Come talk it out at the QRC Think Tank!
There will be break-out groups for campers, volunteers, families and host families to share ideas, as well as some specific goal setting for this summer!

Have you ever wondered how Queer Rock Camp is organized? Do you want to be involved but aren’t sure how or if you have the skills needed?
You are invited to our Debrief and Welcome Meeting Sunday, September 16th, in Olympia, WA at Stonewall Youth (203 4th Ave E # 516) at 6pm.*
We are going to hang out, eat snacks, and break down the work that goes into organizing camp. We will outline our current organizing structure and brainstorm ways people can get involved (we will have a follow up meeting where we evaluate our structure and bend it to fit people’s desires and needs).
Queer youth, community members, volunteers, organizers, parents, and allies are encouraged to attend! We value diverse skills and skill levels and believe that every person has something to bring to this work. Come hang out!!
