Every summer GSA Network offers GSA Activist Camp! GSA Activist Camps are youth-planned, youth-led summer training academies.

Strengthen their GSA clubs through coalition building and strategic organizing.
Understand the legal rights of students and GSA clubs.
Protect students from slurs, bullying and discrimination.
Recognize the ways that homophobia and transphobia are connected to racism, sexism, classism and other oppressions.
