Outpost Camps

Get in touch with nature at Outpost Camp.

Let go of everyday routine as you tune into the great outdoors. The Outpost Experience and Ultimate Agree are rustic wilderness programs for high school teens located in remote locations of the Upper Peninsula in Michigan or Wawa, Ontario. These programs focus on hiking, canoeing, and creating strong and meaningful communities in the great outdoors.

All Outpost staff must:

  • Be a friend, teacher and role model
  • Plan and lead all camping trips
  • Be responsible for developing and implementing creative programming
  • Sleep in tents while camping
  • Assist with all meal preparation and clean-up
  • Obtain lifeguard and wilderness first-aid certification (provided for all staff)
  • Live in a remote wilderness location
  • Be responsible for the care and well-being of the campers

Due to the nature of this program, staff are not permitted time off for the duration of the program and must be available around the clock for campers.

While at base camp, staff have separate sleeping quarters from the campers. When on camping trips, staff will sleep in tents at primitive wilderness campsites with no amenities – that is, unless you count the Northern Lights, breathtaking sunsets and the call of the loon.

Tamarack Camps is an equal employment opportunity workplace.

Travel Trips

Lead their journey of a lifetime.

On a Travel Trip, you will journey throughout the United States (out west or in Alaska) or Israel with a group of teens and fellow staff members. Highlights include hiking and camping, backpacking trips, visiting incredible state and national parks, and experiencing the beauty of nature without modern devices.

Tamarack Camps is an equal employment opportunity workplace.
