Best LGBTQ Friendly Camps in America

Among the Best LGBTQ Friendly Camps in America

Quinebarge is a traditional, coed sleepaway camp for fun, friendship, and personal growth. Founded in 1936 and located on idyllic Lake Kanasatka in Moultonborough, New Hampshire, Quinebarge is a true throwback for children ages 6-16. We are dedicated not only to providing a premiere camp experience, but to welcome all campers, including those in the LGBTQ+ community. We are considered among the best LGBTQ friendly camps in America, with a deeply inclusive community, and a program that is personalized to your child’s needs

Where Every Camper Can Be Themself

For all of our campers, Quinebarge is a place where every child can thrive and be their true self. This is especially important to us with regards to our LGBTQ campers and staff. We accept campers and staff regardless of their gender expression, and are committed to placing those individuals in cabins that most closely align with their gender identity. Additionally, in order to best respect each individual’s privacy, our Directors consider information relating to gender identity to be private and confidential. Such information is only shared with critical staff (our nurse, directors, and a child’s cabin counselor), except with an individual’s permission. Please read our full gender inclusion policy here

Forging Connections to Last a Lifetime

Of all the things we offer our campers – fun, kindness, acceptance, adventure, personal growth, connection to nature, and more – one of the most important is friendship. Our community is made up of children and adults from all walks of life and all corners of the globe. By putting kindness and friendship first, we are able to help all campers feel a sense of belonging, while making friendships that will last throughout their lives.
