School Break Camps

School Break Camps
Connecting to nature in all seasons

When school is out, Trail Blazers is in! We provide day and overnight programs during the school holidays to explore nature, play outside, and connect with friends both new and old.

Bundle up your campers to spend school breaks outside and connecting to nature in Brooklyn and New Jersey. We’ll spend each day on outdoor adventures learning about our environment, making new friends and seeing old ones, and playing – a lot!

Our day programs are based out of Prospect Park in Brooklyn, with indoor space provided by schools and partner organizations in the PLG neighborhood.

 

Day Programs

We'll explore our parks, gardens, and playgrounds - rain, snow, or shine! As with our other programs, fees based on income tier: $50 - $65/day, 8:00 - 3:30. After care available until 6:00 for a flat fee of $10. For campers in grades Pre K - 5.

Overnight Programs

We'll leave Brooklyn at 8am for our Mashipacong Estate (210 Deckertown Turnpike, Montague, NJ) and return the next day at 8pm. Fees range from $140 - $170/child. For campers in grades 3 - 5.

Registration Information

Program fees must be paid in full by the last day of registration, one week before the starting day of each program. Please reach out to registration@trailblazers.org if you have questions. See you at camp!

We are going to have an amazing time up at our New Jersey campsite, exploring the forest, cooking up some wonderful meals, riding bikes, playing games, singing songs, and enjoying the beauty of camp all day before settling down by a cozy fire at night.

Hiking, biking, low ropes, and digging in the garden are all on the schedule. We’ll also take a cue from our campers — what areas of camp are they most excited to explore? Let’s go there!

Campers will spend the night in our heated Great Hall, falling asleep to a bedtime story and the crackle of the fire in our fireplace.
