Programs

Each program is tailored to have an emphasis on a specific interest. We aim to stay within our base of knowledge while working with the community at large to offer additional programming to continue to grow and offer dynamic program options. We hope that each child that attends can find a program that is suitable for them to discover their potential and be the best person they can be. Through planned programs with experienced leaders we offer many choices for your camper to try something knew or improve upon their pre-existing skills.

 

Please note, unless otherwise stated, all camp programs are overnight.  We have staff members available in each cabin overnight and additional staff available 24 hours day, if additional support is required.

The goal of our Teen Leadership Programs is to develop confident and competent community and camp leaders. The skills that will be developed over the weekend will open doors for students seeking part time work and increase potential opportunities for future employment with Camp Tamarack. Each participant will also be invited to join us for a week at camp as a volunteer Jr. Teen leader, where they will take on the role of a camp leader for the duration of the week. All participants should be prepared to actively participate in these programs. Their level of participation directly relates to the amount of knowledge and skills they will develop.

Participants will be covering topics including effective communication, problem solving, conflict resolution, what it means to be a leader, goal setting, team work and more, in the context of camp, the workplace, and life. We will develop these skills by partaking in role playing, games and activities, discussions, reflection, debriefing and small projects.

For those that have participated in our program before this is a great opportunity to use your skills and share your experiences with the group. You can even lead a session on a topic you are interested in.

Returning Summer 2020!  Limited space available.  This new camp will step outside of camp for a 3 day, 2 night expedition taking them down to Grande Cache, to participate in a selection of activities from reaching a mountain summit, to rafting down a river all while camping in tents.  Our staff are prepared to teach them the basics and safety of camping during their first few days at camp before they depart on their Expedition, followed by a few rewarding days at camp, where we will discuss and debrief their experiences.  During this program campers will be expected to assist with camp set up, take down, meal preparation and clean up.  Campers will be required to have appropriate hiking footwear, sleeping bag, sleeping pad and rain gear for this trip.
