Lincoln Summer Camp

Lincoln Parks and Recreation – Lincoln, MA

Trailbreakers Camp Grades 8 – 9

Trailbreakers is designed for our oldest campers who are ready to break out as they either enter their last year of middle school, or who are ready to break into high school.

This program, like the Trailblazer program that precedes it, focuses on off-campus activities that provide new experiences and challenges that continue to refresh and renew the camp experience for our older campers.

The Trailbreakers will head out on 4 trips each week. The schedule is designed to maximize campers time outdoors. Our focus is providing experiences that get these young teens unplugged and more connected to each other and nature. Three of the trips each week coincide with the Trailblazers and one trip each week will be a Trailbreakers exclusive. The pictures below show some of the exclusive trips from the last few summer.

During the one day each week campers spend on campus they will engage in a community service project. Campers will work on a project that gives back to our community while teaching them about work ethic and job responsibility. We partner with local organizations such as Codman Farm, St Vincent’s Food Pantry, The Lincoln Rural Land Foundation, and the Conservation Department to scale our impact.

We are currently working on our trips for 2023. To see where we are planning on going keep scrolling down. Please note the trips are subject to change at any time.
