We are thrilled each year to share the camp with the Boy Scouts of America.

Typically the Boy Scouts and Venturers are in the US 6th Infantry Regiment. As well, U.S. Scouts can participate in the combined Canadian and U.S. Artillery Regiment

The US 6th is one of four Infantry Regiments that participate in the Scout Brigade of Fort George.

The other three Regiments are the 8th (Kings) Regiment, The Royal Newfoundland Regiment and the 49th Regiment of Foot, all of which are Canadian Scouts. As well, U.S. Scouts participate in the combined Canadian and U.S. Artillery Regiment. See the Artillery Regiment page for more details about this unique opportunity

The 6th Regiment of the United States Infantry is, of course, comprised of U.S. Scouts. Each year the U.S. Scouts are invited to participate in this truly remarkable Scout’s Canada Scout Program sponsored by the Greater Toronto Council. This Website is dedicated to helping U.S. Scouts and their leaders get involved.
