CAMPaign for Change

Home / Giving / CAMPaign for Change

Whether it is through increased confidence, discovering a life passion, developing new friendships, or strengthening their Jewish identity, because of their experiences at camp, Tamarack campers and staff are forever impacted and forever changed. In the spirit of collective change seen year after year in our campers and staff, we have launched a new CAMPaign for Change. This initiative involves campers and staff in the Jewish tradition of tzedakah, by teaching the joy of sharing, volunteering, and giving back.

As part of learning what it means to live Jewishly, campers and staff participated in programs to deepen his or her understanding of our shared responsibility to help one another. Campers also built and decorated tzedakah boxes in the shape of the Tamarack Camps iconic green bus, and we now invite our campers and our community to collect change to fill these boxes. Each contribution will support camper scholarships, helping to ensure that every child can spend a life-changing summer at the “Greatest Place on Earth.”

Join campers and staff and begin “collecting change for collective change” and help shape the future of our Jewish community.  Imagine the impact we could make if every family participates in the CAMPaign for Change!

Tzedakah boxes have been generously donated in honor of the next generation who will impact change.
