We continue to hold our Israeli brothers and sisters close during this dark time. While we grieve loss and stand in solidarity, we also have found comfort in our camp community. For many families, Tamarack Camps is the link that brings us close to Israel. On our campgrounds and through our Israeli Camper Program, Israeli and American children play together and campers find role models in our shlichim. On the Joy and Allan Nachman Teen Leadership Trip to Israel, and the Sue & Alan Kaufman & Family Teen Mission to Israel, our families and teens discover more than Israel’s physical beauty – they feel the power of partnership. 

This cherished bond reminds us of the importance of camp and what makes Tamarack so special. In times like these, our kids need camp more than ever. Please enjoy the following upcoming events with more to come. We will continue to spread Jewish joy and stand with Israel year round and, as the excitement for the summer of 2024 builds, we hope you will join us.
