Scholarships: Financial assistance is available; just email Kevin here. No explanation needed.
COVID Testing: Please consider a preventative rapid COVID test over the weekend to ensure your child is healthy prior to departure. This is only a suggestion and not a requirement.
Since building community is one of our goals, we welcome parents to participate. There are many opportunities for you to help, from sending evening snacks, to coming to camp for a half day, full day, or overnight. If you are interested click here: Volunteer Sign Up. Though camp provides our young people with an evening snack, we find with all the activities and walking, they are often hungrier than anticipated. We welcome donations for evening snacks on the same Google sheet (note the tabs on the bottom of the spreadsheet).
If your child will be taking medication while at camp, give specific written instructions and the exact amount of medication for the four days in a ziplock baggie to the front office the morning we leave (9/11). If they have an “as needed” medication, any extra will be returned to the student to pack in their gear on departure day.
Food from Home
Camp Tamarack maintains a kosher kitchen which restricts ALL outside food from coming into the dining hall and will accommodate food restrictions. We have taken a count of students with dietary restrictions in class. In fact, food is not allowed in the cabins either, so please do not send food with your child.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this rather lengthy email and for entrusting your kids to us. We truly enjoy and are grateful for the opportunity to get to know your kids in this way. If you have any questions please contact Joe or Cindy.
