>> This campaign has been extended beyond May 15th...your contributions will be gladly accepted to enable even more individuals to attend this unique camp experience. Thank you! 

Thank you for taking a moment to learn more about our RDC Summer Camp Scholarship Fund.

This four day camp is open to all age groups, all races, ethnicities, orientations, and gender identities. The camp is a place to have fun, to share with a wide range of others, to learn and grow, to explore and to connect. This camp entails many activities and workshops like hiking, Self Empowerment, swimming and LGBT Identity. 

Imagine with your generous donation, we can create the following possibilties and so much more:

  • A group of children sit in a comfortable circle and discuss a time when they felt afraid to express who they are. They share openly if they overcame it, and if New friendships and a sense of self -confidence is born. 
  • A guest speaker talks in a small group setting about what it means to be Transgender, what some of the issues and concerns are for TG individuals and for that specific community going forward. Campers sit intently, and ask many questions re. a subject they perhaps misunderstood before. 
  • Campers are creatively adding to a "Diversitree" craft project using yarn and paint and markers as a symbol of the beauty within our diversity. A feeling of connectedness, of respect and love for others, of one-world community, is felt by all. 
  • Campers are gathered around a warm, brilliant campfire under the stars to sing inspiring songs to guitar music, roast marshmellows, laugh and share with one another. A sense of commonality, of friendship, of hope and strength, is felt by all. 

This is where you come in!

YOU CAN help us to provide scholarship funds to those who cannot afford to pay the cost to attend this unique camp. Your donation will go specifically to this "RDC Diversity Camp Scholarship Fund", and not to other RDC programs or operational expenses.

Thank you for being a big part of this new and exciting project for our wonderfully diverse and vibrant community!
