Workshop Application
Hello!

Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan is a volunteer-run leadership camp designed for LGBTQ2S (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and Two Spirit) and allied youth between the ages of 14 and 24 and will be held online on Thursday, August 12th to Sunday, August 15th, 2021.

The camp is an educational, social, artistic, and personal learning retreat. It focuses on building and nurturing youth leadership potential and personal resiliency in an effort to help youth learn how to make significant contributions to their own lives and to their schools, home/group-home environments, and communities. Camp fYrefly is peer driven and 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. The camp this year will be virtual, due to COVID restrictions, and will feature daytime workshops, with designated time set aside for personal reflection, community building, and virtual social activities.

We are looking for individuals to help work with our campers by leading morning or afternoon workshops during camp on the themes of creating community, empowering youth, learning and leadership and personal development. We seek individuals who have experience in recognizing how challenging adolescence can be for all youth, and perhaps especially for youth who are coming out and coming-to-terms with their sexual or gender identity. We strive to empower campers to envision a healthy and happy future free from fear, abuse, and discrimination. One of the ways this is done is through engaging and interactive workshops where they can explore and develop strategies for success. Camp fYrefly exists because caring adults believe that all youth are entitled to a world that embraces and encourages diversity rather than fearing it.

If this sounds like something you're interested in, please fill out the following questions! We look forward to hearing from you.

Application deadline is July 9, 2021.
