Camp Lightbulb

About Camp Lightbulb

Camp Lightbulb creates life-changing and magical camp experiences for queer youth to connect and build community. Founded in 2011 with an inaugural camp attended by 9 campers, we have since served over 1,500 LGBTQ+ youth at our sleepaway camps in Provincetown, Los Angeles, and NYC.

We focus on fun—not intervention—and incorporate seven main elements: art, community, fun, learning, the outdoors, service and well-being. Our relatively small camps allow for personal attention and a high counselor-to-camper ratio so that everyone gets to know one another, which supports the creation of a lasting close-knit community.

“At the internship, Camp Lightbulb gave me a lot of freedom and discussed with me on the first day what I would be interested in working on. Since it is a small organization, I was able to manage all of their social media for the duration of the internship. I was given a lot of autonomy in what I wanted my internship experience to look like, which I liked. Located in Hollywood, the internship was also located in a high-quality office building and was very lax when it came to dress codes.”
