Q Camp: An LGBTQ+ Community-Building Retreat for University of Maryland, College Park Undergrads.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday, September 13th, 2019 at midnight.
DATE/LOCATION: October 12th - 13th at 4H National Conference Center

Q Camp is a program of the LGBT Equity Center, a professionally staffed office of the university. We encourage all UMD undergraduate students who are or want to be involved with LGBTQ+ communities on campus, including LGBTQ+ people as well as allies/supporters, to apply. This program is well-suited for first semester freshmen and transfer students looking to engage more deeply with the campus LGBTQ+ community. 

Throughout the weekend, students will participate in activities meant to provide positive supports around the following areas:

  • identity development 
  • self-care
  • community building
  • ways to be involved on campus

We will leave campus in the morning on Saturday, October 12th and return on Sunday morning, October 13th. Please reserve these dates on your calendar as you apply. The retreat takes place at a retreat center in Maryland and transportation is provided. All participants must travel with the group.


COST: Most of the cost of this retreat is supported by the LGBT Equity Center, however we ask for a non-refundable registration fee of $20 for all registrants. If you are not able to pay the fee due to financial need, you can mark this option in your application and we will contact you to discuss a fee waiver. Meals, lodging, and transportation are all provided at no cost to you.
