As children grow, they are encouraged by our supportive staff to broaden their experiences and see what the world around them has to offer.

Trailblazer Camp is designed to accommodate the special interests of children between the ages of 7 and 12. Campers begin each day with 5-6 periods of activities with their group. Some of these activities include instructional swimming (matches FCA curriculum), computer, tennis, archery, art, drama, crafts, and sports. Older campers are invited to select an afternoon Pathfinder specialty activity in which to participate (Pathfinders will be updated in the Spring). Campers ages 7 to 10 are placed in coed groups according to age; while 11 and 12 year olds are grouped by single gender. All campers are supervised by head and assistant counselors.
