Summer Camp

Summer 2015 Celebrity Sighting.jpg

Camp Lightbulb returns in 2020 for our 9th summer. Our home away from home is an old Coast Guard Station in Truro, and a quarter mile from gorgeous Ballston Beach. Most of of our activities take place a few miles down the road in historic Provincetown, one of the most gay friendly places anywhere.

Our camps are small and intimate, all the campers and counselors know each other by name, 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.
