What is Fall Out of Camp (and Spring in to Camp)?

Fall Out of Camp is a weekend devoted to getting Camp Tamarack ready for the winter months. Most of our 21 buildings do not have heat or insulation, so we need to make sure the water and power is shut off, the windows and doors are closed and locked and ready for Wisconsin wind, snow and temperatures. We also close down the waterfront, which means cleaning out the boat house of anything the animals can make a nest of, and taking those items, along with the watercraft, to their winter storage areas.

Trying something new – Stampin Up

Keep the first weekend of November open for 2019 so we can try this again – it’s a great time to prepare for the Advent season!

New Wheels at Camp

Camp has received 8 new wheels this fall! Attached to those wheels are a new John Deere tractor for mowing+ and new Camp truck for hauling+! The First Baptist Church in Ixonia heard our plight of the riding lawn mower deciding not to work anymore this year and really stepped up to work with Kim and provide Camp a brand new John Deere X570 that will mainly be used for mowing grass in those hard to reach places that the big tractor just can’t get, but is too big for a push mower to handle.
