Camp Lightbulb offers our own take on traditional summer camps. Our camps camps take place in the heart of vibrant LGBTQ communities, whether it is bohemian Provincetown or cosmopolitan LA and NYC.
Our camps are small and intimate, and with limited space, allowing for a hands on and individualized experience for every camper, with a high counselor-to-camper ratio, staffed by counselors that reflect our community, who are fully trained and subject to references and extensive background checks.
We connect our campers with the best in the LGBTQ community and inspire our campers to build community at camp and throughout the year. There are 6 main elements to our programming: art, community, fun, the outdoors, service and well-being.
We stay in hostels managed by Hosteling International. In Provincetown, we book the entire hostel for our use; in Los Angeles and New York City we book a number of rooms for our exclusive use, but are part of a larger hostel experience. Room assignments are randomized by age.
