2023 Summer Staff

At Camp Tamarack, we believe that being able to provide an inclusive summer camp experience, starts with being an inclusive employer. What does this mean? Our hired staff are trained members, not only local to Grande Prairie, but also from communities throughout the world. Our diverse team is made up of incredible people of different ethnicities, individuals with disabilities, as well as members of 2SLGBTQ+. Providing an inclusive workplace has many benefits, including ensuring that each and every camper will have a leader that they feel they can connect with. As we continue to grow at Camp Tamarack, our core values remain the same, and we will continue to aim on providing an inclusive and barrier free outdoor camping experience through accessible, fun-filled and innovative programs, for people of all ages and abilities.
