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 and/or masculine identities in a safe, fun, and rugged outdoor setting. If this appeals to you, please join us!
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 affordable to fly in from most parts of the country. 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.
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.
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 select at checkout.
What does the cost include?
- Lodging for 2 nights.
- Three fresh and organic meals a day plus snacks and beverages - we work with the our own chef (who is also a man of trans experience!) to design vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free menus and options catered specifically for our group and to accommodate food allergies.
- Access to all activities offered.
How much does it cost?
All inclusive full tuition for camp is $330 (plus registration fee). Single, more private cabins increase tuition to $490. It is important to us as organizers of a community event that we keep cost as low as possible. If cost is prohibitive, we encourage you to apply for our scholarship fund when it opens, but keep in mind space is limited. Please also keep in mind that scholarship does not include transportation to and from the camp, you will need to get there on your own.
