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, low ropes, high and low energy activities, and self-directed crafts.

Thanks To All Our Donors
Camp Tanner has completed yet another great year of summer camps. Our camp is run largely by volunteers and is non-profit. We rely on our fundraisers and our generous donors who make camp possible each year. 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.
Camp Tanner is a registered charity by the Canada Revenue Agency. We have 6 weeks of camp which operate on a non-profit basis. We rely on donors each year to keep our camp running and to help support campers, who could not otherwise afford camp, be able to come to Camp Tanner. Camp provides an amazing experience for many staff and kids each year to grow and develop many important life skills! Thank you again to everyone for your support throughout the years!
