Youth are welcome to arrive at camp on Monday, Aug 5 after 2pm, dinner will be served. Tuesday is a tour of Toronto landmarks, beach and dinner out.  On Wednesday, GTA Scouts will have an International Scouting day at the campsite, through shared activities and games, we will meet over 200 Scouts from the UK staying at Woodland Trails.  Our guests will leave for home on Thursday but 7th Markham youth can stay at the camp until pick up time Thursday.  Non-overnight options are available as well, please contact either Scouter Thom or Scouter Bryant if you have any questions:
