About Trail Blazers

In 1887, John Ames Mitchell, editor of Life magazine, raised $800 to send 266 children from New York City to the Life Fresh Air Farm in Branchville, Connecticut. Since that first summer, thousands of children and teens have participated in our nature-based summer camp and after-school programs in New York and New Jersey. 

As of January 2024, Trail Blazers’ program portfolio includes Day Camps in Brooklyn and Manhattan, our 130+ year old Overnight Camp in northwest New Jersey, and hands-on environmental after school programming in 5 Brooklyn elementary schools. All of our programs are designed with social emotional learning at the forefront.
