as we get closer to the conference!


TEEN VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: Middle and high school ages.

In several school districts in the DMV, community service hours are a high school graduation requirement for many students. Therefore, we are excited to offer older teens the opportunity to volunteer at the conference.  One of the primary activities will be assisting as Peer Leaders in the Kids' Camp classrooms where you will assist children throughout the day and support the childcare professionals and staff from one of many activity providers. Your biggest role that you will fill as a volunteer will be achieved just by virtue of your presence and being who you are. As a Peer Leader, you will be a role model for your younger peers and empower them knowing you come from a family similar to their own!
