Camp Lightbulb

Camp Lightbulb is a Summer Camp for LGBTQ+ teens. Puck Markham created Camp Lightbulb in 2011 as one of the first camps for LGBTQ+ youth in the nation. A core component of his vision was the creation of a Rainbow Squad: a group of validated and confident LGBTQ+ youth who support and have fun with one another.

Spaces like Camp Lightbulb are rare but critically important to the healthy development of queer youth. We chose Provincetown as our primary home because of the town’s vibrant LGBTQ+ community that has sustained for generations and have since expanded to New York City and Los Angeles. We intentionally host our camps in LGBTQ+-inclusive communities so that campers see the beauty of a community unapologetically flying free and can manifest a sense of pride within themselves.

Dream Day on Cape Cod is a non-profit organization based in Brewster, Massachusetts, dedicated to bringing respite into the lives of children with serious and/or life-threatening illnesses and their families.

For 28 years, Dream Day has helped hundreds of these families disconnect from the daily struggles of hospital and doctors’ visits and round-the clock care to reconnect with one another and to connect with others who understand and accept what they have been going through at its Camp Nan-Ke-Rafe, a 31-acre facility located adjacent to Nickerson State Park.

Each summer we operate eight sessions of family camp – bringing families together for a week of fun, family, and respite. Our hope is that families have the chance to create loving, lasting memories that transcend illness and struggle.

We also host off-season family events, including an annual Holiday Weekend in December.

All of our programs are at no cost to the family.

In all that we do, we aim to protect the natural environment around us—preserving the character and sustaining the future of this special place we call home.
