Camp Kennedy

Explore Northern Michigan

Campers entering 10th grade

Campers enjoy a true Outpost Experience living at Camp Kennedy (Michigan’s Upper Peninsula). The experience offers a wonderfully private and beautiful base camp. The co-ed group will embark on two trips: one four-day backpacking trip and one four-day canoeing trip.

The daily schedule is flexible and the campers help choose their activities. With no clocks or watches, the group sets their own time schedule and without modern devices such as cell phones, campers fully experience the wilderness.

Campers are self-sufficient, planning and cooking all their own meals.

There is something very magical about holding a Shabbat service on the beach or having Havdalah around a roaring campfire with a million stars above.

Camp Kennedy is for campers looking for an amazing, challenging, loving, and once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The program is available for first and second session.

Camp Olmsted

Pioneer a New Adventure!

Campers entering 11th grade

Let's make history with Tamarack Camps' newest program, Camp Olmsted!

Camp Olmsted is located in northern Pennsylvania, in the backyard of Allegheny National Forest. Similar to our other outpost camps, the community will utilize camp as a home-base. They will participate in a hiking and canoe trip.

The daily schedule is flexible and the campers help choose their activities. With no clocks or watches, the group sets their own time schedule and without modern devices such as cell phones, campers fully experience the wilderness.

Campers are self-sufficient, planning and cooking all their own meals.

Two cohorts of 24 campers will live at camp at the same time, although they'll have opposite schedules and run as two separate programs.
