OUTdoors! Camp History

OUTdoors! Camp began in 2008 in Prescott, AZ as a College Project of Kado Stewart (Camp Director). The first year 42 campers attended what would later be named Gay Camp by our campers. We have grown exponentially in the past 6 years and now accommodate 150+ campers per session, and 100 volunteers. We have grown to be the largest LGBTQ camp program in the country and work with agencies and youth from across the country, Canada, and Mexico! Each year we receive hundreds of applications from youth and volunteers eager to attend camp!
