Harry Houdini helped organize the Society of American Magicians (S.A.M.) in 1902, the oldest magic group devoted to learning and performing the art of magic. In an effort to teach a new generation of magicians, the S.A.M. sponsors the Colorado Springs S.Y.M., which was formed in 1993. All who have an interest in magic are welcome to join us.
