Tenants have access to all the facilities with the exception of the tractor shed and the craft cabin. Please see the notes below on the swimming pool and the cabins.

Security Deposit

Anyone who wishes to book the camp must supply a security deposit. This is required to cover the cost of replacing/repairing missing/broken items and last minute cancellations.
Any extra cleaning required will be charged at a rate of $20/hour.
Costs that exceed the security deposit will be charged to the group responsible.
The camp is inspected before and after each booking to check for damage and to ensure that it is ready for the next group.
Please report any damage immediately. This will ensure that your stay will be as pleasant as possible.

West Nile Virus

There are some concerns about the West Nile Virus. Our current policy is to ask tenants to take the following precautions:

  • wear light-coloured long sleeved/legged clothing
  • avoid being outside during dusk and dawn (when mosqituos are most active)
  • use an insect repellant containing DEET

Cell Phones

Camp Tanner and the local area has poor reception for cell phones. Some phones may work and some may not.
However, there are two phone lines at the camp. One at the pool house (for emergencies) and one in the longhouse. If you need to make a long distance phone call, please write down the particulars on the log located by the phone.
When the phone bill comes in you will be invoiced as appropriate.
