Best Camp Memory: “Being a camper on the Western Trip. I loved camping in tents, visiting national parks and traveling in the big green bus.”
Best Post Camp Tamarack Experience: “Attending Family Fun Day 2013. My family visited my sister, Rachael Pleasant, who was working at Camp Maas that summer. It was so nice to rekindle memories and share the day with my husband, who never had the experience of going to camp.  But the BEST moment was seeing my sister, who after growing-up at Tamarack, was now the supervisor of Charach Sheruth Village.  It was 20 years earlier, while I was working at Brighton as TSS, that her birth was announced after lunch.  All my fellow TSS and I did the Hora in celebration. Seeing her enjoy and appreciate camp as much as I did, was very special.  I look forward to many more Tamarack experiences when my daughter Samantha becomes a camper and perhaps a future staff member too!”
