week-long overnight camp


With a 1 to 4 staff to camper ratio, we offer campers ages 8-14 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 paper beads, 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!

In order to meet safety standards, Summer Camp will be run at a reduced capacity. As a result, we will not be offering our Counselor in Training (CIT) program this summer. We have increased our camper age range to 8-14 years old so our older campers can experience another summer of fun!




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.
