Camp Somers

Trailblazer Day Camp Confirmation Packet

Congratulations on registering for camp  This confirmation packet contains all of the key information you need for camp, and the forms you must complete and bring to orientation.


Orientation is highly recommended for Trailblazer participants and parent(s). Orientation is essential so both the Scout and parent(s) have a clear understanding of the program and the requirements to make the Scout's participation successful. Orientation also gives parents the opportunity to submit all necessary paperwork as well as to assist the Scout in completing a schedule if he has not done so already. All Scouts and their parents should plan on attending an orientation session prior to attending their first session at Trailblazer Day Camp.

Sessions will be held at Camp Somers. Drop in any time during the hours below:

  • Saturday June 27, 2015 (10:00 am - 12:00 noon)
  • Thursday July 9, 2015 (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)
  • Thursday July 16, 2015 (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)
  • Thursday July 23, 2015 (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)
  • Thursday July 30, 2015 (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

Scouts should attend the orientation in their swim suits as they are given the opportunity to attempt the BSA swimmer test. Changing facilities are available. Please bring a towel. 

If you have any questions regarding orientation, please call 973-347-3266.
