We are headed up by camp directors Kristin Russo and Marni Kellison, and we’ve got a gaggle of amazing weirdos who make this the best adult queer camp experience on the planet.

Senior Staff


Our Senior Staff Consultants

A-Camp is at its best when the entire community commits to making A-Camp a comfortable and accepting space for all campers. We expect campers to be both respectful of differences and patient with well-intentioned mistakes, while being aware that bullying, racism and transphobia have no place here. In order to ensure the best camp possible, A-Camp has four Senior Staff members dedicated to specific communities, serving as consultants to camp leadership and go-to supports for campers onsite. What follows is their own descriptions of their roles at A-Camp.

I'll be advising the camp directors on programming, etc. for camp, supporting trans women with camperships, be a resource and support person for trans women during camp, and basically do everything I can to make sure trans women’s safety/comfort/fun is centered at A-Camp X.
