Welcome to Virtual Camp Trailblazers!
Virtual Camp Trailblazers turns the fun and friendship of camp into online camp sessions with campers from across the country!
Each week kids with facial differences and their siblings can join AboutFace staff and volunteers to explore the theme of the week! Campers ages 6 and up can join.
Virtual Camp Trailblazers will run for five weeks and begins July 7. Sessions will be held three days per week live on Zoom for 60-90 minutes.
Before camp starts, you will receive a package of all the supplies your kids will need for camp!
Your kids can attend as many sessions as they want for the cost of $80 for the entire summer. Subsidized rates are also available.

Registrations must be received by June 22, any receieved after that date may not receive their camp-in-a-box pacakge in time.
Each session will have several components:
A camper welcome and introduction, themed activity, a virtual campfire that allows campers to show off a talent as well as our BEADS program: a program that gives campers the opportunity to reflect on their sessions and earn some meaningful beads for their camp bracelet.
