Summer 2016 camps have now come to an End
Sadly we have reached the end of the 2016 camping season. We had a great summer with so many amazing campers coming out to take part in all the fun. If your looking for pictures of your campers take a look at our gallery page. Pictures are slowly being added from our summer of fun. Thanks to all the staff, committee and volunteers who made camp possible this year. We hope to see many of you back next year. We also hope to see all of our awesome campers back next year. Stay tuned to our registration page this winter to get signed up for next summer when registration opens.
Thanks To 100 Women Who Care OXford!
Camp Tanner was selected by the members of 100 Women Who Care Oxford to receive their collective donations. This will help to send many campers to camp this summer and provide enhanced hand washing facilities. We are very grateful for this and thank you very much for your generosity.
This years dinner auction fundraiser was held on Sat. Feb. 6, 2016. It was a great success with 220 people in attendance and raising approximately 11,000. We would just like to say thank you to all the local businesses that donated items for auction, all the supporters who attended and all our volunteers who helped plan and run the event. We couldn't do this every year without all of you. THANK YOU! Next years Auction will be Sat. Feb. 4, 2017.
Due to all the support extended to us and the hard work of so many great people, Camp Tanner has now been officially extended charity status by the Canada Revenue Agency. This is such amazing news for our camp, which has always run on a non-profit basis. Hopefully this will allow us to support even more staff and kids and continue to grow and develop! Thank you again to everyone for your support throughout the years! This is a great development for us and we couldn't have done it without you all!
If you are looking to donate to Camp Tanner directly or provide financial support for a child, please contact Sandra Schurman through the form below.
