7. The Ghost of Hope for the Future of America
As you walk down the street, every blonde, blue-eyed farmer’s daughter (there are so many farmer’s daughters) you see smiles and says “hello!” only to follow up with “don’t go into the woods, there are strange women in the woods” in a hushed voice as they walk past you.
We wanna see you in Wisconsin! Some regular spots have opened up PLUS we’ve also got some VIP Apartments if that’s more your style!
“I hate injustice, and also lightning, because of this one time I got struck in the face by lightning.”

Read these essays and feel inspired to apply for and/or donate to the campership fund for our September 2016 camp in Wisconsin!
We’ve got two full camperships with travel expenses and one campership without travel for three lucky trans women because the more trans women at camp, the better!

A personal take on showing up, hiking through it, and knots and how to tie them.
Can you capture some of the magic of A-Camp’s Diarist Hike where you live? Based on my experiences, I’d say yes.
This week at A-Camp, we’ll be using all these cans to make simple repoussé earrings. If you’ve got a can waiting to be recycled, bust out your scissors and join us. And if not, I bet there’s something cold in your fridge just begging for you to drink it.
Poetry slams and open mics for queer poets of all stripes to try out.
Knowing that these A-Camp All-Stars live parts of their lives off the mountain and reading comics, I decided to ask some of them what their very favorite comics are.
Soda tastings are great if you’re underage, you and/or your friends don’t drink alcohol, or you just want to mix it up. Also, soda’s way cheaper than wine. Wine tastings are so 2000 and late.
This week I’m a short short enthusiast, an Earth Mother, and a Mother Earth stan.
Feel free to say: “SOS, send help, everyone is too good-looking!”
