Our Name

Once upon a time there was a tree in a forest. But, what does a tree have to do with kids? This tree, the Tamarack, is special, just like the children we help through the Camp Tamarack program. We care for, connect with and empower our special kids to grow into the very best person they can be. 

The Tamarack tree, unlike most trees with needle like leaves, loses its foliage in the fall and through the winter stands apart from the rest of the trees because of its apparent lifelessness. Given the right environment, however, it will blossom forth to become one of the most majestic trees in the forest.

Like the Tamarack tree in winter, children with educational barriers also stand apart, marked by the differences between them and other children. Camp Tamarack exists to change that by providing a nourishing environment with successful experiences in academics, sports and self-esteem to help them grow.
