Program Description

This school year children will experience a mix of in-person and remote learning. Although schools have plans in place to start off the year, there is great anticipation that schedules and plans will fluctuate. 

Trail Blazers’ Fall 2020 School Program provides wrap-around support to families during the school day, which will come in a variety of formats. Group Leaders bring camp magic to each part of the day, whether they are supporting remote learning in a home setting, leading after school programming in a school, or leading camp-inspired games and activities outdoors or at the Trail Blazers Center. 

Program Modules:

  • Traditional After School: Offered on-site at a school location
  • Blended Learning Bubbles: Cohorts of up to 6 campers with the same school schedules that come together 2-3 times per week during school hours on remote learning days. 
  • Remote Learning Bubbles: Similar to the Blended Learning Bubbles, except covered 5 days out of the week
  • Virtual Programming: Lead online programming developed by Trail Blazers

Searching for enthusiastic leaders

Group leaders must be prepared to be with their group in multiple locations: classrooms, local parks and gardens, family homes, and the Trail Blazers child care center. Morning, afternoon, and full day schedules are available. A full 5 day commitment is required.

This program is in the very first stage of development. We are looking for true trailblazing Trail Blazers who are flexible, enthusiastic, and eager to develop a fun and engaging program that serves the very important purpose of supporting families during a chaotic time.

  • Have an appreciation of and interest in the natural world
  • Have previous experience working with children
  • Possess very high levels of enthusiasm, leadership, and patience
  • Love taking on and learning from challenges
