History

Sorcerer's Safari is the creation of Torontonian Mike Segal, who's been working as a magician since high school.


In 1996, the program started for day campers only, and there were only a few of them. Then in 1997, ten eager magic enthusiasts joined Magic Mike, his wife Jen, and a few keen staffer at Camp Tamarack.

Now Sorcerers Safari attracts an international student body, including youths from Japan, South Africa, Belgium, France and England.

In 2002, the program moved to Camp White Pine, the same camp location where they filmed the movie Meatballs.

Here campers, who come in droves from all over North America study the art of magic, tutored by professional magicians, while enjoying a fun holiday in the great outdoors.

Sorcerers Safari magic camp became part of the Ontario Camping Association (OCA) in 2004.

In 2007, Sorcerers Safari magic camp celebrated its official 10th anniversary.
