 July 13th to July 18th 



For the last seven years, Easton Mountain has brought together 40 to 60 young LGBTQ adults, many of whom are disenfranchised youths from NYC and the Boston region. These young adults have come together for a week of community building where they engage in creating their own workshops from leadership training and mentoring to gender identity, race, and homophobia.

With the generous support of the Joan Mitchell Foundation and donations from Easton Mountain’s community members, this year Easton Mountain is excited to produce brand new youth program. “Arts in the Woods” is a week long program from June 9th to th 2014 at Easton Mountain Retreat Center designed to help young people ages 18-25 unleash their creative potentials and express their unique queer selves through music, dance, visual arts, and theater. The program includes room/board (see Amenities for more details about lodging), all program supplies, and three meals per day for the duration of the program.

WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE ARE SAYING: “This week I  helped open me to learning new things and do things outside my comfort zone. I feel like I know myself so much better now and I’m so glad I came.”  —Scott, age 22 “Everything about the week was incredible and I left feeling really confident in myself and my direction in life. The world would be a much better place if every young LGBT person could do this program just once and realize they’re not alone.”  — Ashley, age 19
