Special Programs, Theme Days and Camp Spirit

At Tamarack, we’re all about camp spirit and part of what makes our summer camp program so special is how often we get to flaunt it! The infusion of special programs and theme days only serve to let our camp spirit shine through and to enhance Camp Tamarack’s multifaceted overnight summer camp program.

Showcasing a terrific blend of fun, fair competition and team-building, these designated special activity days allow us to mix up and supplement the typical camp routine and make every camper’s experience as unforgettable as it can be. Tamarack’s special programs and theme days include the Tamarack World Games, other all-day programs, Carnival Day, swim and tennis marathons, Unit Half Day programs, inter-camp trips/competitions, triathlon events, overnight trips, mountain bike excursions, white water rafting trips, “I.C.E.” (Individual Cabin Experience) Nights, drive-in movie nights, outdoor concerts and so much more.

Every summer, for one afternoon, Tamarack transforms itself into an extraordinary carnival. With special snacks like cotton candy and snow cones, inflatable slides and castles, obstacle courses and carnival games. The Tamarack Carnival is a day your child will never forget.
