June 20 to June 24, 2022 Nassau County LGBTQIA+ Youth Can Have Fun and Learn at a Day Camp Designed Just for Them
Fernandina Beach Pride announces a weeklong Day Camp for LGBTQIA+ youth where they can let loose, connect with others, learn and express themselves. Camp will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and be based at space donated by New Vision Congregational United Church of Christ, located at 96072 Chester Rd in Yulee.
Genece Minshew, President of Fernandina Pride, the organization sponsoring the camp, says that, “…this will be an environment where LGBTQIA+ youth can feel safe, celebrated, loved and valued by each other and our community.” Enrollment is open to young people who have completed 6th grade through those who have completed their junior year of high school. “This will be a great way to truly celebrate Pride Month – for both our young people and our community leaders,” says Minshew.
Activities at Rainbow Camp will offer fun and learning including:
