Before Camp Starts
The Summer 2019 Camper/Parent Guide with specific details regarding required clothing and supplies, bussing, baggage, policies, visitors’ day and related issues, together with certain forms to be completed, will be sent to each family in the spring.
Each year, we buy new equipment and supplies for our great programs. We also build/renovate facilities to enhance the Tamarack experience.
Tamarack’s popular Visitors’ Day enables family members and friends to enjoy each camper’s fun, success and accomplishments at Tamarack while meeting their child(ren)’s counsellors. Visitors’ Day is on Saturday July 20th 2019. Specific timing and other detailed information will be available on our website and in the Summer 2019 Camper/Parent Guide.
Tuck Shop & Snacks
- Each camper will have the opportunity twice per week to order a treat (chocolate or granola bar, chips, fruit snacks, etc.) as part of the camp fee.
- We are pleased to continue our TUCK SHOP, additional treats and healthy snack alternatives, as well as certain other sundries. Each family will be asked to deposit a suggested amount of “Tuck Credit”, and campers will have designated opportunities to make these purchases against the tuck credit. Unused tuck credit will be refunded after the summer.
- Each camper and staff member on a daily basis receives a mid-afternoon snack (fruit, frozen snack, etc.) and an evening snack, aside from other special snacks
