Come join us for CampOUT!, a weekend camp retreat experience for families with LGBTQIA+ parent or parents and families raising LGBTQIA+ children and youth. Camp de Benneville Pines offers a safe and caring environment where families gather together in the fresh mountain air, adults openly share and network, and youth enjoy the freedom to play and build lasting friendships with other like-minded campers.

April in the mountains can be very spring-like or we can have a late snowfall.  Plan on having fun outdoors either way.  Should we have snowy conditions, we just bundle up a bit more with knit hats, gloves, and warm coats.

Enjoy a walk to the lake, hike into the wilderness, design family quilt square, arts & crafts, colorful egg hunt, spring hat decorating, movie night, chocolate bunnies, building fairy houses.  We will play BINGO with prizes, board games & puzzles, showcase your talent, dress-up for Rainbow’s Family Dance Party.  There will be lots of good food and lots of good company at every meal.

Rainbow Family Camp is a weekend of fun and friendship because of you!  Although our campers look forward to their camp favorites, it is the enthusiastic participation of our parent volunteers that make this camp our most popular camp every year! Do you have a creative idea to share?  Would you like to lead a camp activity?  Let us know, as we’d love to weave you into our tapestry of fun and games.   

At Camp de Benneville Pines, each family has their own bedroom in a fully heated cabin shared with a few other families. Bring your own bedding (sleeping bags & pillows) and plan to make new friends as you gather with old friends up here on our mountain top.

This camp usually sells out fast!
