Many of us trans guys never had the opportunity to experience a boyhood summer camp. It’s our aim that you find that missing piece at Camp Lost Boys. We provide a retreat away from the stress and the struggles of your day-to-day life. We aim to focus on self-empowerment and self-esteem building through the physical and mental activities of a traditional summer camp experience. Come climb ropes, zip line, try archery, hike mountains, go mountain biking, make tie dye, hang out with horses, enjoy facilitated fireside chats, music, friendship and so much more! We hope you let down your guard, and get in touch with yourself, nature and your community.
Our camp is for any guy who self-identifies as a man of trans experience and is over the age of 18. This camp is largely focused on physical activities and is a dedicated place where we can celebrate our male identities in a safe, fun, and rugged outdoor setting. If this appeals to you, please join us!
Past camps have had between 35-45% MoC in attendance and ages 18-76.
Next camp is located on 400 acres in the Black Forest of Colorado covered with rolling hills, miles of trails and pristine forest. It is about a 1.5 hour drive from DEN airport. Since Denver International is a hub airport, it is more affordable to fly in from most parts of the country and more accessible via road trip. This camp ground is home to a dozen horses and other wild life, as well as boasting miles of hiking trails easily accessible to campers.
We will be offering a message board for ride-sharing. More info provided when you register. No one has ever been left without a ride.
Slumber party vibes all around! You’ll be sharing your cabin with somewhere between 10 and 20 others. Cabin groups are assigned with your comfort and happiness in mind. If you are in need of an accessible bathroom in your quarters, there is a cabin that is more dorm-style than the traditional rustic ones. Please be sure to indicate that need/preference in registration.
If you're looking for less roommates and more room, we also have an option for a private studio cabin for an additional cost. The private cabin option holds 1-2 people per room with bathroom/kitchen and some living room space. Please be sure to select this option in check out.
If you are looking for something more rustic, we offer platform tents that can accommodate 3 campers. It is a cheaper more camp-like experience.
The camp does not provide linens, so we suggest you bring your own sleeping bag and pillow. However if you need linens the camp will be able to supply, bedding, towels and pillow for an additional cost, be sure to indicate that need at checkout and you can purchase when you arrive for an additional $30.
