Camp 30, the Lake Ontario Officers’ Camp-Bowmanvillewas a Prisoner of War Camp. It held captive German army officers from the Afrika Korps, Luftwaffe aircrew and naval officers.
In 2013 the property made Heritage Canada’s top 10 “List of endangered places of 2013” due to the developer’s intention to demolish the property. The buildings were named National Historic Site, which resulted in halting the demolition plan.
