Camp Tanner's big fundraiser each year is our dinner auction. This years event was hosted on Feb. 4, 2017 and was a great success. We had a full house and over 400 items up for auction. This wouldn't be possible without our amazing donors. We would just like to say thank you to all who attended and supported this event. Also thank you to all the volunteers and committee members who's hard work makes this event possible each year.
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.
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.
Craft Items Needed
Each summer Camp Tanner's amazing craft directors plan cool crafts for our campers to create. These crafts rely on craft supplies lots of which come from donations. If you have leftover craft supplies kicking around your home consider donating them to Camp Tanner's craft cabin this year.
