Trailblazers (Ages 5-9)
2019 Information Available Soon!
Trailblazers will be held at Wapping Parks & Recreation Facility this year!
ACA Accredited. Welcome to Trailbalzers! Here, you will find a similar set up to our original Camp Discovery on a more intimate scale. Trailblazers is perfect for a child who enjoys to play games, stay active, and prefers to socialize in smaller settings.
This camp fills each day wit active games, sports, arts & crafts, teamwork and group interaction. Campers will generally swim at the VMP Pool twice a week, plus go on exciting weekly field trips, and see spectacular entertainers. Add to that a first-rate staff focused on safety and ensuring campers make the most of each day, and you have a recipe for one amazing summer!
This camp is open to residents of South Windsor only. Camp fills quickly, so be sure to register early.
To ensure safety and appropriateness of all programs, we maintain strict age guidelines for all camps. If your child is during 5 during a camp week, they can sign up for Trailblazers starting that session. If your child is turning 10 during a camp week, they can attend Trailblazers until that week is over.
Cost of camp is TBD per week, based on a 5-day week. Payment plans available online.
