Camps have had exposure to learning more about serving transgender campers and staff, but what happens when you still face questions and challenges in this developing topic? This session will go beyond the basic transgender 101 and take the second step in learning about common situations camps might be dealing with. We will dive deeper into questions camps are experiencing as they become more inclusive of transgender campers and staff. Receive information on policy development, review case studies and identify resources specific to your camp, board and stakeholders.
By the end of the webinar participant will learn:
- Develop specific policies to support transgender campers and staff.
- Understand emerging issues related to transgender campers.
- Give examples and best practices in serving transgender campers and staff.
- Identify resources and tools specific to your program and population.

Jessica Weissbuch: In 2002, Jessica moved to Los Angeles from Chicago in order to pursue her dream of working in television production. As time passed, she realized her longing to work with people in a more meaningful way, and was compelled to work with youth in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) community. In March 2010, Jessica earned her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University with a specialization in LGBT psychology and became a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in 2016. Jessica is honored to be one of the co-founders of Brave Trails and continues to work with youth, building their leadership skills with programs that support LGBTQ youth to take a stand in their communities and be the leaders of tomorrow. Jessica lives to see queer youth become empowered individuals who work together to change the world.
