Living technology-free and in the woods helped to build a sense of rugged, pure community. The bonds created between campers and staff, memories made, and adventures had are like no other. I am beyond grateful for my Kennedy experience, and I can truly say that it changed my life.
As an alumni and now a parent, I wouldn’t want my kids anywhere else. They look forward to their time at camp for 340 days of the year! Thank You!
As my daughter wrote in her last letter home I have never been more happy! You can’t ask for anything more! Camp truly is the greatest place.
My happiest memories were my summers at Tamarack. Everyone who stood up in my wedding were friends I met during my camp days.
It is amazing to watch your campers grow up and enjoy the same magic that you did as a camper!
My child came home and would have liked to get right back on the bus to go back! He talked about how much he loved his counselors and the friends he made. It was a great summer for him.
I send my kids to Tamarack every year for the past 6 years. From the second they get on the bus headed to their second home in Ortonville until they are returned to me, I do not worry about them. I know that they are safe. I know that they are growing. I know that they are making lifelong friendships. Thank you!
Both of my children had an amazing time at camp this summer. I just wanted to say thank you to the amazing staff for making their first time awesome! They were both so nervous when they got on the bus and were so sad about being away from camp when they got home! Overall, camp was a huge success!
It was incredible. My son came home so confident and had an amazing experience. He grew independent, aware of others, and has memories that are life-lasting. Almost 2 weeks home and Agree experiences and smiles keep showing up.
Being a Tamarack staff member means having the best job on earth at the greatest place on earth, getting to change people’s lives daily and making memories and friends forever!
