The Best Summer Starts with the Best Staff

By: Carly Weinstock

By Carly Weinstock, Camp Director

Working at Tamarack Camps is different than working anywhere else during the summer. At camp, everyone strives toward one common goal: creating an enriching and unforgettable experience for children. Our talented, experienced and nurturing staff have fun each and every day while building friendships, developing critical skills and making a difference in the life of our campers.

We are so excited to share our amazing Senior Leadership for the summer of 2024!  This amazing team is full of teachers, social workers, artists and medical professionals who represent the best in their respective fields.

Earlier this month, this stellar group got together to meet our year-round team and start planning for the summer. We can’t wait for you to meet everyone and see them in action!
