TORONTO – On April 16, 2021, Camp Dreamwood announced the launch of its gender-inclusive cabins as
part of its commitment to inclusive programming.
As one of the only overnight summer camp programs in Ontario to offer such cabins, Camp Dreamwood
will be taking the next step in its inclusion model. In addition to the girls’ and boy’s cabins, interested
campers will now be able to select a gender-inclusive cabin. Supported by both a female and male
counsellor, these cabins will be open to all interested campers, inclusive to all gender identities.
“There are a number of camps across North America geared specifically towards special needs campers,
and LGBTQ youth but Camp Dreamwood is constantly striving and proud to be one of the only camps in
Ontario that truly welcomes everyone and allows children to come as they are,” said Ashley
Duarte-Devlin, Owner and Director, Camp Dreamwood. “We want to allow all campers to have the
traditional camp experience and continue to ensure that every child who attends Dreamwood is
welcomed, included and celebrated.”
The addition of these cabins highlights Camp Dreamwood’s commitment to inclusive programming.
Currently, Camp Dreamwood offers unique camp-wide programming developed for campers of all ages,
abilities and genders.
“It is extremely exciting to be a part of a camp that truly goes above and beyond for inclusivity. We hope
adding this cabin option will allow even more families and their children the opportunity to feel a part of
the overnight summer camp experience offered at Camp Dreamwood,” said Madison Thakore, Assistant
Director, Camp Dreamwood. “This next step in our inclusion programming highlights our commitment to
recognizing children of all gender identities, abilities and backgrounds.”
Gender-inclusive cabin options are now available at the time of registration. Interested families and
campers can go to www.campdreamwood.ca to register or to learn more.
