The Ten Oaks Project engages and connects children and youth of LGBTQ+ communities through programs and activities rooted in play.
About Our Charity
We are based Ottawa and currently offer two 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. With space for 72 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.
