Day & Overnight Camps for Nature Lovers

Trail Blazer of Northern New Jersey has lots of nature to offer 

Stretching over 1000 acres of beautiful forested land along Lake Mashipacong, in Northern New Jersey, Camp Trail Blazer features 14 campsites, dozens of activity areas, and a private 55-acre lake. Focusing on the benefits of nature to enhance youth development, these programs build strong social and emotional foundations to set up each camper for true, long-term success. Grounded on the research-backed strategies of goal setting, team building and challenge, free play and exploration, science and skill building, as well as reflection, each day incorporates these building blocks through a variety of fun-filled activities to deliver uniquely powerful experiences.

Nature Based Summer Programs for Exploration, Learning & Growth

Campers can choose from different, small group, DAY CAMP locations, each filled with hands-on experiences, group play, challenges, exploration, art, friendship and community. OVERNIGHT CAMPS are also filled with outdoor adventure and exploration to “help campers develop an appreciation for nature, a collaborative and self-determined spirit, and the ability to set and reach goals for themselves and their group”. The FARMSTEAD CAMP allows campers to learn all about farm living, from gathering eggs to making bread and harvesting, farm skill mastery, and camping adventures. Other options include: LEADERSHIP IN TRAINING, INTENSIVE CANOE and MOUNTAIN BIKING programs. No matter the camp selected, each day is different, bringing each camper unique opportunities for self discovery, development, respect for others and the land, as well as a strong sense of community and care for the environment.
