What we're all about...

Trail Blazers camp is 1000 beautifully forested acres on Lake Mashipacong in northern New Jersey. Camp features 14 campsites, dozens of activity areas, and a private 55-acre lake. Join us for our classic Outdoor Adventure program, where campers will develop the skills of a true backpacker and learn all about the nature that surrounds them. Or choose one of our specialty programs to hone biking, canoeing, farm & garden, or leadership skills. Whatever path you choose, Trail Blazers is an adventure unlike any other; open to campers of every background and all experience levels.

Our overnight camp program helps your camper develop an appreciation for nature, a collaborative and self-determined spirit, and the ability to set and reach goals for themselves and with a group. Days are filled with small group adventures driven by a schedule that each group tailors to its interests – as such, no two sessions are ever the same. Every day brings your camper opportunities to develop care and respect for themselves, their friends, our community, and the environment.
