Camp Lightbulb is a Summer Camp for GLBT teens. Puck Markham created Camp Lightbulb in 2011 as one of the first nonprofit 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. Since its founding, Camp Lightbulb has expanded to New York City and Los Angeles, both home to flourishing LGBTQ+ communities of their own. Our commitment to connect campers to the LGBTQ+ community separates Camp Lightbulb from similar spaces. We intentionally host our camps in the heart of LGBTQ+ communities so that campers see the beauty of a community unapologetically flying free and can manifest a sense of pride within themselves.

The Community Development Partnership supports an array of programs that strengthen our Lower Cape community, providing greater opportunities for all who live here to thrive.

Our work starts with creating affordable homes—so essential to a healthy economy, but a real challenge in communities like ours where seasonal and vacation dynamics drive the market beyond the reach of many who live and work locally all year round.

We also work to launch entrepreneurs and strengthen local businesses. We believe a vibrant future depends on sustaining traditional industries and inspiring new ones—especially when they’re based on renewable natural resources such as fishing, farming, art and hospitality.

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.
