Please note: Due to record inflation there will be a one-time surcharge of $25/week per camper to support a rise in direct costs including counselor pay. Given the important role of our summer staff, we have increased their pay to ensure our ability to hire the very best team for our campers.
Please Note: Ages and grades listed below are as of the 2022-23 school year.

Trailblazers | Grades 3-7
The Trailblazers’ self–guided schedule keeps the experienced camper engaged and asking for more. In addition to participating in all of camp’s activities, every two or three weeks, Trailblazers choose a specialty, which allows for exploration, skill building and meeting new friends. The options change with each cycle, and there’s something for everyone: cheerleading, sports, design lab, adventure challenge, climbing, dance and more. In addition, Trailblazers have free swim daily and a weekly adventure trip.
