Owning Our Narratives: Exploring & Unpacking Gender Identity at Camp

Type: Programs
Topics: Cornerstone, Programs

While gender identity is both nuanced and complex, all too often the expectations around how gender should manifest at camp can impact and interrupt how campers, counselors, and staff are able to be their authentic selves. In “Owning Our Narratives,” you will explore what it means to have ownership of your personal and communal narratives around gender identity by challenging the constructs of sensationalism. You will learn how to use writing and storytelling as a tool for self-expression, empowerment, and community building at camp. No previous writing experience is necessary!
