2021: Water has been restored to the Schoolhouse but is untreated and should not be consumed. New water-saving toilets have been installed.
This structure was built around 1950 on land purchased from the Welsh brothers. They sold the property to the Parry Sound School Board for $1 and constructed the building for them for $17,000. On Feb. 23, 1998, the SSCA acquired the Schoolhouse and its property from the Township of the Archipelago…for a dollar!
Today, the children’s Day Camp is held at the Schoolhouse on weekdays in July and August. On weekends, it is used for: the annual Arts and Crafts show during Regatta; the Annual General Meeting; Environment Day; Cottage Socials and other special SSCA events.
The Lending Library is located in the Schoolhouse. It is open during Day Camp hours (Monday to Friday, 10am to 3pm). There is a good assortment of fiction and non-fiction as well as young adult and children’s books. Feel free to borrow a book. Please re-shelve books when you are finished with them.
