Pack Your Bags… for Camp!

Now that spring is finally here, it’s time to start planning for summer! And what better way to spend some of those lazy hazy days than at Genealogy Summer Camp

Genealogy Summer Camp buttonToronto Branch has been running this innovative program for almost two decades now and, over the years, we’ve welcomed more than 140 adult “campers” from England, right across Canada and many US states. We invite out-of-town researchers to Toronto for a full week of concentrated family history research under the guidance of local experts. Local residents are welcome too, and may choose to stay with the group or attend as “day-campers”.

This is an intensive week – the group is on the move every day, travelling to different libraries and archives – but we build in plenty of time for campers to do their own research. While the Summer Camp curriculum emphasizes sources for genealogists researching families who lived in what is now Toronto, anyone with ancestors anywhere in Ontario will find a wealth of material to explore in the city’s wonderful repositories.

This year’s Genealogy Summer Camp will run from Sunday 7 June to Friday 12 June 2015. Enrolment will be limited to allow for individual guidance and to accommodate the venues we will be visiting. The fee for the 2015 Summer Camp is $260, which includes about 7 hours of lectures and tutorials, about 25 hours of hands-on instruction, and all worksheets and handouts.

For full details of the program and how to register, visit our Genealogy Summer Camp webpages.
