In Ontario, the legal age for consumption of alcohol and cannabis is 19. Tamarack’s policy is consistent with the provincial law. Those who choose to consume alcohol or cannabis must do so responsibly. If, for whatever reason, the Camp Directors feel that a guest is acting irresponsibly, they will be asked to leave the camp. No alcohol or cannabis will be permitted in any water vehicle. Cannabis is only to be consumed in designated smoking/vaping areas, not within a cabin.

For safety reasons, we ask that all beverages brought to camp be in recyclable plastic, tetra or aluminum cans.

Although we will have a number of certified first aiders on site, all guests are responsible for their own medication. Our medical centre will have a stock of the basics, but if someone in your family requires specific medication, please bring it yourself. If you need to refrigerate any medication, please let us know.
