About us

The GayCamp Association

The GayCamp Association is a non-profit organization led by a board of about 10 people. The board operates on a voluntary basis and consists of people with experience in arranging GayCamp camps.

Our main activity is to arrange a summer camp each year. Every autumn we have a reunion for participants at this year's summer camp. We have organized summer camps since 1983 and in 2013 we celebrated our 30 year anniversary.

Through the membership, you support the associations work with HIV prevention and support to youngsters and gay refugees in Sweden.

The board needs reinforcement

The GayCamp Association is now looking for two new board members. The Board currently consists of 7 happy gays of different ages coming from different parts of the world and the country.

The assignment is to, together with everyone else in the board, plan and run a summer camp for gay and bisexual men, which takes place a week every summer since more than 30 years back. This means, among other things: seeking financial resources, searching for places where the camp can take place, planning activities, arranging smaller events in Stockholm for the rest of the year and participating in our board meetings which take place once a month in central Stockholm..

As a member, you are very free to shape and influence our common work. We are looking for you who identify yourself as a man and are gay or bisexual, and are driven, proactive and like to make things happen. If you have previous experience of volunteer work or project management that’s great but it’s not a must.

If this sounds interesting, don't hesitate to email us today at gaycamp@gaycamp.se - write a few lines about yourself and any questions you may have.

Our purpose & goals

To create social networking and deepen relations between Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) of different ages and from different backgrounds and cultures.

To integrate closeted MSM with men that are more secure and integrated in their gay, bisexuality and transgender identity.

To defend bisexual and transgender MSM rights and interests in the homo/hetero community.

To integrate MSM with different ethnic backgrounds.

To integrate HIV positive MSM with presumably HIV negative MSM.

To promote sexual health among MSM, by giving accurate and non-judgmental information about HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STI).

To welcome all MSM independent of religion or non-religion. GayCamp promotes discussions about religion and faith, but is neutral in all questions about religion and faith.

To create a homo-social meeting place that is not dependent on the financial fitness or commercial environments with alcohol consumption.

To provide facilities for physically and mentally disabled MSM to participate in the homo social community.
