For more than 110 years, the Princeton-Blairstown Center has provided adventure-based, experiential education to vulnerable youth. What began in 1908 as a summer camp run by Princeton University students and faculty has evolved into a wide variety of year-round programs serving nearly 8,000 young people each year. Today our award-winning Summer Bridge Program serves as the centerpiece of the Center's work and provides week-long educational programs to approximately 550 students from low-income
communities in Trenton, Newark, and New York City free of charge.


As a leader in social emotional learning, the Princeton-Blairstown Center offers vulnerable young people the opportunity to leave distractions behind and to build bonds, self-confidence, and leadership skills through unique, adventure-based experiences and personal challenges.


Whether working with our social emotional learning team in a school or with a group of enthusiastic adventure facilitators and instructors in our Summer Bridge Program, students feel supported, empowered, and inspired to change their behaviors and futures for the better.


Generous donors, leadership, staff, partners, and friends have made Princeton-Blairstown Center's challenging work a success throughout our 110-year history. Learn more, and join them!
