Activities at Camp

Check out all the activities we have to offer at Camp Tamarack.

Creative Arts

A space where campers can find their inner artist and create freely. Offering both structured and unstructured creative arts activities allows for individuals to choose the activity that is best for them.

  • Arts and crafts
  • Theatre
  • Music
  • Cooking and baking
  • Tie dye
  • Singing/voice
  • Dance

Adventure Course

Our Challenge by Choice course allows campers to step outside their comfort zone in a peer supported environment. The camper calls the shots on how high they go, if they take the step off the platform to zip, and in trusting their cabin mates when out on the Low Ropes course. We will always offer words of encouragement, support and praise as they complete each element.

  • Low ropes
  • Team building
  • Giant swing
  • Group initiatives
  • Climbing tower

Outdoor Adventure

Outdoor Adventure allows the campers to connect and feel safe in the natural environment. We aim to provide them with a wealth of skills and opportunity to be proactive in nature and leave no trace behind them.

  • Nature
  • Orienteering
  • Hikes
  • Wilderness survival (fire building, shelter building, outdoor cookery)
  • Archery
  • Knot tying

Group Games

A fun escape from direct learning to the ease of indirect skill building. Group games allow campers gain independence and leadership skills most when they are working together and creating opportunity amongst themselves.

  • Gaga Ball
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • 9 Square in the air
  • Circle games
  • Backpocket games
  • Parachute

Water Activities

We don’t have access to swimmable water on our property but the importance of it has not been forgotten. For our overnight programs we utilize local pools including Beaverlodge, Eastlink and Bear Creek Outdoor Pool, we ensure each camper has the opportunity to swim once through the week. For our day camps, we ensure program breaks if the weather gets too hot and have water games with our endless supply of sponges and cups.

Off Site Programming and Special Guest Facilitators

We know we can’t offer everything, but thanks in part to the support of our community we are able to partner with some amazing local organizations and businesses.

  • Wapiti White Water Kayaking
  • Nitehawk Year-Round Adventure Park – mountain biking and hiking
  • Alternative Physical Education (APE) Parkour
