Summer Camp 2024

Welcome to camp registration!


COVID: If you’ve tested positive within the 10 days leading up to camp, please stay home. If you’ve been around someone who has tested positive, please plan to test yourself within the 48-hours leading up to camp.

GUESTS: Summer Camp is a MEMBERS ONLY event – meaning camp is only available to current LOIA members. Membership in LOIA is exclusive to 18+ females, trans-folk and gender non-conforming individuals within the queer community of Iowa. While we love our allies, this space is not for you. This space is also not open to cis-identifying men. If you have a guest that falls within our membership criteria - please invite them to join LOIA! Keep in mind that LV is 18+, 420 friendly and allows nudity. There are people who participate in all of the above, and those that participate in none of the above. All we ask is that you be respectful of your fellow campers. (Fall Camp will be guest friendly, including those who fall outside of our membership criteria.)

Pool: LV has an inground pool that is available during camp office hours. Generally 8am-11pm, or when Jerry heads to bed. You are welcome to bring floaties, or use those provided on-site.

ACCOMODATIONS: There are a total of 13 cabins on site (4 small, 5 medium and 4 large), plenty of tent spaces as well as full electric/water sites with dumping for RV folks. Cabins require a 2-night stay (Friday-Sunday). It is highly recommended that large cabins be shared between parties that can occupy all bed spaces available. There are two sets of bathrooms – by the office and at the pavilion. Showers are available in the office restrooms. The campground runs on well water. For more information, please visit our FAQs.

CABIN LOTTERY: Summer Camp will employ a Lottery System. (Please note we reserve the right to return to a first-come, first serve reservation for future camps.) Of the 13 cabins available, up to 2 cabins are reserved for LOIA camp staff and up to 2 cabins are prioritized for those with medical need*. The remainder cabins will be pulled in a lottery on June 5th. Priority will be given to campers who elect to camp for the full four nights. (LV cannot currently accommodate cleaning between guests for partial bookings.) Any cabins unfilled, will be drawn for those who elect for 3-night and 2-night stays.

To participate in the Cabin Lottery, please proceed to book your stay using the form below. Under "Cabin" you will find "Cabin Lottery". Booking under this product will allow you to elect participation in the Small, Medium, and/or Large Cabin Lotteries during the registration process. In addition, you may elect to use the Medical Need qualifier for access to the Medical Need lottery. Upon submission of this form, you will receive confirmation of your elections via email. Cabin Lottery will be pulled on Wednesday, June 5th. You will be notified via email and text message if your reservation has been drawn. You will have until Friday, June 7th at 8:00am to submit your 50% deposit via your e-mailed invoice. Failure to submit your deposit will result in a forfeit of your cabin and a re-pull will occur. Any subsequent pull will be notified by email, text, and will have 24 hours to submit the designated deposit.

*Please note, if you elect for Medical Need and are NOT drawn for the designated medical need lottery, you will be included in the remaining draws for the size of cabin(s) you've elected.

** Please note, NONE of the cabins are ADA compliant. If you have ADA needs, we recommend booking at one of the local hotels listed in the FAQ section under the Surroundings tab. Consider also checking out the Accessibility tab for camper experiences.

DEPOSIT: All bookings require a 50% deposit, payable through the reservation system below. You will be emailed a link to complete the final payment. The final payment will be due by July 5th, end of day. If you require an extension to complete your full payment, please reach out to admin@lesbiansofiowa.org by July 5th. If you DO NOT pay your full payment and DO NOT request an extension, your cabin will be released to the Cabin Lottery. Failure to submit a deposit or final payment, without notice or communication, will result in a 1 camp suspension from the Cabin Lottery system. 

REFUNDS: LOIA will issue a refund within 24 hours of booking, minus taxes and fees. LOIA will NOT issue refunds after the initial 24 hour period, except for in extreme circumstances and when approved by the LOIA leadership team. This is for all bookings made for Camp, NOT just the cabins. If you No Show a Cabin reservation without communicating, it will be released at 8am the following day to the Cabin Lottery, and then those present on a first come basis. If you do not communicate, your ability to reserve cabins at future camps may be impacted.

If at any point you have a concern or question about reservations, please reach out to admin@lesbiansofiowa.org. For more information about the campground, check out LV Campground!
