Co-Founder | Pride Camping Association

The Outdoor Education Director at YMCA Camp Elphinstone in British Columbia, Davin Allan completed his HBA in Sociology, focusing particularly on gender and youth studies. Having worked at a summer camp for 2SLGBTQ+ and allied youth in Ontario, Davin saw the need for many other camps to embrace this same sense of inclusion and acceptance, to ensure 2SLGBTQ+ campers are being offered a safe, barrier-free, and traditional camp experience. Collaborating with community leaders and 2SLGBTQ+ organizations and through his own experiences, Davin crafted a set of recommended guidelines and training sessions for the inclusion of 2SLGBTQ+ campers at overnight camp, which he has started to share widely amongst camping professionals.
