A note from Christi: Ta-Man-A-Wis (TAM) was closed a few years ago. I'm
not sure of the exact year, sometime between 2006-2009. The council still
has the lease. A few months ago Silver Sage granted permission to a
taskforce to begin the process of re-opening TAM. We hope to have it
re-opened for troop use by the end of the summer. However, using it for
residents camp is several years away.
Thank you again for your webpage. Please keep up the great work!

campsite and began to share Camp Tendoy with the Camp Fire Girls.
