Campers, bring your brilliant ideas for fun this year! Let’s make this summer the best ever - together! I hope you come ready to share in the magic that is Tanadoona - a place where everyone is welcome; a place where you see the greatness in others and a chance to find it in yourself."

- Anthony "Toots" Teed, Tanadoona's Outdoor Programs Manager
