We had inquires for 2020 (delayed by COVID) from Kansas, British Columbia, Quebec, Denmark and the UK.
We have confirmed a group from the UK are coming in 2024. We are actively reaching out to contacts from Scouts BSA and others to join us.
Tell us when you are coming to Canada, we will help you plan your trip, make reservations, assist with transportation, and maybe even home hospitality. We can arrange longer stays at Camp Samac in cabins or tents and assist with extra gear you won't want to carry with you on a train or airplane. We can help with everything from grocery shopping to onsite activities and off site visits to tourist sites.
The nearest airport is Toronto Pearson International (YYZ) with daily flights from hundreds of destinations. Easy public transit from the airport to the camp.
