Trailblazer Village Program Philosophy 

Trailblazer is our co-ed Teen Camp village located in The Frontier. Trailblazer offers structured daily activities for campers while also giving them freedom to discover new interests and shape their own camp experiences. Trailblazer is a great transition village for new campers or those coming from our youth programs, as it offers all the variety and excitement of YMCA Storer Camps in a traditional camp experience for teens. Trailblazer’s have Skill Clinics that allow campers to excel in more advanced program areas including Tree Climbing, Equestrian, Paddle Boarding, Team and Target Sports, Creative Arts, Nature, Disc Golf and Sailing. Highlights of the Trailblazer Village include creative teambuilding adventure activities or joining with the Ranch, Outback, and Pathfinder Villages for Pink Flamingo Day or Ranch Hoe Down. Whether it’s discussing leadership topics by the fire or bonding during evening programs, Trailblazer Village allows campers to express their individuality, test their abilities, and focus on community building and personal development. Their self-confidence will grow through mastery of their chosen skill clinics. Through traditional camp activities and village events, teens will experience a sense of community and create lasting friendships. Also check out more offerings for this age group under Specialty Camps.

Cabin/Village Arrangements 

Located in an area of camp called The Frontier, Trailblazers have their own minicamp with a dining hall, waterfront, athletic fields, and adventure course. Trailblazers live in rustic cabins with the Frontier Lodge (dining hall) located at the center of the cabin locations. Restrooms and shower facilities are located in The Frontier Lodge. 

Meals and Nutrition 

The Trailblazer campers eat their meals in Malachi Dining Hall. Meals are served family style with a salad/fruit bar available at every meal. Participants with special diets or allergies are accommodated. The Trailblazer campers are encouraged to drink water throughout the day and at each meal, prior to other beverages. They also enjoy a snack together at the end of their evening activities.
