Camp Arthur Savard takes its name from a famous lumberjack from Charlevoix whose praise can be heard through songs and stories. Mr. Arthur Savard was born in 1893. At a very young age, he left for the lumber camps where he became a lumberjack. His fame was woven with the cords of wood he logged. While everyone only made 2 to 3 cords a day, Arthur logged 5. This legendary lumberjack died on November 2, 1980, at the age of 87 in Pointe-au-Bic.
The camp was built by people from Charlevoix, most of whom were loggers, who were taught log building. Camp Arthur Savard celebrated its opening on December 21, 2001.
