Buried within the woods of Alberta, Canada, sits Camp fYrefly, a haven for trans and non-binary teens, far away from the fierce political battle against queer expression and gender identity. Summer Qamp invites audiences into the innocence and joy of a summer away with friends while never losing sight of the bravery of these young protagonists whose very existence is challenged in their everyday lives. The documentary focuses on this group of queer youth as they attend a camp like no other: a judgment-free zone where they can explore their authentic selves while building community and making memories that will last a lifetime.
