TEEN FARM SUMMER CAMP

TAMARACK FARM

MIXED GENDER
AGES 15-17

COMMIT TO IMMERSION

Creating Community and Meaning

Leadership, belonging and personal growth are the cornerstone for our Tamarack Farm campers.
 
Today’s teens face mounting pressures to perform in school, prep for college and impress on social media. All while trying to navigate the normal teenage pressures to belong, feel meaningful and be engaged with the world around them. Tamarack Farm offers a unique program designed to provide specific skills and experience living and working together successfully.
 
It is also a bridge to the world that awaits our youth in work or college. The full scale farm, workshop and surrounding pristine wilderness of Vermont provide the perfect setting for a respite and break to recharge in a social environment geared to inspire, energize and nurture. Games, open mic, service and rest days, Town Meetings and many more moments provide intentional reflection and untethered celebration.
 
Our Farm has five possible immersion programs that provide both choice and focus.

Cabin Life

Housing: Tamarack Farmers begin each morning with an uninterrupted view of the woods, surrounded by peers. The cabins are all open three-sided wood structures with individual bunks and storage for each camper. As we build community, it’s important each camper still has their space and campers enjoy personalizing their bunk. Cabin groups are based on gender, with more options for gender non-binary youth.

Facilities: Shared facilities are nearby for all their personal hygiene needs, including fresh water and hot showers.

WHAT OUR CAMPERS SAY

"I helped build the Art Barn and honestly, if it weren’t for that experience I probably wouldn’t have had the confidence to go into Environmental and Mechanical Engineering"

WHY THE FARM?

OUR APPROACH

Tamarack offers teens the opportunity to gain a deeper sense of confidence through meaningful work and face-to-face discussions. Given a chance to step up, our teens are trusted to act, envision and take ownership of projects in a non-competitive way. Together, they tackle new challenges as they build rafters for a new cabin or harvest beets.

Tamarack Offers Exciting Possibilities to Explore.

Dive into creating your summer community. Tamarack Farm campers share responsibilities, assume leadership roles and find growth opportunities in important issues as they explore issues of peace and justice and environmental sustainability.

Campers will spend their days in one of five areas: Environmental Sustainability, Carpentry and Construction, Artists in Residence, Agriculture and Homesteading and Lifeguarding and Wilderness First Aid.

Campers assist and take leadership roles in:
• Farm management
• Building projects
• Harvesting and delivering food to other F&W camps
• Creating art for the soul or to beautify the camp community
• Invasive species control with the lake associations
