In order to give younger campers, many of whom have not yet experienced overnight camp, a “taste of Tamarack,” we offer the following exciting opportunities:
While all Tamarack campers have great 3, 4, 5 1/2 and 7-week opportunities from which to choose, campers turning 7 to 14 years old* in 2017, most of whom are new to Tamarack, have the option of registering for Tamarack’s introductory Acorn sessions, as follows:
Acorn 1: Friday June 30 – Thursday July 13, 2017 (2 weeks) (7-12 year olds)
EXTENDING ACORN 1 SESSION– We encourage families registering for Acorn 1 (Friday June 30 to Thursday July 13, 2017) to recognize that extending for the second half of July, while still possible, is no longer guaranteed due to the anticipated popularity of the new Acorn 2 session. Traditionally, a number of Acorn 1 campers wish to extend their stay for the second half of July and, while we are happy to welcome such campers to stay for a longer Tamarack experience if space exists, please note that the only way to guarantee a spot for all of First Month in Summer 2017 is to register up front for the full July session.
NEW Acorn 2: Thursday July 13 – Thursday July 27, 2017 ( 2 weeks) (7-12 year olds)
Based on demand from Tamarack and interested families, we are excited to offer this NEW 15 day, 14 night option. Please note that Acorn 2 campers are welcome to extend for an additional 11 days until Sunday August 6, 2017 or for an additional 3 weeks until the end of camp on Thursday August 17, 2017. Please note that Acorn 2 campers would be at camp for Tamarack’s annual Visitors’ Day on Saturday July 22nd.
NEW Acorn 2/3 combo: Thursday July 13 – Sunday August 6, 2017 (26 days) (7-12 year olds)
We are excited to offer this NEW 26 day session where campers will have the opportunity to be part of our July and August programs. Please note that Acorn 2/3 campers would also be at camp for Tamarack’s annual Visitors’ Day on Saturday July 22nd,
Acorn 3: Thursday July 27- Sunday August 6, 2017 (11 days) (7-14 year olds)
NEW 1 WEEK OPTION Acorn 4: Monday August 7, 2017 – Sunday August 13, 2017 (7 days) (7-14 year olds)
While our 2-week Acorn 1, and new Acorn 2, and 11-day Acorn 3 sessions, have been/continue to be very popular options, we are excited to offer this new session that will meet the needs of other Tamarack families seeking an awesome, but shorter, session. This is a great new standalone session that cannot be extended.
The Acorn program is intended as a one-time introductory opportunity and all Acorn campers are strongly encouraged to sign up to enjoy a 3, 4 or 7-week session as a next logical step.
