Two different 3-day, 2-night weekend experiences are available departing on Friday morning and returning at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, as follows:
Mini-Acorn I – Friday August 4 – Sunday August 6, 2017
Mini-Acorn II – Friday August 11 – Sunday August 13, 2017
Any camper turning 6 to 10 in 2017 (finished SK to Grade 4).
A camper attending Zodiac Day Camp, Tamarack’s partner Toronto day camp, in Summer 2017 for at least one 1 or 2 week session, or a sibling of a Summer 2017 Tamarack camper, who has not previously attended a Mini-Acorn Weekend, may attend at NO COST. All other campers can enjoy the Mini-Acorn Weekend at a reasonable fee of $265.00 (plus HST), which will be fully credited against any Acorn or longer session registered for by such camper in current or subsequent summers.
Our Mini-Acorn campers enjoy Tamarack’s facilities and programs as caring, committed staff provide them with the time of their lives. Campers are immersed in Tamarack’s camp spirit, including participation in a variety of land, water, arts and other programs. Campers join in all aspects of camp life from cheering in the dining hall to fireside sing-songs and roasting marshmallows. All Mini-Acorn campers receive two-way air-conditioned coach transportation. They also Tamarack’s accommodations, food, programs, as well as meeting new friends and developing wonderful camp memories.
Some campers this age are ready for a 7 or 11 day or 2, 3, 4 or 7-week session at Tamarack. Some, however need and enjoy a more gradual introduction and the Mini-Acorn weekend opportunity is perfect for them to “get their feet wet!”
You can register your camper for the Tamarack Mini-Acorn weekend experience through our online registration system. Please note that full payment of $265.00 plus HST is required at time of registration to reserve a space for your camper. For a Summer 2017 Zodiac camper, or a sibling of a Summer 2017 Tamarack camper, the $265.00 plus HST fee will be refunded by October 2017 unless you cancel less than 2 weeks prior to the start of the weekend in which case the deposit will be forfeited. Any other cancelling camper will be charged a $100.00 administration fee for cancelling up to 2 week prior to the start of the weekend and the full $265.00 fee for cancelling less than 2 weeks prior to such weekend. Any cancellation must be received in writing.
The above Mini Acorn Weekends are now a ONE-TIME OPPORTUNITY. Commencing in Summer 2017, campers will only be permitted to attend a Mini Acorn weekend who have not previously attended such a Tamarack weekend experience.
If campers have previously attended a Mini Acorn weekend, we look forward to welcoming them for a 7, 11, 14-day or longer regular Tamarack session as a logical and amazing next step!
