We are parents, caregivers, psychotherapists, teachers and friends of gender expansive children who wanted them to flourish in environments without the pressure of going “stealth” and of feeling “scared” of their secret being revealed. By feeling safe and by playing amongst their peers with experienced camp counselors, gender fluid children would see positive examples of gender creative identities reflected back to them in wholesome play. Rainbow Day Camp is a program of the enGender – a 501(c)3 non profit- and is run as a summer camp by an independent school in the Bay Area.
