The Ten Oaks Project engages and connects children and youth from LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirit, queer) communities through programs and activities rooted in play. We are based in the Ottawa-Gatineau region and currently offer two flagship summer programs: Camp Ten Oaks and Project Acorn, in addition to other year-round activities and programs.
Camp Ten Oaks is a one-week, sleep-away camp for children and youth ages 8-17. Camp takes place at a site located 45 minutes north of Ottawa in the Gatineau Hills. With space for 62 campers, the summer schedule at Camp Ten Oaks is designed to provide campers of all ages with an extraordinary camp experience. Our activities include both the traditional and the cutting-edge. Our camp program is offered to campers and families on a sliding scale fee.
Project Acorn is a leadership retreat for youth aged 16-24 from LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirit, and queer) communities (including youth from LGBTQ families and/or youth who identify as LGBTQ). This program of the Ten Oaks Project offers youth a safe space to be themselves, learn from each other, and try new things, while recognizing and developing their strengths as leaders.
