Tamarack Camps Annual Fundraiser

By: Detroit Jewish News

Comedian Nate Fridson will be supporting a cause close to his heart when he performs at the annual Send a Kid to Tamarack (Sk2T) event April 28 at the Berman Center for Performing Arts.

Fridson was a Tamarack camper from the late 1990s into the 2000s and then a counselor at Camp Maas after that. A Huntington Woods native, Fridson is a rising star from the Detroit comedy scene. Aside from playing clubs in New York, Atlanta, Baton Rouge and elsewhere, he recently traveled to Japan to perform for the U.S. troops stationed on Okinawa.

“This means a lot to me to perform at SK2T this years,” he said. “I don’t get back to camp much, so it’s nice to be able to connect with the organization in a different way. SK2T is a very important program in that it helps kids share in the life-shaping experiences that Tamarack provides.

“At camp, I fell in the mud, learned how to make a candle and even got to see a bear one time. Some of these stories might come out at the show – who knows?”

He’s also pleased to be working with some old friends organizing the event, which begins at 6:30 p.m.

SK2T will include a silent auction, small plates and entertainment. For tickets go to All proceeds help support the Send a Kid to Tamarack Annual Campaign and Tamarack’s mission of providing enriching Jewish camping experiences for children and families respectful of financial ability.
