Happy New Year

Hello Campers,

Camp Lightbulb wishes everyone a happy and healthy 2015. We can't wait to get this year started. We are switching our email communication to MailChimp. You might accidentally get an email twice as we migrate our subscriber list. Apologies in advance.

Early Bird Special
Camp Lightbulb returns for our 4th summer from July 5 through 12. And we are offering a special Early Bird registration to lock in last summer's rates if you sign up now by clicking
here.

Truro Hostel
This summer we have booked the youth hostel in Truro for our exclusive use. It is close to a gorgeous beach, has great rooms, a huge kitchen and living room, is only 10 minutes outside of Provincetown and is all ours for the week!

Thank you to our Donors
We want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us last year, especially our donors who help make Camp happen. Donation confirmations for last year will be sent out shortly.

Camp Fairs
Camp Lightbulb will visit a number of Camp Fairs over the next few months. This Sunday 01/18 from 10A to 1P Camp Lightbulb will be at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. If this is your neck of the woods, please drop by. It's fun and free to attend.

It's freezing on the Cape. Here is to counting down to summer!

Thank You For A Great Year!

Hello campers,

This was a great year for Camp Lightbulb. Our 18 campers came from across to US for a fun-filled week in America's best seaside resort.



Camp Lightbulb's mission is to provide a magical, overnight summer camp experience for LGBT youth, aged 14 to 18, filled with fun, pride, community, friends, support, self-discovery and memories to last a lifetime.

Our date for next summer is set - July 5 through 12 and the first sign ups are in. But we want to create more experiences for LGBT youth in 2015. Watch this space to find out what and how you can help.

For now we want to say a big thank you to all our campers, parents, guardian, support workers, counselors, donors, funders, grant-makers, board members, volunteers and all those who understand why having this Camp is so important for LGBT youth.

If you want to be a guiding light to our youth and make one more tax-free donation this year, please click here. We cannot do this without you. Thank you and see you next year!

Under the Texan Sun

Last week we were at Austin Pride. Happy families, great vibes, some random protesters, and a whole bunch of potential campers, made for a full day under the hot Texan Sun.
