Camp Aurora Campers

Camp Aurora Cabin Leader Applications Now Open!

Camp Aurora is an overnight summer camp for Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning (2SLGBTQ+) youth between the ages 14-17. Camp Aurora has been running since 2007.

Camp Aurora is run by Rainbow Resource Centre and is located about 2 hours outside of Winnipeg in the Whiteshell area at Camp Brereton, thanks to an in-kind donation from Variety Manitoba.

Camp Aurora programming aims to build capacity, resilience, and community of 2SLGBTQ+ youth. Every year, programming includes a variety of sessions that focus on: creativity, expression, education, support, hands-on activities, self-care practices and more. Workshops have included a drag show with local performers, learning about queer history, queer sex education, and affirming yoga to name a few. Classic camp activities like swimming, canoe trips, campfires, arts and crafts, recreational games and a dance also take place.
