Drag artists will lead a government-funded Junior Drag summer camp for kids — which is targeted to attract children as young as 7 years old.

The Carousel Theater for Young People in Vancouver will host the drag summer camp for kids funded by various government agencies like the City of Vancouver, Canada Council for the Arts, and more, The Daily Caller reported.

The event billed as a “Junior Drag Camp” runs $460 per person and is targeted to kids 7-11. The group also offers a “Teen Drag camp” for kids 12-17, which costs $900 per person.

“Do you have an alter ego that is just waiting to hit the stage?” one statement on the website read. “Our new two week senior Drag Camp might be just your cup of tea, honey! Led by some of Vancouver’s established and emerging drag artists, you’ll learn how to access your inner confidence, show your true colors, and maybe even let out that inner diva!”

“Join some of Vancouver’s most amazing drag artists and learn how drag can brighten up your life!” it added.

At one point, the message is directed at parents who might be “wondering, is drag for kids?”

“Drag is for everyone!” the statement read. “Parents, ask yourself, what’s the difference between what you wear at home versus what you wear at work? You’re doing drag honey, you just don’t know it!”

“All students will be provided with a Drag Makeup Starter Kit!” the message continued. “More details about this will be provided closer to the date of the camp.”

Reading through the website, a show it promoted last spring was titled “Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls” for ages as young as 7.

A description of the show read, “Follow the story of nine-year-old Fiona who comes out as a boy and wants to be called Fin.”

“He has always had a feeling – knowing something was different but not knowing what it was exactly or how to say it,” it added. “As Fin cuts his hair short and changes his name, his family works to understand and adjust to Fin’s gender identity.” The rest of the description can be found here.
