About The Board
Camp Tanner is run by a volunteer board of directors. Each director holds a seat for 3 years until they are re-elected or leave the board. The board can have between 8-12 board members. Board members are usually elected at our Annual General Meeting (in November) each year. However, board members can be elected by the board from the membership.
The board oversees all that Camp Tanner Inc. does. Everything from our camps, to our fundraisers and everything to get ready for camp in the off season. The board meets on the first Wednesday of every month at Knox United Church in Embro. If you have ideas to propose to the board you can always contact us to ask about attending a meeting. We are always looking for something different to make Camp Tanner even better.
Welcome New Members!
This year at our AGM (2018) we welcomed 2 new board members: Margaret Dykeman and Mary Ellin Perrin. We said a grateful thank you to Megan Schiedel and Dave Leslie who left their board seats this year. Megan Schiedel was only on our board for a year but made a big impact, most notably with the collection and storage of donated dry goods. Dave Leslie has been the Treasurer for Camp Tanner for a whopping 25 years and we thank him for his ongoing dedicaiton.
Want To Help?
Our board is amazing, but they are only 12 people, and there is a lot of work that goes into making camp happen each year. The Board is always looking for more people to help!
We also always need people to volunteer on subcommittees. Subcommittees can have as many volunteers on them as there is interest. To get involved with our subcommittees feel free to contact the chair of the interested committee. All committees, when they meet and their chair is listed on the side column of this page.
Lastly, we are always looking for one time volunteers. If your interested in volunteering please contact us. We are always looking for extra hands for odd jobs and projects. Some specific projects which we need people for each year include: the auction, other fundraisers, set up & clean up at camp, work projects at the camp, staff trainings, etc.
