Summer Camp is a safe place for everyone to be their beautiful, shimmering (and shimmying!) selves. It’s a celebration of who we are and how we love ourselves and others.
Behaviour that makes anyone feel unsafe or unwelcome is NOT ON!
We have zero tolerance for racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism or any other hate-based discrimination.
Don’t do it or you’ll get the boot.
Likewise, YOU are the only person who can make decisions about your body.
Don’t touch or photograph anyone you don’t know without their enthusiastic and explicit consent.
Be respectful. Be open-minded. And be kind to everyone. <3

What happens if it’s raining?
The show must go on! Summer Camp is happening rain, hail or shine. So, in the event of a little summer rain, bring a sexy raincoat and wellies.
