"That 2020 Award Winning Camp Tamarack Staff"

         - Chris Kelley

Join our Team!

We are hiring Instructors who can commit to our 2021 season from Jan 6th - October 29th. We are looking for people with a desire to teach and mentor youth who bring different lived and professional experiences to our team. At Camp Tamarack we host Outdoor School, Summer Camp, and classroom programs, providing youth of all ages with experiential opportunities that promote personal growth and a better understanding of the environment, communities, and world that surrounds them.  

Due to COVID-19, we’ve been flexible and creative in adapting our programming in 2020. We hosted virtual Outdoor School, on-site day programming, and weekend backpacking trips. Though we can’t predict what this coming year will look like, we are anticipating our spring Outdoor School will not be on-site, but rather online or in the form of classroom visits, we are opening registration for on-site summer camp programming, and we expect to host residential programming for Fall Outdoor School. 

Why Work at Camp Tamarack?

  • Compared to other residential camps where you work from the time you wake up until the time you go to bed, at Camp Tamarack staff split day shifts and evening program shifts.

  • Wellness stipend! After a year of employment, we offer a wellness stipend to put towards health care, a gym membership, exercise equipment or class, or whatever you do to promote your personal wellness!

  • We promote from within! When hiring for administrative and managerial staff, we internally hire.

  • We invest in staff professional and personal development.

  • We host fun monthly activities within our camp community!
