Info For Parents
Please note, your child may have a counsellor of a different gender than them (ie. a boy camper with a girl counsellor). If this is the case their will be a staff of the same gender who will be sleeping in the cabin during the night and will be there during changing times. We hired staff this year based on their abilities not their gender to ensure that we have the best possible staff spending time with your campers.

Camp Tanner's big fundraiser each year is our dinner auction. 2018's dinner auction was very successful again this year. We hosted our dinner auction on Saturday Feb. 3, 2018 at the Embro arena. Thanks to all our very generous donors and businesses we had over 400 items in our auction this year! We were able to raise $12,600 this year! We are so thankful to everyone who came out and everyone who donated and volunteered their time to help make it happen.
Thanks To All Our Donors
Camp Tanner has completed yet another great year of summer camps. Our camp is run largely by volunteers and is non-profit. We rely on our fundraisers and our generous donors who make camp possible each year. We are very grateful for everything the community around us contributes each year. Thank you very much for your generosity. To see some of our supporters please visit our Fundraisers & Supporters Page.
Camp Tanner is a registered charity by the Canada Revenue Agency. We have 6 weeks of camp which operate on a non-profit basis. We rely on donors each year to keep our camp running and to help support campers, who could not otherwise afford camp, be able to come to Camp Tanner. Camp provides an amazing experience for many staff and kids each year to grow and develop many important life skills! Thank you again to everyone for your support throughout the years!
