Trail Blazers ECO Explorers program is for all 4th and 5th grade campers (1 smallcamp per site).

Throughout the summer, campers will have unique opportunities to explore outdoor locations in and outside of NYC, including an overnight adventure at our Camp in NJ. (2 day, 1 night)

We’ve updated our curriculum for this age group to include themed group challenges, opportunities for ECO Explorer smallcamps to come together for special activities, and to connect the weekly themes to climate change.

why choose us

Are you looking for an exciting summer camp where your child will develop valuable life skills, build meaningful relationships and have a ton of fun as they spend their days completely outdoors? Look no further than Trail Blazers!



Many camps are planned down to the second and don’t allow time to wander off course, whereas at Trail Blazers we encourage this curiosity and desire to EXPLORE! We are the pioneers of decentralized programming. Each small group develops their own personalized schedule that can be tailored to meet the needs of the group. Happen upon some tadpoles in the park, let’s stop and observe for a bit. Exploration is a great way to learn.



Each week offers an environmentally focused theme, from “Camp ROCKS” to “Making Waves.” We’ll learn all about our planet, all the living things it is home to, and how best to take care of it! Campers will engage in hands-on activities focused on developing hard and valuable life skills. We’ll practice basic survival skills, knot-tying, plant and animal identification, and more! At Trail Blazers we fully embrace the outdoors. Rain or shine, provided it is safe, we will opt outside. We spend our days at camp exploring the Parks or engaged in an exciting excursion.



We strive to make camp accessible to everyone! We serve a diverse community of campers and search for staff from all backgrounds that bring unique skills and experiences with them to camp. We believe there is tremendous value in learning to interact with those that are different from us.

Testimonials From Summers Past

“This was the best decision of our summer. Our son truly flourished: when we dropped him off the first day my son was shy and timid, and when we picked him up the last day he was confidently making jokes, teaching us new songs, and showing us how to tie knots!! .” 


“My daughter just finished her last week at Trail Blazers. We originally signed up for one week, and she loved it so much that we ended up going to four weeks total. She had a blast! Made new friends, saw old friends, LOVED being outside in the beautiful park. I felt like she was safe and in good hands. It was a really amazing summer camp experience!!!”


“Our son taught our family the Milkshake camp song, we loved it. His agency and confidence had only grown and the time in nature has been such a compliment to his love of animals and the outdoors. Trail Blazers has helped him with tenacity. He encourages me and others to ‘keep trying, you can do it’.” 



“Well done! Our daughter loved her experience thoroughly. The counselors were friendly and greeted her warmly every morning! The projects were creative and she loved learning about marine life, using the underwater cameras, playing fish bingo and more! I love how engaged she was and hearing about all she was learning about her environment. Thanks for a terrific experience!”
