White Pine Council
It starts with Scouts.
Camp Samac’s co-ed summer programs are operated by Scouts Canada, and are open for ALL children in the communities we serve! Come join us for a wilderness experience in the heart of Durham Region! Fun, adventure, learning new skills and creating memories -- this is what Camp Samac promises to deliver to each camper. Whether it is your first time attending an outdoor camp program or you are a seasoned camper looking for a challenge, Camp Samac offers something for all ages & abilities!
You can choose from 4 different programs at Camp Samac. The Day Camp is for youth aged 5-13. Our daily activities include swimming, arts and crafts, canoeing, outdoor skills (i.e. fire building, shelter building, hiking, knot-tying, orienteering) and outdoor education activities. The Residential Camp offers the same activities above but extends the fun overnight, providing the outdoor experience of sleeping in tents and learning to live amongst and with nature. The Leadership Training and Counsellor Training programs are designed to support the development of personal and professional skills in adolescents 13-16 years.
For more detailed information on the programs we offer, please see our "Program Info" tab.
Use the Survival Guides to decide which program is best for your camper and then register your child!
