How will you spend Labor Day Weekend?
LL Weekend
Spend Labor Day Weekend wrapping up the summer with family, friends, and nature

Named after Life Camps, Trail Blazers’ prior name, Life Lifers (LL) Weekend is a beloved annual tradition where alumni and families come back to camp for one last dip in Lake Mashipacong and one more hike on the trails before the autumn chill sets in. You’re invited to spend a day or the entire weekend unplugging from technology and enjoying the company of old and new friends. Be sure to keep posted for updates as we get closer to the date, click here for info.

Other FAQ's

My pet loves the outdoors! Can they come?

We love animals at Trail Blazers. However, Trail Blazers already has plenty of wildlife and we prefer your pet stays at home.

I use a wheelchair or walkers or crutches to get around. Is the site accessible for mobility impaired persons?

Trail Blazers’ camp site is outdoors and very rustic: with dirt trails, no paved roads, and plenty of hills. This may not be the best environment for those needing wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, strollers, etc.

How do I get to Trail Blazers?

You can use Google Maps at http://maps.google.com to get driving directions. Our address is 210 Deckertown Turnpike, Montague, NJ 07287. We are between mile markers 4 and 5.

I don’t drive, is there a way to arrange transportation?

If we have enough requests, we may organize a van ride. Please let us know if  you are interested in a ride by emailing tcaton@trailblazers.org.

Can I bring my own camper/RV/tent?

Our rustic site does not have the capacity to handle campers and other kinds of recreational vehicles (RVs). You may bring a tent, please contact tcaton@trailblazers.org for details.

What should I bring?

Ticks are prevalent – please bring insect repellent. Feel free to bring your own sleeping bag/linens. There is a Walmart nearby where you may do some food shopping as well as pick up other essentials.

What if it rains?

A person once said there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inadequate clothes! Trail Blazers runs rain or shine. Feel free to wear rain boots and ponchos.

Why is it called LL Weekend?

Trail Blazers’ original name was Life’s Camps and alumni who camped before the name change are called Life Lifers! This weekend is a tradition, coming together to reconnect before the summer ends. Learn more fun TBC history facts at http://trailblazers.org/history.
