With a 1 to 4 staff to camper ratio, we offer campers ages 8-12 a wide variety of activities -- from tee shirt printing to ceramics, paddle boarding to snorkeling, and extreme sports to camping, just to name a few! With a rotating activities schedule, there’s never a dull moment. You’ll find campers making friendship bracelets or ice cream, learning archery, on a camp-wide scavenger hunt, canoeing on our lake, hiking and exploring, and jumping on our water trampoline. And of course the gaga ball pit is never empty. After dinner, campers participate in the evening olympic games and campfire. The days are full and the days are fun!

This week-long program serves our older campers age 12-13 looking to experience some more adventure than our traditional programming! In the mornings, you'll find Adventure Team slacklining, tree-climbing, and rock-climbing! In the afternoons, campers participate in recreation with our traditional campers swimming on the waterfront or crafting in the Hobby House! In the evenings, campers sleep in tents on site in their own private camping area. Campers also enjoy meals from the kitchen with our traditional campers.
Counselors in Training spend the week paired up with a counselor and learning all about what it takes to be one of our summer camp counselors. They help supervise a cabin, lead daily activities, and get the afternoons to hang out on the lake. This is a great opportunity for a mature camper looking to take on a larger role with more responsibility at camp.
CITs must be entering 9th grade or older and may only enroll for one session as a CIT.
Please see T1D Buddy Camp information for more on being a CIT for that program.
At T1D Buddy Camp, children with type 1 diabetes and their buddies (siblings or friends) have the opportunity to meet all the challenges and adventures offered at Camp Tamarack safely and responsibly. Campers are invited to this active, supportive, and creative community to be inspired in the great outdoors. Medical support staff will be present to ensure a successful camp experience for all T1D campers (entering 3rd-12th grade). Teens have the option of attending as CIT.
