We’re so happy you’re here.

Whether you’re new to our community or simply new to the experience of being a camper parent, welcome!

At Tamarack Camps, we understand the decision to send your child away from home for the first time is not easy. That’s why we’re here every step of the way to make you and your child feel at home at our summer home.

Nearly one-third of our campers come from out of state—from Hawaii to Alaska, Florida, Arizona, California and beyond. So, if you are new and from out of state, you are not alone! We are a family from near and far and we will ensure that your camper feels like Tamarack Camps is their home away from home.

Staying true to our mission, we offer scholarships for Jewish families living in Michigan based on need. Scholarships are available for all programs offered throughout the summer.

Explore our many programs and choose the one that works best for your family:

For first-time campers, we offer a $500 discount for Full-Session Campers and a $250 discount for Mini Campers. To see more registration incentives, click here. (Israel and TSS/JC participants do not qualify.)

Every month, we host Talkin’ Tamarack informational meetings to discuss camp, share videos and talk about anything and everything camp. We’d love for you to join us—sign up to attend an informational meeting today. Or if you would rather a one-on-one meeting, our directors are always glad to meet with individual campers and families.

Have questions? Our Camp Directors are always here to answer any questions you may have.
