LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. Sometimes, Q is added to stand for queer or those who are still questioning their sexual preference. In this type of camp, children are provided with a safe haven where they feel that belonging to any of the sexual orientations mentioned above is normal and nothing to be ashamed of. These camps also empower these children, build their self confidence and instill leadership skills. Some offer musical productions, from theater plays to Broadway performances. Some are centered on outdoor activities that may include hiking, camping, birdwatching, canoeing, kayaking and so on.

Conversion therapy is the pseudoscientific practice of trying to change an individual's sexual orientation from homosexual or bisexual to heterosexual using psychological, physical, or spiritual interventions. There is no reliable evidence that sexual orientation can be changed, and medical institutions warn that conversion therapy practices are ineffective and potentially harmful. More recent clinical techniques used in the United States have been limited to counseling, visualization, social skills training, psychoanalytic therapy , and spiritual interventions such as "prayer and group support and pressure",  though there are some reports of aversive treatments through unlicensed practice as late as the early s. The history of conversion therapy can be divided broadly into three periods: an early Freudian period; a period of mainstream approval of conversion therapy, when the mental health establishment became the "primary superintendent" of sexuality; and a post- Stonewall period where the mainstream medical profession disavowed conversion therapy. During the earliest parts of psychoanalytic history, analysts granted that homosexuality was non-pathological in certain cases, and the ethical question of whether it ought to be changed was discussed. By the s analysts assumed that homosexuality was pathological and that attempts to treat it were appropriate, although psychoanalytic opinion about changing homosexuality was largely pessimistic.
