If you’re coming from out of town, we encourage you to stay with the group as part of the whole Summer Camp experience.

We’ve chosen Massey College on the University of Toronto campus for its location close to the St. George subway station, and setting on a lovely leafy quadrangle. The accommodation is basic, but the rooms are clean and spacious. No air conditioning, but fans are provided. A private bathroom is shared with one or two other rooms. A limited number of “senior suites” with ensuite bathrooms are available. Continental breakfast is included with all rooms.

Room rates for 2018 will be finalized in January. See the Massey College web site for the regular and senior/student rates for 2017.

Parking is not included. (Weekly parking passes will be available for about $80. Please email for details.)

Once residence prices are set in January, we’ll add further instructions to this website, and you will request your room directly from Massey College. A deposit equaling one night’s stay will be due in April. You’ll pay the balance on arrival. Rooms are limited—PLEASE BOOK AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE.

Summer Camp participants are under no obligation to stay at the designated residence.

Please note that Massey College is not wheelchair accessible. Even ground floor rooms have a few steps into the building. If needed, we can help you find nearby accessible hotel or residence accommodation.


Coming to Ontario for Genealogy Summer Camp? Add a few days to the start of your trip to attend the biggest family history conference in Canada.

OGS Conference 2018 will be held at the University of Guelph from June 1 to 3. Guelph is about 90 minutes from Toronto with good connections by bus or train. Register for Genealogy Summer Camp and you’ll get a coupon worth $35 off your full weekend Conference registration, or $20 off a single-day registration.

What a great way to start your week of learning!
