Happy Trails Camp is an exciting and fun-filled overnight summer camp program for children in the foster care system.
Youth ages 7 – 17 are invited to spend a week in the great outdoors hiking, canoeing, rock-climbing, dancing, singing silly songs by a campfire, star gazing, and much more!
By taking part in camp activities with other children in foster care, our campers can escape the stress and loneliness of their circumstances, and can focus on being kids. Happy Trails Camp is all about joy and friendship and memories designed to last a lifetime. View our sample schedule of events here.
Under the supervision of our experienced Camp Director, we have a team of trained and enthusiastic counselors, as well as a nurse who is available on-site. More than half of our camp counselors are former foster youth, which provides our campers with the unique opportunity of being mentored by young adults who can relate to and address their problems and fears.

Happy Trails is committed to providing continuity and stability for our campers. We organize several camper reunion events throughout the year. In addition, we have several older youth programs available for our teenage campers. Even when our campers reach 18, they can still remain in the Happy Trails family as summer camp counselors!
