Dear Camp Families, Staff and Supporters,
The Camp Tanner Inc. board met last night. Unfortunately, we came to a very difficult decision. Camp Tanner will not be opening for summer 2021 due to COVID-19.
A number of factors played a role in making this decision. We have been working closely with the local health unit to determine the possibilities for us to open in summer 2021. They have indicated that at this time, the current re-opening plan does not include overnight camps. Thus, unless changes are made by the province before summer, overnight camps will again be not allowed to run. With the province currently entering another stay-at-home order, they do not see an announcement of this kind being made in the near future. With this amount of uncertainty and numbers on the rise we feel it is unlikely we will be permitted to run again this summer. As we would need to start preparing for our summer season, we do not feel it is fair to our staff or families to put off the decision any longer. Thus, we have come to the decision to remain closed.
Ultimately, we feel that the situation will not be resolved enough to allow for a safe camp environment this summer. We want to ensure that our staff, campers and families are safe, and feel that at this time remaining closed is the best way to do this.
We have made this decision at this point to ensure that both staff and parents have enough time to make alternate arrangements for this summer.
We want to thank you for your continued support, and hope to be able to open for summer 2022. Until then, keep watching our social media for some fun posts and activities over the summer.
Keep safe, and continue to keep the camp spirit alive,
Grrrruff & The Camp Tanner Board
