TOP NEW JERSEY SLEEPAWAY CAMP: Trail Blazers is a Top Sleepaway Summer Camp located in Montague Township New Jersey offering many fun and enriching Sleepaway and other camp programs. Trail Blazers also offers CIT/LIT and/or Teen Leadership Opportunities, too.

CAMP LOCATION: Trail Blazers' sleep away camp property is located in Montague, New Jersey, about five miles east of the Pennsylvania border. The camp is situated between High Point State Park and Stokes State Forest, close to the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware River.

Trail Blazers' day camp program based in beautiful Prospect Park, with three different drop off/pick up points available in Brooklyn. This program is heavily play-focused, with field trips around the city and day trips to our overnight camp included.

CAMP FACILITIES: Overnight campers experience life in the outdoors by living in teepees and canvas hogans in family-like small camps of 8 to 10 peers. Every small camp is equipped with canvas shelters housing up to 4 campers, running water for drinking and washing, a non-flushing latrine, and a fire circle for nightly pow wows, songs, and games. There are two centrally-located shower houses for daily hot showers, and a dining hall where breakfast and dinner are served family style.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: We believe that going outside is the best way for young people to grow within. That belief has been central for 130 years of helping young people develop the values and skills essential for productive citizenship.

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.

As an ACA accredited camp, we insure that all staff are trained professionals in their area. We certify American Red Cross Life Guards and recruit staff from all over the country and the world with a passion for youth development and the outdoors. Each staff member undergoes a skill screening, intensive interview, reference check, and background check. Staff also complete a two-week pre-camp training course covering all aspects of the Trail Blazers program to prepare for the important job of looking after your child's physical and emotional safety.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The Leader-in-Training program at Trail Blazers is designed for current high school students who wish to develop leadership skills through active participation in different aspects of the Trail Blazers Sleep Away program. Our Leaders in Training develop problem-solving skills, teamwork, and environmental consciousness as they learn how to manage the responsibility that comes with being a role model at camp. A separate application is required for participation in this program.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Part of Trail Blazers' mission is to make camp affordable and accessible to all. As a not-for-profit, we offer extensive scholarship and financial aid.
