Outdoor Education Facilities

Tamarack Camps Outdoor Education (TCOE) has 6 villages for overnight camping that can accommodate up to 100 guests each.  Groups staying residentially will have exclusive use of their village, including their own private lodge and campfire pit.  Sports fields, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts are located throughout camp for use by our guests, in addition to many hiking and nature trails throughout our 1,250 acres.

Camp Maas and Butzel Retreat Center facilities are ideal for group gatherings, especially corporate seminars, professional development, community-minded groups, and staff training. We do not accommodate lifestyle events, including weddings and wedding parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and associated parties, and the like. Before finalizing a rental, our team will evaluate with you our ability to properly meet your request.
