May 29 is National Day of Prayer for Camps
As the Summer Program Director at Camp Squeah, I want to invite you to join us on this day praying for the campers and staff that will be part of our community this summer. Campers are excited to return to Squeah this year, many of them for the first time in years. Many of our camp sessions are nearing capacity, or are already waitlisted, but we need help to ensure all these campers have an opportunity to attend camp. Please pray with us as we seek people to join us serving these campers.
Right now we are urgently looking for folks, 17 and older, who love Jesus and are willing to volunteer time this summer. Because of training requirements, most of these roles require a one or two-month commitment. Key positions that we’re looking to fill include:
We need 20 more staff members to serve the campers that are currently registered. We need another 10 in order to open up to our normal capacity and serve those already on our waitlist.
We are Active Year-Round
Summer time, and our summer program, are important parts of our ministry, but please also remember that we covet your prayers all year. Through the fall, winter, and spring seasons we work hard serving retreats, schools, and other rental groups. These groups come with a wide range of needs that we have the opportunity to meet.
Please see our COVID-19 Updates page for information on Camp Squeah COVID-19 protocols for overnight summer camps.

Camp Squeah, in the local Salish dialect, alludes to ‘Place of Refuge’.
Since 1962, Camp Squeah has provided quality summer programs with the aim of enriching the lives of campers through sharing our magnificent natural setting and the deep love of Jesus Christ.
We believe every young person should have the opportunity to experience camping in God’s awe inspiring wilderness. We share with campers, through a Christian perspective, how camp can provide a space for children to discover themselves in a safe and loving environment and that this helps them become confident, mature and fun loving people.
