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 and Leader-In-Training Programs serve as the centerpiece of the Center's work, and provide educational programs to approximately 550 students from low-income
communities in Trenton and Newark, NJ free of charge.


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


When working with our enthusiastic facilitators, students feel supported, empowered, and inspired to change their lives and futures for the better.


Generous donors, leadership, staff, partners, and friends have made Princeton-Blairstown Center's challenging work a success throughout our 111-year history. Learn more, and join them!
