NEW! When should I arrive?
Registration for camp begins at 12:00pm. Please do not arrive before 12, because we need time to get prepared. Lunch will be served. Camp officially begins at 2:00pm with introductions and our first seminar. Make sure you give yourselves enough time for lunch and to get settled. It takes about 2 hours to get to Camp from the Highway 400 and Highway 401. Depending on who's doing the driving
Camp is done on Friday at 12:00pm, after which we'll be packing up and eating lunch at camp. After this, we'll be heading back down to Woodbridge (right by Canada's Wonderland) for an after-party of sorts, and you're welcome to come!

How do I register?
Registration is available on-line only, and will only be available at 8:00pm Eastern on June 18. Once you've entered all your information, you will wait to receive a confirmation email, which will provide further instructions.
If you're not around on registration day
Then you have to make your own prior arrangements. Last year, camp filled up in less than half an hour. Maybe this year will be an hour, maybe it will be five minutes.
It is up to you to make sure you register in time. We will not be making special exceptions for people who didn't manage to get in, even if they really, really, really want to come, or if their dog ate their internet connection. If you don't have high-speed internet, you may want to stop by at a friend's house who does, or book a computer at the local library. And if you're not going to be around that day, then you had better make sure you get a friend to sign you up.
Some registration restrictions
Camp Tamarack is open to unmarried young people who are at least 16 on or before December 31st, 2013.
In addition, the purpose of Camp Tamarack is to provide a time of Christian fellowship and growth to Reformed and Presbyterian young people. As such, priority for registrations will be given to conferees from Reformed and Presbyterian churches. Conferees from other backgrounds will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have any concerns about this restriction, please feel free to contact us in advance to discuss.
If you want to cancel your registration, you will receive a refund if you let us know before July 15. This is when we have to pay the camp the majority of the money. Because of our tight budgets, we can't guarantee a refund after that, regardless of the reason. If there's a way for us to get your money back, we'll try.
Registrations are non-transferrable. This means that if you want to drop out of camp, you have to let us know, and we'll find a replacement if we can. If there is someone on the waiting list and you try to transfer to someone else, we will reject that registration (if there is no one on the waiting list, we may accept a transfer of your registration).
