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

Check back for the orientation dates.

Orientation is mandatory for Trailblazer participants and parent(s). This session is essential so that both the Scout and the parent(s) have a clear understanding of the program and the requirements to make the Scoutís participation successful. Orientation will include a swim test and a tour of camp. Please wear a swim suit under your clothes and bring a towel.

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