The real life Camp White Pine has been entertaining summer campers at its Hurricane Lake property since 1956. With 1600 acres of rambling forest, exposed rock and shoreline, the camp is quite different from its cut-rate movie incarnation. Fully equipped with all the latest activities and comfortable accommodation, Camp White Pine continues to be a popular destination for Canadian and American kids aged 7 through to 16. Need more proof of its Canadian roots? Best-selling Canadian author, Margaret Atwood, and iconic artist Charles Pachter are past alumni.
