Trailblazers is a hands-on, have fun, experiential summer camp program for 7-9th graders. Teens take on the thrill and independence of being away all day and the convenience and comfort of returning back to their homes and their own beds at night.
Campers depart from Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Monday through Friday, in our fully air-conditioned coach buses for the best array of entertainment, culture and adventure field trips throughout the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area. We’ll visit the usual Trailblazers’ favorites—like Six Flags and Splish-Splash Water Park—plus we’ve added new highlights: an outdoor adventure park, a cutting-edge DNA lab and more!
Campers get a taste of the sleepaway camp experience at Club Getaway in Kent, CT, from July 21 to 24. They will hang out at the coolest campsite around, complete with amazing waterfront and sports facilities. There will be plenty of bonding with buddies around the campfire for a spectacular finish to Session A.
A fun-filled week of exploration around the Boston area is planned from August 10 to 14. Trailblazers takes on the best Beantown has to offer: white-water rafting, a tour of Harvard Square, a hilarious evening of Shear Madness and more! Details to come.
