Trail Blazers



Trail Blazers is an award-winning youth development organization that, for 125 years, has touched the lives of thousands of young people from New York and New Jersey. Each summer, over 400 children attend Trail Blazers core program, the Outdoor Experiential Education Adventure, a unique sleep away and day camp program. Since 1887, Trail Blazers has sponsored thousands of children to take part in these outdoor adventures where learning happens experientially -- by living and playing together, and experiencing the challenges and opportunities the natural environment offers. Today, Trail Blazers remains the second oldest summer program in existence in the United States, and the first to offer environmental education.

Mission: Trail Blazers facilitates the development of values and life skills essential for productive citizenship in youth through outdoor experiential education, year-round mentoring and leadership training.
