33 Signs You’re A Tamaracker

Camp Tamarack is turning 33 years old. You may not have been around for all 33 of those years, but you’ve been around long enough to develop signs that come with being a Tamaracker. Here are some of those signs.

1. You’re still unsure of how to spell Kool-Aid/Cool-Aid.

By the way, the correct spelling is Cool-Aid.

2. This is the only song you know and like by Marilyn Manson.

3. You change your name on Facebook.

4. Your desktop background, cellphone wallpaper and/or screensaver is or was THIS at some point in time.

5. You sit/jump on the tramp even though you know you shouldn’t.


6. “Word on Sequoia and Main” is how you credit your gossip.

7. As far as you’re concerned, only 4 countries exist in this world…

…and only 1 can win.

8. You consider Bracebridge, Ontario a hometown of yours.

9. Punk Rock, Halfway Lake and Mosquito Coast are among your top vacation destinations.

12. You add MEGA in front of everything you say.

14. You sit down for dinner wondering what the soup du jour is.

15. You think that staying up playing tennis for 24hrs straight is easily manageable.

“Only 16hrs left!”

16. You dream of driving this…

and talking on this…

17. Making your bed and folding your clothes is something you’re proud of.

21. When it’s your birthday, you sing this…

…spin THIS…

…and WIN this…

22. Unless you’re at Wabora, in which case you EAT this…

(NOT this…)

…SING this…

…and GET this…

Tobogganing down the maintenance path, anyone?

25. Listening to this song makes you need to go to the bathroom…

26. Even if you don’t dance, you know what this is…

30. You long for the day you get this…

and tear up a little when someone gets this…

31. You apply to be Head of THIS…
