Join us for (Socially Distanced) Spring Into Camp 2021
Thurs May 13th – Grounds and Spaces Saturday May 15th – John Gray and Tamarack Lodges
Thurs May 20th – Grounds and Spaces Saturday May 22nd – Cabins and Waterfront
All 4 days will run from approximately 8am to 4pm – lunch will be provided.
Spring into Camp is devoted to getting Camp Tamarack ready for the summer season. The power and water are turned back on, the waterfront is set up, trails are cleared, and the cabins get cleaned up for the summer.
There is much to do before camp programming begins in a normal spring. Since many of our buildings have been unused for over a year, there is even more for us to do – and many hands make light work.
We will focus on a different building/area each day, and all tools and supplies are provided!
Here is a sampling of what you will get to help with –
