mysterious Camp 30




Here are some pics I took of my friend Shannon at Camp 30, just outside Toronto.  It's a strange place, used to be a POW camp during the 2nd world war...

  4. Yeah it was an old POW camp converted into the great lakes college of Ontario. Anyways Triads took it over and held the dean hostage. They didn't get what they wanted so they beheaded him . Prettyy gruesome

  5. Think it was called CampX and not a POW camp but trained agents of the OSS and other Allied services during WW2. The OSS later became the CIA.

  6. According to the Star, Camp 30 was a POW camp for German officers: http://www.thestar.com/news/ontario/article/813782--historic-camp-30-saved-from-wrecker-s-ball
    Camp X was indeed an intelligence centre:

  7. Camp 30 is in Bowmanville. Camp X or Intrepid Park is in Whitby and all there is is a plaque...
