Welcome to Camp Trailblazer, the all-new, full-day summer camp option at First Presbyterian Day School for students going into 1st – 6th grade! Camp Trailblazer is a new addition to the over 35 half-day summer camps available at FPD through the Center for Discovery.
FPD is looking forward to hosting campers for outdoor exploration, art & crafts, creative play, S.T.E.M. exploration, devotional time, and other exciting summer fun! Like all of our FPD Center for Discovery camps, Camp Trailblazer will be open to FPD families and the community, so share with friends.
“Camp Trailblazer supplements our current half-day Center for Discovery summer camps and provides an option for parents who are needing full day care and summer fun for their 1st-6th grade children,” says program director, Elizabeth Leslein. “FPD’s 240 acre campus creates the perfect setting for an outdoor-focused camp,” says Leslein. “With multiple indoor and outdoor venues, we are able to accommodate students in small groups while still following social distancing guidelines. We are excited to offer Camp Trailblazer for 1st-6th grade students as well as our other Center for Discovery summer camps.”
