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 2021, most of whom are new to Tamarack, have the option of registering for Tamarack’s introductory Acorn sessions, as follows:
Acorn 1: Friday July 2, 2021 – Thursday July 15, 2021 (2 weeks) (7-12 year olds)
EXTENDING ACORN 1 SESSION– We encourage families registering for Acorn 1 (Friday July 2, 2021 to Thursday July 15, 2021) to recognize that extending for the second half of July, while still possible, is no longer guaranteed due to the popularity of the 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 2021 is to register up front for the full July session.
Acorn 2: Thursday July 15 – Thursday July 29, 2021 ( 2 weeks) (7-12 year olds)
Please note that Acorn 2 campers are welcome to extend for an additional 11 days until Sunday August 8, 2021 or for an additional 3 weeks until the end of camp on Thursday August 19, 2021. Please note that Acorn 2 campers would be at camp for Tamarack’s annual Visitors’ Day on Saturday July 24th.
Acorn 3: Thursday July 29 – Sunday August 8, 2021 (11 days) (7-14 year olds)
Our popular Acorn 3 session can be extended for an additional 7 days (August 9th-15th) or 11 days (August 9th-19th).
Acorn 4: Monday August 9, 2021 – Sunday August 15, 2021 (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 session that meets the needs of other Tamarack families seeking an awesome, but shorter, session.
Acorn 5: Monday August 9, 2021 – Thursday August 19, 2021 (11 days) (7-14 year olds)
The Acorn 5 session allows campers to experience 10 action packed days including the final few days of camp which are filled with some major camp highlights.
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.
