Tamarack Camps hosted its first “Mosquito Event,” a take-off on the popular Moth storytelling competitions started by NPR. The idea to host a storytelling event centered around camp memories came from the organization’s Alumni Committee. What better way to engage alums than to host an event where they can tell their stories? 

About 75 people attended. Key storytellers, ranging in age from 30 to 86, were Josh Lefkowitz, Marv Berman, Eddie Berger, Kate Bush and Jenifer Strauss, with Lee Trepeck as the emcee. The topics ranged from boyhood to love to perseverance.
