About Blazing Trails

          Located at Pathfinder K-8 School in West Seattle, Blazing Trails is a non-profit before-and-after-school childcare program for school-age children ages five through twelve. We also offer a summer day camp enrichment program.
 

          Since 1995, we have been dedicated to supporting families in our community as we help each child develop good communication skills and celebrate their own uniqueness. We maintain a space that encourages intellectual, physical and social growth with respect for others and the natural environment.
