Registration for summer 2021 is already open!
After a COVID-free Day Camp and Family Camp in 2020, Trail Blazers is ready for a safe, fun, and screen-free summer at Overnight Camp 2021! From Grades K-10, there is an adventure for everyone. Come outside and play, adventure awaits!
After a year of sitting behind a screen, your camper can look forward to a summer filled with hiking, swimming, fishing, boating, exploring, gardening, farming, biking, high-ropes, learning about our environment, building outdoor skills, laughter, great memories, and new friends. After a full day, they'll fall asleep under the stars in a canvas tent, for a true camping experience. Teens can participate in our Leadership program for a challenging and rewarding experience.
Trail Blazers is located on 1000 beautifully forested acres, including our 50-acre Lake Mashipacong, in northern New Jersey and is accredited by the American Camp Association. Trail Blazers has been running outdoor programs since 1887 and we are ready for your camper to join us this summer.
