Q-Squared Men Programs
is a chance to gather with other men to reflect on, embrace, and celebrate who you are, where you have been, and where you are headed. Discover new parts of yourself and enjoy the company of other men in a non-judgmental, attitude-free atmosphere.
is held each year at a private retreat center nestled among towering trees with scenic trails and rivers. Stay in modern cabins with hot showers and modern conveniences or pitch your own tent and sleep under the stars. Meals are prepared by the on site staff and are enjoyed family style. CAMP (short for “Come and Meet People”) is a place to connect with fellow Gay, Bisexual and Transgender men; the place to shed attitudes and dissolve boundaries. It is a place to learn about yourself, to forge lasting friendships and develop a deeper sense of community. It’s a magical and wondrous experience you will never forget!
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Our event in the spring called Qspring was very successful, as was the Labor Day weekend CAMP event. Each year we do a follow up survey
to gauge the success of our events. Our surveys
show an overwhelmingly positive reaction. Including responses directly relating to our goals of a healthier, stronger community.
Our current needs are relating to financing for scholarships
. We feel that doing our best to help the less fortunate attend our events is of extreme importance. Private donors have been our only source for these scholarships. Also,because we hold our CAMP event in a remote location (for strategic purposes) many people cannot get to our event. In the past we had been able to provide a bus at some cost to the attendees. But because of the economy, prices have gone up dramatically. This past year we felt one of the reasons for a decline in numbers was due to lack of transportation.
