Farm & Forest Trail Blazers

Trail Blazers is proud to offer a unique farm camp program, combining the best of local farming experiences with our exciting outdoor adventures. Come get your hands dirty and have an unforgettable experience this summer!

Grow it. Cook it. Eat it. Live it.

Farm & Forest campers, ages 8-10, will explore every stop on the journey from farm to table, breaking ground at Trail Blazers’ 1000-acre property in Montague, NJ, partnering with nearby organic farms, learning how to sustainably harvest and prepare fresh food from the farm and expertly explore and forage in the forest. Through a week-long series of challenging group experiences on the farm and at camp, this program will unearth the best nature has to offer.

Daily Activities

Whether it’s working at our community garden, enjoying a woodland picnic, touring on a local farm, or cooking a tasty organic meal with our chef, Farm & Forest campers will have endless opportunities to connect back to the land, make new friends and have an unforgettable experience this summer.

DIG IN: Campers learn about the importance of bees and other pollinators, beekeeping, the science of seeds, soil science, essential elements of farming, seed starting, and all it takes to makes things grow.

LET IT GROW: Explore community gardening, planting, weeding, and organic and local farming initiatives, and learn about sustainable and community supported agriculture straight from the source.

FARM TO FOREST: Learn how to identify mushrooms, berries and other edibles as we spend some time foraging the forest. Campers will learn canning and preserving techniques to enjoy the harvest all year round.

FARM TO TABLE: Celebrate the harvest in a sustainable way as we learn about seasonal eating and menu preparation and why it’s important.
