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 2018, most of whom are new to Tamarack, have the option of registering for Tamarack’s introductory Acorn sessions, as follows:
Acorn 1: Friday June 28 – Thursday July 11, 2019 (2 weeks) (7-12 year olds)
EXTENDING ACORN 1 SESSION– We encourage families registering for Acorn 1 (Friday June 28 to Thursday July 11, 2019) 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 2019 is to register up front for the full July session.
Acorn 2: Thursday July 11 – Thursday July 25, 2019 ( 2 weeks) (7-12 year olds)
Please note that Acorn 2 campers are welcome to extend for an additional 11 days until Sunday August 4, 2019 or for an additional 3 weeks until the end of camp on Thursday August 15, 2019. Please note that Acorn 2 campers would be at camp for Tamarack’s annual Visitors’ Day on Saturday July 20th.
Acorn 3: Thursday July 25- Sunday August 4, 2019 (11 days) (7-14 year olds)
Acorn 4: (1 week option) Monday August 5, 2018 – Sunday August 11, 2019 (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 will meet the needs of other Tamarack families seeking an awesome, but shorter, session.
Acorn 5: (10 day option) Monday August 5, 2019 – Thursday August 15, 2019 (7 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.
