Your Helping Hands Keep Us Going
PEOPLE MAKE TRAIL BLAZERS POSSIBLE, BE A PART OF THE COMMUNITY THAT KEEPS CAMP GOING
Camp is more than time spent in nature. Camp is also a community that spans generations, geographic location, and professional expertise! There is a place for everyone – from alumni, to current campers and their families, to neighbors, to corporate partners – to roll up our sleeves together and help keep Trail Blazers going for current and future campers!
Whether you prefer being behind the scenes or in the midst of the activity, whether you have just one afternoon to spare or are able to dedicate several hours a year, you can have a direct impact by being an active part of our community and lending a hand.
There are several meaningful ways for you to use your skills (or even build new ones!) to create lasting impact, some of which are highlighted below. For more details, contact Tiffany Caton, Dir. Development & Communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spend a day at Mashipacong Estate in Sussex County, NJ, supporting some of the operational elements that make camp possible. Examples of projects include:
There are so many reasons to volunteer! You may have some extra time on your hands and want to do something worthwhile? Or maybe you are looking to expand your network or grow your skill set, or are looking to support your community? The reason for choosing to volunteer your time will inform the type of volunteer opportunity you seek out.
For us, volunteers give us an opportunity to more deeply connect with our community, and build a network of friends and supporters that helps us move Trail Blazers’ mission forward
What Our Volunteers Say
“We love Trail Blazers. I like that it’s not super fancy with tons of fancy equipment. I like that it is about surviving with what’s right in front of them. It uses nature itself as a teacher. And the diversity of campers and counselors.”~ Parent, 2020
“Trail Blazers Overnight Camp provided a rich, traditional outdoor camp experience for our daughter. The core values of the program, including the focus on developing independence, were evident in her behavior upon return and have stayed with her to this very day.” ~ Parent, 2019
