Description

The camp was bought in 1946 by 66th Toronto Scout Troop. It was home to summer camps for decades. When 66th Toronto folded sometime in the 1980s and camp was given to 11th Oakville Scout Group.

Stu Eley of the Scouts Canada's Ontario corporation reports that this camp consists of a cottage that had been abandoned since about 1990. The property was sold back to the original owners in 2005.
