CAMP Out, the annual camp for LGBTI youth, has opened registration for the next school holidays.

A non-profit organisation based in Sydney, Camp Out welcomes any 13-17 year olds who identify under the LGBTI spectrum or simply support the community.

Taking place April 13-17, Camp Out is made up of teachers, registered psychologists, case workers, and community and youth workers that can help support any young LGBTI people experiencing difficulties.

The Camp is supported by Twenty10, a NSW community organisation who work with and support LGBTI youth.

Camp Out recognises that LGBTI youth face higher rates of bullying and other social barriers, and aim to create a safe space for them.

The program includes a variety of art, sporting, team and community building activities, as well as workshops and discussion sessions.

A registration form can be downloaded from their website and a parent/guardian information day will be held on March 15.

Camp Out was originally inspired by the North American camp Camp Ten Trees, which has run as a queer summer camp for 13 years.
