'Pride camps' for children are an emerging trend on college campuses
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is running “Pride Camps” for middle and high schoolers in June and July.
Campers are invited by the university to “build community with other LGBTQ+ and allies” their age.
The camps are “designed for students to socialize and learn with friends, gaining a deeper understanding of queer history, health topics and wellness,” according to the university’s advertisement page for the camps.
The middle school camps are for grades 6-8 (ages 10-13). The high school camps are for grades 9-12 (ages 14-18).
”The camp is led by Nicole Kurth, UW-Green Bay Pride Center Coordinator, and Pride Center student interns,” the middle and high school camp descriptions read.
Nicole Kurth received “an outstanding achievement award for helping to create a safer and more inclusive climate for LGBTQ+ people” from the University of Wisconsin System.
”Pride camps” for children are an emerging trend on college campuses. The University of Evansville in Indiana is set to run a weeklong “Pride Camp” from Sunday, June 18, to Saturday, June 24, for teenagers ages 13-17.
Campus Reform contacted Kurth and the university for comment. This story will be updated accordingly.
