Camp Samac

With over 60 hectares (150 acres) of forested nature in the middle of Oshawa, this camp remains a quiet retreat for youth. The property was donated to the Scouts in 1943 by Colonel R.S. McLaughlin. Come and explore the log-style cabins and outdoor swimming pool that opened on the site in the early 1950s.
