Our days are packed with survival, wilderness and outdoor activities, encouraging cooperative learning, camper-driven exploration and physical activity. Through all of this, we focus on our six core values – Being a Friend, Being Healthy, Learning to Learn, Self-Growth, Being a Steward, and Learning to Survive – all while having an outstanding time.
Lunch is brought from home. Trail Blazers provides snacks each day.
At Trail Blazers, every day brings a new adventure! Activities include swimming, canoeing, archery, nature crafts, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and getting our hands dirty while exploring the outdoors.
Trail Blazer Camps are American Camp Association accredited: all staff are trained professionals in their area of expertise. Trail Blazers certifies American Red Cross Life Guards and recruits staff from all over the country and the world who have a passion for working with youth in the outdoors. Each staff member undergoes an intensive interview and reference check. Before children arrive, staff complete a thorough training, covering all aspects of the Trail Blazers program, to prepare for the important job of looking after your child’s physical and emotional safety.
Montague Day Camp is for children in K through Grade 7. Campers spend time in small, co-ed, family-like groups.
Camp starts each day at 9am (drop off between 9 and 9:30) and ends at 4pm. Extended hours from 4:00 until 6.00 are available for an additional fee.
There are 9 weeks of programming. Each week, your child may choose to attend 2 days (Tuesday and Thursday), 3 days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) or 5 days. ***Please note that while you will be asked to select specific days during the registration process, we are able to be flexible with your scheduling needs during the summer.***

From traditions, songs, games, and leadership skills, what we learn will last a lifetime. This introduction week offers a little bit of everything.
Crouch low and discover the world beneath your feet. Look high and notice what creatures are playing in the trees. This week, we learn about the great outdoors!
Our brave builders will be working together on small boats, birdhouses, and even teepees that we can use for shelter.
Let’s forget about our brushes and make art with our hands. Bring out the rain boots and play in the mud. Who knew getting all dirty can be so fun?
Let us put on our imaginary scuba suits and dive in to the deepest parts of the sea to learn about the different kinds of animals that live in water.
Sometimes the day is bright and sunny, when all of a sudden the skies open up and start pouring…and then you see a rainbow! Let's find out why.
We will explore the ways life adapts to its environment – the qualities, skills and tricks that ensure survival.
Where does our food come from? How does it grow in our gardens, and how does it transform from ingredients into delicious snacks?
Let us move our feet and body to the sound of drums, let us get our heart racing with an obstacle course. This is a week full of moving and shaking!
Understanding that every family's financial situation is different, Montague Day Camp is offered at four tier levels based on household income .
