Cameron Bagg (born 1963) is a Canadian paranormal investigator and founder of the Peterborough Haunt Club. He is also known as simply “the ghost guy”.
Bagg grew up in North York and has a daughter and a son. Bagg began researching haunting in 1988, when he was 23, which is also the year that he claims to have had his first encounter with a spirit. The encounter occurred after he and his wife moved into a supposedly haunted apartment. Bagg claimed to have heard voices calling his name and footsteps in the next room when no one else was in the house. A quick investigation found that an elderly woman had died of a stroke in the apartment’s kitchen. Bagg stated that this haunting was “like a wake-up call” and began his investigations into other hauntings soon afterwards. Two years after he began his investigations, he founded the Haunt Club, a Peterborough group who investigate hauntings.
Between 1988 and 2008 Bagg claims to have investigated over 100 “valid” hauntings which includes two Toronto-area schools. Bagg doesn’t charge for his investigations and since 2006 also runs workshops teaching other people how to conduct their own paranormal investigations. Bagg states that the purpose of his investigations is to document evidence and then assist spirits with ‘moving on’.
Bagg has stated that his goal is to “put Peterborough on the map as the ghost capital of the world,”.
