During two-week sleep away camp sessions, two or three group leaders accompany 8–10 children at campsites featuring five canvas-covered shelters, a covered table, a campfire circle, and a latrine. They participate in various outdoor adventures and skill-development activities, such as swimming or fishing in the 55-acre Lake Mashipacong, low ropes courses, hiking, and learning outdoor survival skills, each designed to encourage group cooperation. The camp experience culminates in the multi-day Vagabond trip, a hiking or biking expedition along a portion of the Appalachian Trail, or a canoeing excursion along the Delaware River. Transportation from New York City and the immediate New Jersey area is included with this deal. Click here to learn more about the camp and see available session dates.

Trail Blazers

You wake up at sunrise to sunlight filtering through a canopy of towering oak trees. In the distance, you might hear the cry of a hawk, or the laughter of children. Those visiting Trail Blazers share this experience each morning as they emerge from their canvas-covered shelters—part of a rustic experience designed to immerse them into the outdoors. Since 1938, the more than 120-year-old American Camp Association–accredited camp has occupied 1,000 acres of Mashipacong Bogs Preserve, a slice of wilderness encompassing a 55-acre lake and access to the Delaware River and the Appalachian Trail.

The certified counselors guide campers in a decentralized camp experience focused on outdoor education and survival-skills development. They coordinate a range of outdoor programs, including youth camps in which children learning about the ecosystem and honing skills from swimming to outdoor cooking to backpacking. Camps culminate in the Vagabond trip: an extended hike, bike, or canoeing excursion designed to test each camper's abilities when not relying on squirrels for directions. Trail Blazers also coordinates school day trips and full-day or overnight custom lesson plans aligned with the New York and New Jersey State Learning Standards.
