CITY AND OUTDOOR BASED… LEARN TO WORK… LEARN TO LEAD

Our offering of leadership programs  for teens age 15-18, with leadership opportunities at camp, in the city, during the summer and year-round

There is something for every budding leader at Trail Blazers.

The Overnight Leaders in Training (LT) experience is grounded in our classic Overnight Camp program and takes place during the summer.

The CIT program, is a three year program starting at 16, with summer spent at camp, and year-round opportunities for growth, as well as earn some money.

Youth 16-24 can join Trail Blazers through the Youth Employment Program (SYEP) for an exciting opportunity to develop leadership skills and gain work experience at our day camp.

We partner with local high schools for a year-round internship program, placing high school juniors and seniors in our after school programs, while being developed as young leaders and examples for our campers.

Why Choose Us

All our leadership programs are designed with our participants’ futures in mind.  The programs are built around real-world experiences and practical skills while having an unforgettable experience. Outdoor components are an essential element of each program, as we believe deepens the experience.

The programs are not mutually exclusive and can overlap here and there. We aim to engage all our leadership campers year-round, in the city and up at camp.

Importantly, leadership development included financial incentives and most of our programs provide stipends or pay to the young leaders.
