Day Camp Policies

Contact us

2022 day camps will run with COVID-19 program modifications in place. Due to challenges presented by COVID-19, Backyard Bunch will not be offered this summer.


You will receive a confirmation email upon registration. Additional information detailing what to bring, wear and other important information will be emailed two weeks prior to the start of the camp week.


Limited scholarship opportunities are available for Ramsey County residents. Please call prior to June 1 for further information.


Your registration implies permission to use photographs of your child(ren) for Tamarack Nature Center promotional purposes. If you do not want your child photographed, please call 651-266-0360.

Cancellations and refunds

All cancellations and transfers must be made at least two weeks before the start of camp.

Registration fee will be refunded, minus a 20% fee. Registered campers may transfer to an available camp for a $10 processing fee. Registration may not be transferred between campers.

If Tamarack Nature Center must cancel a program, a full refund will be issued.


Nature doesn’t stop when it rains and neither do we! Some of our best memories are shared during those unexpected moments. However, certain activities may be canceled due to severe weather, and children will be sheltered inside if necessary.

Special needs

If your child has special needs due to allergies, disabilities or health concerns, please make appropriate notes on the registration form. We can accommodate many concerns with advance notice. If you have any questions, please contact our camp coordinator.

If your child has a health condition that requires Epinephrine and/or Benadryl please download the release form below and have your physician complete it and return it to Tamarack Nature Center two weeks before the first camp start date. Epinepherin/Benadryl release (PDF)
