WELCOME TO CAMP TANNER!
Camp Tanner Inc. welcomes you to CAMP TANNER., located at Bill Tanner Kin Camp in Embro, Ontario. In the heart of Southern Ontario, Camp Tanner is a small camp with BIG spirit.
For six weeks, every Sunday afternoon until Friday night, each camper enjoys a jam packed week of affordable fun provided by an incredible staff team. Each week is created with a special and unique theme. Daily activities include team-building with low-ropes, crafts, games, nature sessions, sports, Christian education, swimming, themed meals, campfire, and more.
Campers at senior camps participate in their choice of coached activity or sport throughout the week while junior campers choose their own adventure from a variety of games, high and low energy activities, and self-directed crafts.

Camp Tanner's big fundraiser each year is our Dinner Auction. This year our Auction was held on Saturday February 2, 2019 at the Embro Arena. The meal was catered by Janice's Fine Country Catering and the auction included over 400 items.
This year's auction was a success despite winter weather. With the help of our volunteers and sponsors, we managed to raise approximately $13,000!!! Thank you to all those who donated their time, energy, auction items and hard earned money to support our event.
CHARITY STATUS - THANKS TO ALL OF OUR DONORS!
Camp Tanner is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency. We have 6 weeks of camp which operate on a non-profit basis and rely on donors each year to keep our camp running. They also help support some camper registrations, allowing children who could not otherwise afford camp to attend Camp Tanner. Camp provides an amazing experience for many staff and kids each year to grow and develop many important life skills. 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.
