When you support Trail Blazers, you help create lasting impact:
“Not everyone has the privilege to go to camp and meet people who will become their lifelong friends and mentors, and I thank everyone who helped make camp possible for young people like me. Through camps like Trail Blazers we can work to ensure that all young people understand that whatever they strive to be, that they hold that potential inside them, and they create their own road map for success. Camp is how I learned to read that map and how hundreds of young people just like me will learn to read theirs too. Thank You.” -Alumna, 2019
90% of Trail Blazers campers step into the world more prepared for its challenges. Learn even more about how your donation directly helps young people thrive on our results page here.
