CAMP TAMARACK YOUTH SUMMER CAMP STATEMENT:
We want to keep all of our Camp Tamarack Families aware of the current situation for the 2021 summer camp season.
We are planning to have a day camp program during July and August and are currently interviewing and hiring staff. We invite anyone interested in working at the camp this summer to apply. However our plans are dependent on the health situation at that time, and so we cannot make a definite statement now as to what will happen. We will keep you informed on this website and through Facebook.
We anticipate opening registrations about mid-May once we know more about what the projected health situation may be from June – August. The costs to relaunch the camp program are considerable and if you can make an on-line donation or a mail-in donation or organize a fund raiser or help in other way, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-538-4694). Your support is sincerely appreciated.
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.

Tamarack's Core Values
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
