Who Attends Trailblazer Day Camp?

First Year Scouts BSA

Trailblazers can be first year Scouts who are either not ready for a resident camp experience, or they want a taste of BSA summer camp before committing to a week of resident camping with their troop.

Older Scouts BSA

Trailblazers can be older Scouts who want to be at camp to work on merit badges, complete partials or work on advancement. Older Scouts often come to day camp because they have evening activities or commitments that do not allow them to stay overnight.

Scouts BSA Who Want An Additional Week of Fun

Other Scouts come to camp as a Trailblazer or overnight camper then sign up for an additional week of Trailblazer day camp to continue having fun! The Trailblazer program for all Scouts BSA provides a unique and customized camp experience based on each individual Scout’s needs.
