Description

Rogers Reservoir is a large open field with a wooded area at one end. There are several brick outhouses built in 1997 during Camp Kybo. There are trails along the Holland River and a ghost canal system abandoned during construction in 1911. It is close to town allowing Scouts to hike or bike to camp. It is big enough to hold many District events, such as camps with up to 300 Scouts. The camp is owned by the Lake Simcoe Conservation Authority and leased by South Lake Simcoe District.

Circa 2001, shortly before the District became an Area, the lease ($1000 per year) was not renewed and the camp closed.
