Sorcerers Safari Magic Camp is a performance arts camp dedicated to teaching the art of magic to young people.

History[edit]

Sorcerer's Safari is the creation of Torontonian Mike Segal, who has worked as a magician since high school.[1]

In 1996, the program started with only a small number of day campers only. In 1997, ten magic enthusiasts joined Segal and his wife and staff at Camp Tamarack.[2]

The camp's student body includes youths from Japan, South Africa, Belgium, France and England[3] to be taught by professional magicians.[4]

The camp became part of the Ontario Camping Association (OCA) in 2004.
