OK, I guess it's time I put my two cents in. Living in Central NY and
going to Canada frequently, I have NEVER needed any kind of ID. Stop
at the border they ask if you have any fruits, veggies, or pets, where
you're from and where you're going in Canada...have a nice visit. Unless they
have a reason to suspect you're not telling the truth or you might have
contraband they don't ask for ID. One of our local 5th grade classes goes
to Toronto every year. The school has a high % of foriegn students. The
following is from thier info for the trip.
"We will be crossing the border into Canada, if your child was NOT born
in the US you need to provide proof of citizenship or a copy of thier
birth certficate and documents proving legal resident status or thier
passports. Those born in the US should know thier place of birth"
My daughter said, all the border guards did was get on the bus, talk to
the teacher and get all the pertinent information from him. They didn't
talk to the students at all.
But being scouts...you should be prepared :)
