Tamarack Farm

 

Overview

Guided by an experienced staff and centering around community building, cooperative work projects and community service, the program delegates responsibilities to campers within the community. Participants learn to build cabins, milk cows, pick scarlet runner beans, lay a stone walk, shingle a roof and pour a concrete floor. Work projects are often service oriented: Boys and girls may build a play structure for a local women's shelter or help preserve wildlife habitats. Many leisure-time recreational activities are available.
