If your kid pines for the ultimate sleepaway camp, this 125-year-old summer program maintains all its traditions through experiential outdoor programming: hiking, fishing and nightly powwows around a crackling campfire. The programs at Trail Blazers are based on the camp’s six core values—being a friend, being healthy, learning to learn, self-growth, being a steward and learning to survive—and they’re still fun! Small groups of eight to 10 campers vote on activities like archery, hiking, mountain biking and canoeing, so no two sessions are ever the same. City kids get tons of fresh air living in teepees with their fellow campers and cooking their meals alfresco. Ages 7–17 (some programs 12 and up).
