We Are Moving to Cabins! – June 9, 2021 Update
We are excited to announce that Camp Squeah will be transitioning our 2021 Go Beyond summer camps to onsite overnight camps, utilizing our cabin accommodations. Following the publication of new Public Health guidelines for summer camps, Camp Squeah has elected to run our planned camps onsite, rather than remotely, in order to utilize our traditional facilities and activities.
What does this mean for Go Beyond Camps?
Dates for all of our planned camps remain the same; however, we will transition the Go Beyond Camps to utilize cabin accommodations. Participants will no longer be required to bring their own tent, and can expect a more traditional Squeah summer camp experience. Adjustments will be made to program delivery of our summer camp programming, based on guidance from BC Public Health, BC CDC, and the BC Camps Association. These adjustments will be in line with the changes that we’ve seen in all our public interactions over the past year.
The Go Beyond Middle and Go Beyond Teen Boys/Girls camps will both include a one-night overnight hiking experience, just as our traditional summer camps have included for many years. The Go Beyond Teen Wotten camp will remain our only camp during which participants will be accommodated in tents and/or tarps.

We’re Grateful for Support
Thank you all for your patience in the past weeks as we have evaluated the plans that we are making for our summer camps. We set ourselves deadlines in April and May to make decisions on the nature of our camps, but felt that we were unable to do so based on the summer camp restrictions in place at that time. We are beyond grateful for your patience and willingness to hold on with us, and are ever appreciative of your continued prayers and support.
Urgent Staffing Request
We are still urgently looking to fill key staff positions. We are seeking people who love Jesus and who love to serve, who will help us nurture and care for the campers entrusted to our care this summer. Specifically, we need a number of cabin leaders (7 male and 4 female), 3-4 kitchen staff, a lifeguard, a nurse/First Aid attendant, and a few resource counselors who can care for the needs of our cabin leaders. Please spread the word, call us, or direct folks to our

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.
