CAMP TAMARACK YOUTH SUMMER CAMP STATEMENT:
It is with sincere regret that the Camp Tamarack Board has decided to cancel the entire 2021 summer camp season. Our main objectives are to ensure that campers are kept safe and that everyone has fun. Given the current and projected health and vaccination situations we cannot ensure that everyone will be adequately protected.
This decision has been very difficult for us and we hope you understand our decision and continue to support the camp. We are available for summer rentals and ask for your financial support as our rental income for the past two years has been negligible. We continue working to keep the camp viable.
We have missed our campers, staff and the amazing fun we have had with everyone during every week of camp over the past 40 years. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Stay safe and healthy and continue to follow the directions of our Alberta Health Officials.

Inclusion – Every person is welcome to participate in a variety of impactful programs.
Community – Campers, participants and staff alike develop the most meaningful relationships–ones that last a lifetime. You learn the true meaning of community while at camp. You feel connected with others and gain respect for each person.
Empowerment – participants can express themselves to excel in their interests and be the best version of themselves.
Belonging – all participants have the ability and opportunity to be a member of a group, connect with peers and demonstrate leadership.
Adventure – the opportunity to experience many different challenges and activities while being in a natural environment
