Free Taste Of Tamarack

Toronto Day Camps

Summer Camps In Toronto Ontario

Camp Tamarack is one of Ontario’s most respected and established overnight camps. Its impressive facilities are located on a beautiful private lake in the heart of Muskoka. We can’t wait for campers to enjoy Tamarack’s multi-faceted program and camp spirit, all while building friendships and memories. In order to give 6-14 year olds, many of whom have not yet experienced overnight camp, a “taste of Tamarack”, we offer the following opportunities:

  • Introductory Day Trip … “Taste of Tamarack”

  • Introductory Mini-Acorn Weekend… “Taste of Tamarack”

  • Introductory Acorn Program

Campers turning 6-10 in 2020 who in Summer 2020 register for at least one session at Zodiac Day Camp (or are siblings of current Tamarack campers) can enjoy a “Taste of Tamarack” Day Trip opportunity AT NO COST (for a first-time participant). Other children the same age (e.g. friends, relatives, etc.) who do not attend a session at Zodiac in Summer 2020 are welcome to participate in the amazing Introductory Day Trip opportunity at a reasonable cost of $99.00 plus H.S.T.
