The Tamarack Camps Story

Summer after summer, camper after camper, the precious memories of Tamarack Camps live on throughout our community. At every age and stage of personal development, each child embarks upon a unique journey, developing a greater sense of self-esteem and self-confidence. Committed to providing each camper with a quality, Jewish camping experience since 1902, Tamarack Camps offers the ideal time and space for exploration and discovery. Judaic values and ethics intersect with a beautiful, natural setting, surrounded by energetic, nurturing staff. Campers conclude our programs with a deeper understanding and appreciation for their Jewish heritage and traditions. In our informal camp settings, Jewish culture and values are woven into daily camp life in a fun, exciting and enriching way. In all of our programs, a child's Jewish identity takes shape, as we deliver an amazing, Jewish camping experience of hiking, canoeing, athletics, song, dance and so much more.

Why We Host Schlichim

"Hosting Shlichim during the summers remains a wonderful experience for our family. Each year we meet dynamic and fascinating young Israelis with whom we maintain contact long after the summer has gone. Our kids are the greatest beneficiaries of the experience, finding in the Shlichim individuals who they come to regard as older siblings. It is an event we look forward to every year with good reason and plan on continuing for years to come."

- Soberman Family, The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp, Prosserman JCC

Connecting with Israel

“Although it was so new, Israel brought upon me a familiar sense of belonging much like what I feel at Camp Chi every summer. The ability to be in a place where one feels so free and proud to be a Jew is a feeling that makes me so proud to be involved in my Jewish heritage.” - Joshua Krawitz, 17, Camp Chi, JCC Chicago
